Growing demand for services in the Middle East drives growth for background verification firm
IRVINE, Calif., July 13, 2016 – HireRight, a leading provider of global background verifications and services, today announced the next step in its continued global expansion with the opening of a new office in Dubai. The new regional hub will enable HireRight to better serve its global customer base while also satisfying the demand for global background verification products in the expanding Middle Eastern market.
“Our new Dubai location extends HireRight’s capacity to service our expanding multi-national client base in the Middle East and North Africa as our global growth trajectory continues to accelerate,” said John Fennelly, chief executive officer, HireRight. “Establishing a hub in this expanding market fills a need for our large financial services and energy related customers while giving us the ability to enter a growing regional market that has been under served.”
As the workforce becomes more geographically mobile and diverse, employers are under increasing pressure to establish policies and procedures to verify candidate history and experience, especially as immigration and global recruitment grows.
