HireRight Named Best Background Screening Provider in Singapore and Hong Kong

Human Resources Magazine Recognises the Best Solution Providers in the Industry

SINGAPORE and HONG KONG, Jan 11, 2016 – HireRight, a leading provider of global employment screening solutions, has been recognized as the Best Background Screening Provider at the Vendors of the Year award ceremonies held in Singapore and Hong Kong.

Organised by Human Resources magazine, the Vendors of the Year awards are an annual vendor rankings report that recognises the best human resources (HR) solution providers in Asia.

HireRight was identified as a finalist through an extensive online survey of HR managers. Winners were then determined by a panel of esteemed HR leaders from a variety of international and local multinational companies, chosen based on a criteria which included performance of the company in the region, quality and innovation of its services and solutions, and thought leadership demonstrated by the company.   

“This is the first time the awards have included a category for background screening, reflecting the prominence it has gained in Asia Pacific over the last year. An increase in cross border recruitment and the number of candidates embellishing or lying about their qualifications have heightened the importance of a thorough and robust background screening program to mitigate risk and ensure a better quality of hire,” said Mr. Steve Girdler, Managing Director of APAC and EMEA, HireRight.

HireRight’s recent key achievements include the launch of its next generation Applicant Center, the industry’s only background check portal designed from the ground up to enhance the candidate’s experience and the employer brand, while increasing recruiting efficiency and speeding time-to-hire. The organization also launched its Asia Pacific website last August to serve as a resource for HR and compliance professionals to learn about background screening trends and best practices.
