The new portal will allow candidates to quickly and easily complete their background checks on any device
IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–October 3, 2016–
A leader in the employment background check industry, Accurate Background, has announced the release of their new Candidate Portal. The new portal will be accessible to all candidates having their background check processed by Accurate Background. The improvements will include a new sleek interface with a mobile responsive design, e-signature functionality, real-time background check status updates and an auditable electronic communication process allowing for built-in compliance. Benefits of the new portal include faster employee onboarding times, reduced litigation risk, improved candidate communication and an overall positive background check experience.
According to a recent recruiter sentiment survey, power has shifted from the employer to the candidate in today’s labor market. Employers are focusing more on the candidate’s experience which is critical throughout the hiring process or they risk losing good candidates. Because of this change, it is more important than ever for companies to adapt their process to the new pool of young talent.
As new generations have become more mobile reliant, it has driven the need for candidates to complete their background checks on the go. According to comScore, mobile now represents 2 out of 3 digital media minutes. Many candidates perform job searches and the hiring process from their mobile device and it is important that candidates can also complete their background check process in the same fashion. This new Candidate Portal allows for the entire background process to be performed from any mobile device, allowing many candidates to avoid a manual paper or computer reliant process.
Along with the candidate experience, compliance remains a top priority for employers as the number of class action lawsuits related to the background check process have steadily increased. The new Accurate Background Candidate Portal allows for a streamlined, automated and customizable communication workflow related to legal disclosures and notices. Accurate Background Chief Compliance Officer, Bon Idziak, commented, “Transforming traditional paper and email communications to an auditable electronic communication process would not only improve deliverability but also help reduce compliance risk for employers.”
“Candidate experience and compliance will continue to be top-of-mind for hiring companies,” added Maria Kirgan, VP of Product Management at Accurate Background. “Our positive background check experience in the new Candidate Portal will provide an advantage to our clients’ talent acquisition strategies. The built-in compliance will also give them peace of mind knowing they have a compliant candidate communication process in place. We look forward to helping our clients in both of these areas.”
Accurate Background will be giving a sneak peek of the new Candidate Portal at the upcoming HR Technology Conference in Chicago on October 4th – October 7th at booth #2809.
