HireRight Lauded as Best Pre-Employment Screening Provider in Asia

HireRight was recognised for its commitment to data privacy and organisational security at the HRD Service Provider Awards 2018

SINGAPORE, August 23, 2018 –  HireRight, a leading provider of global employment screening solutions, received the award for Best Pre-Employment Screening Provider at the inaugural HR Service Provider Awards.

Organised by Human Resource Director (HRD) Asia, the award aims to discover and recognise the Human Resource (HR) industry’s most valued business partners of the year, from across ten key specialist areas. Only one winner is chosen in each category.

HireRight was chosen as the winner of the pre-employment screening category through a vote by an independent panel of judges from HRD’s global team of subject-matter experts, as well as respected industry professionals. The judges were impressed with HireRight’s commitment to data privacy, as well as its mission to help employers promote safety and security within their organizations.

Apart from mitigating risk, background screening helps an organisation paint a positive corporate image – it shows candidates that their potential future employer invests in workplace safety and security, and that all employees have been vetted equally. With the APAC region bullish in hiring forecasts, it’s even more imperative that companies stand out from their competitors and attract the right talent to their brand,” said Steve Girdler, Managing Director for EMEA and APAC at HireRight.

A leading innovator in the HR industry, HireRight recently announced the launch of HireRight Global, the industry’s first truly global background screening solution. Centred around an enhanced, state-of-the-art technology platform and supported by 24/7 operations and support teams, HireRight Global provides a screening program that has a consistent look and feel around the world while also tailored for local cultures and languages.
