HireRight Enterprise helps large employers address the complexities of employment screening by providing a unified solution for managing a global screening program--consistently, efficiently, effectively and conveniently--across more than 200 countries and territories, worldwide, while delivering a local experience for geographically distributed recruiters, security personnel, and applicants or employees. “With differing laws, regulations, norms, privacy concerns, and data and screening requirements around the globe, expanding a screening program internationally is quite a challenging endeavor,” said Lisa Gallagher, vice president of international business, HireRight. “The new enhancements to HireRight Enterprise make it easier for global employers to implement and manage a consistent, yet highly localized global screening program. Through automation, built-in global screening expertise, global services and intelligent ordering logic that understands what information to collect--based on the global location of the person being screened and the searches being requested--HireRight Enterprise delivers a user experience that program owners, global offices and applicants will all appreciate.” HireRight Enterprise enables organizations to initiate and manage background checks around the world from a single ordering interface, improving efficiency and ease of use. Because each country has unique privacy and disclosure laws and procedures for gathering background information, HireRight Enterprise offers targeted features to guide users through the data collection process. HireRight Enterprise includes dynamic, country-specific logic that prompts users to supply the information required to conduct an employment screening in each country and comply with regulations. In addition, new enhancements in HireRight Enterprise improve report results by enabling organizations to collect a 10-year residence history to conduct more comprehensive searches. In another new feature, the solution automatically identifies any gaps in the background history provided by the applicant and prompts them to correct or explain the discrepancy before moving on. These enhancements make it possible for global organizations to deploy and control a global screening program while enabling geographically dispersed business units to manage the program locally through a consistent recruiting and screening process.
