Today’s job market is a competitive landscape, and prospective employees can be lost to tedious and long pre-employment screening processes. HR professionals know that to stay competitive, compliant and efficient, they need technologies that make new hire onboarding a painless process for both the HR professional and the applicant. Integrating your Applicant Tracking System (ATS) with your screening provider’s software can make the difference between securing the candidate and missing out on the perfect hire.
- Save Time
When filling open positions, timing is so critical that even a few extra minutes per hire can hinder productivity. Integrating background screening software with your ATS means that your HR team now has a single system for applicant information, making it easy to see where a candidate is in the hiring process. Screening orders can be placed with a single click, reducing clerical time and removing the need to re-enter data in a separate platform.
- Enhance Compliance and Accuracy
When working with sensitive private information, compliance with the law is key. Integrating your systems ensure that each step in the process is consistent and that all candidate information is kept private and entered accurately. To err is human, especially when it comes to data entry. An integrated system alleviates the likelihood for keying incorrect information and eliminates an abundance of paperwork for both HR and the applicant.
- Improve the Candidate Experience
The job market right now is extremely competitive, so the application experience needs to be as positive and efficient as possible to keep top candidates engaged. In recent studies, lengthy and redundant processes were cited as a top reason for a negative candidate experience. With an integration, data moves seamlessly and securely from their application to your background screening software, so your candidate will not have to reenter information that they have already provided.
Integration of systems is not only a win for efficiency, compliance and experience; employers and candidates become empowered to make the most out of the application and hiring process.
