Background screening is a critical step for hiring, but it can seem like a mysterious process for candidates and can even cause some apprehension. HireRight Applicant Center is a personalized candidate portal that demystifies employment screening by providing a transparent way for candidates to interact with the hiring company and screening provider throughout the background check process. It enables candidates to view and manage their background checks in one place, allowing the candidate to submit information and documents, expediting the screening process, reducing unnecessary communications, and improving the candidate experience overall.
“We are pleased that HireRight Applicant Center has been honored as a CODiE Award finalist,” said John Fennelly, chief executive officer, HireRight. “Background checks help employers ensure a safe, secure workplace and high-quality hires, but should also provide a positive candidate experience so employers can hire and onboard talent quickly. HireRight Applicant Center is a significant industry innovation that empowers candidates to understand and oversee the background check process. This finalist achievement underscores one of HireRight’s core values of helping people get hired.”
“All the CODiE finalists this year showcase innovation and creativity in today’s market. We are happy to recognize them for their products that are breaking ground in the software and services industries,” said Rhianna Collier, VP & General Manager for the Software & Services Division at SIIA.
