Using Data Analytics to Drive Screening Program Efficiencies
Learn how using a modern screening analytics solution, such as HireRight Insights, could help your hiring teams gain valuable insights from your data, while also saving time and resources by simplifying reporting on your screening program.
Many Human Resources (HR) teams face mounting pressure to hire and onboard new employees quickly while also juggling a wide range of other responsibilities. As a result, some HR professionals may be struggling to find the time to complete all of their tasks, let alone make strategic hiring decisions. But having elements of your hiring process streamlined could help to maximize productivity – and reporting on your background screening program could be an area where the use of technology can help to drive efficiencies.
Background screening is a critical part of a comprehensive hiring program and, according to HireRight’s 2023 Global Benchmark Report, often provides a range of benefits to employers, including a better quality of hire, more consistent safety and security, and improved regulatory compliance. However, hiring teams often have limited time and resources to get the insights needed to make decisions quickly and confidently to optimize their screening program.
Here, we will share with you how using a modern screening analytics solution, such as HireRight Insights, could help your hiring teams gain valuable insights from your data, while also saving time and resources by simplifying reporting on your screening program.
Using screening analytics dashboards
Background screening programs can include many ever-changing variables. For example, individual background checks may vary for each candidate depending on their role and location, as well as any applicable industry regulations. As a result, it can be difficult to keep track of all the data to identify any underlying trends.
A background screening analytics solution could empower your businesses to better understand the effectiveness of your screening program by providing easy to understand data visualizations and reporting tools. Additionally, interactive dashboards showing key metrics for your program could help you quickly understand the big picture and then drill down into the data for the detail you require to assist you in making informed decisions about your company’s background screening program.
For example, if reducing time to hire is one of your company’s objectives, it may be helpful to know how long your candidate background checks are taking to complete. Pre-configured dashboards summarizing your company’s in-progress and recently completed screens could provide easy access to data about these orders to help you quickly understand potential issues, such as where in the screening orders are taking the longest and if any particular screening services are causing delays.
Quick and simple reporting
Exporting data and looking through multiple spreadsheets and documents to help understand your background screening program can be time-consuming. Organizations may even have multiple people exporting data to spreadsheets, running pivot tables, creating charts and graphs, and then developing presentations or other communications to share that information within the business.
A screening analytics solution could give you faster insights into data points like turnaround time and, adjudication status, all in one place. This could save your organization valuable time and allow your teams to focus more time on talent acquisition instead of data analysis and reporting.
Additionally, interactive dashboards could allow you to dive into the data on your own terms, choosing different data visualizations to gain insights by searching, selecting, drilling down, zooming out, and filtering. Dashboards can often easily be shared with other teams within your organization for more collaboration, high-level reporting, or executive summaries.
