(April 21, 2016) HireRight, a leading provider of global employment verifications and drug and health testing, today announced that HireRight Applicant Center was named a finalist for the 2016 SIIA CODiE Awards in the Best Human Capital/Talent Management Solution category. The solution was recognized for its focus on delivering a positive candidate experience during background verification, while also creating a more efficient process for employers to speed time-to-hire.

The awards offer 91 categories that are organized by industry focus of education and business technology. Winners will be announced on May 18.

It’s increasingly important for businesses to create hiring processes that balance screening for quality hires while catering the experience to in-demand candidates in this highly competitive talent market. HireRight Applicant Center addresses these challenges as the industry’s only background check portal designed for natively mobile job seekers and to enhance the candidate experience and the employer brand. Many candidates feel apprehensive about background checks because it seems like a mysterious behind-the-scenes process of which they have no control. Additionally, employers are under pressure to recruit top talent fast, or risk losing the candidate to another employer. Applicant Center addresses these concerns by demystifying background checks that allow candidates to oversee the process from any device, while reducing workflow for employers to speed hiring.

“With workforce composition and workers’ backgrounds becoming increasingly more global and complex, HireRight understands that providing a transparent, positive experience to candidates while maintaining a thorough and effective background verification process is more important than ever,” said John Fennelly, chief executive officer, HireRight. “We’re thrilled to see that HireRight Applicant Center has been recognized as a 2016 CODiE Award finalist, further underscoring our mission of helping people get hired.”
