IRVINE, Calif., September 24, 2012 – HireRight, a leader in on-demand employment screening, was presented with a Bronze Stevie® Award and a People’s Choice Award at the 2012 American Business Awards (ABA) in San Francisco. HireRight Applicant Center Mobile was recognized as a Best New Product or Service, in the Software, Mobile On-Demand Application category. In its 10th year, the ABAs – nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned” – are among the nation’s premier business awards programs.

“We are honored by these two Stevie Awards. Our goal with HireRight Applicant Center Mobile was to help employers improve their hiring process while also providing a positive experience for their applicants,” said Mike Petrullo, CEO and president of HireRight. “HireRight Applicant Center Mobile provides candidates with better visibility into the background screening process, enabling them to manage the progress of their checks every step of the way through a smart phone. This greatly improves the applicant experience as well as the turnaround time of a background check, so our clients can hire the best candidates quickly, and we’re thrilled that it has been recognized by the ABA.”
