HireRight Strengthens Global Offering with Two Key Acquisitions in Japan and Australia
Additions in Asia Pacific region a cornerstone of HireRight’s strategy to deepen relationships with global and local customers
Irvine, Calif., October 2, 2019 – HireRight, a leading provider of global employment background checks, drug testing, education verification and electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify solutions, is pleased to announce the acquisitions of J-Screen and PeopleCheck, leading background screening providers based in Tokyo, Japan and Newcastle, Australia, respectively.
Both acquisitions are integral to HireRight’s strategy to strengthen its global services overall and its presence in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region specifically. These strategic additions will deliver a superior offering for global customers seeking to hire from or in APAC, while customers based in the region will experience enhanced on-the-ground services.
“As businesses and talent become increasingly borderless, employers must be able to screen candidates on a global scale, whether hiring for local offices or the international market. Regional, in-country expertise and capabilities are vital, especially when navigating specific regulatory and cultural issues,” said Guy Abramo, Chief Executive Officer at HireRight. “By increasing the scale and scope of our commitment to the region, we will be in an even better position to support customers with the speed, visibility and accuracy they need as they grow their global workforces.”
J-Screen provides background screening and due diligence services in Japan and Korea and has established a robust network of public, private and proprietary information sources. Customers include financial institutions, multinational companies, professional service providers and government organizations.
PeopleCheck also provides background screening services across many industries including technology, construction, finance, telecommunications, recruitment, professional services, mining, and healthcare. Their end-to-end processes deliver fast, accurate and objective results, and prioritize customer service with strong industry and product experience.
“We’re delighted to welcome J-Screen and PeopleCheck to the HireRight family,” said Steve Girdler, HireRight’s Managing Director in EMEA and APAC. “As pre-eminent providers in their respective regions, we’re excited to leverage the value that their skilled and knowledgeable teams will add to our customers in APAC.”
