HireRight’s Applicant Center 2.0 Receives Brandon Hall Group Excellence Award in Technology

This award recognizes technology innovators for providing users with a better overall experience

IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 6, 2018 – 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 that its Applicant Center 2.0 has been honored with a Gold Award in the Brandon Hall Group’s Excellence in Technology Awards for the Best Advance in Candidate Experience Management Technology.

The award recognizes HireRight’s innovation and leadership in providing a smooth, transparent candidate experience during the background screening process. HireRight’s Applicant Center 2.0 demystifies the background check process by allowing candidates to view the status of their background check as it happens, and helps to reduce unnecessary background check related communications between the employer and a candidate. This platform also provides an efficient way for candidates to instantly provide documentation necessary to complete their background check.

 “As a background screening company, we have always taken a candidate-centric approach to our service delivery,” said Jurgen Leijdekker, chief executive officer of HireRight. “Background screening is an important aspect of the hiring process and we understand the value in helping employers provide a positive candidate experience during a background check.”

“We strive to produce the most user-friendly and innovative technologies for employers,” said Ayman Shoukry, chief technology officer. “Research indicates that candidates value accessibility, transparency, and quick, honest answers to their questions. Our focus on the candidate experience is specifically designed to address these concerns.”

The Excellence Awards recognize organizations that have successfully deployed programs, strategies, modalities, processes, systems, and tools that have achieved measurable results. A panel of veteran, independent senior industry experts, along with Brandon Hall Group senior analysts and executives, evaluated the entries based upon the following criteria: product; unique differentiators; value proposition; and measurable results.

“Our technology award winners are truly outstanding and set a high bar for others,” said Mike Cooke, chief executive officer of Brandon Hall Group. “We have learned a great deal from what they have accomplished. The awards programs supplement our quantitative research in providing our team with unique insights to share with our members and clients.”

Recipients were honored at the Brandon Hall Group Human Capital Management Excellence Conference in Palm Beach Gardens Florida, which took place January 31 through February 2, 2018.
