94% of HR professionals believe that the right applicant tracking system (ATS) can help them make the hiring process more efficient.

… and when you integrate background checks into these systems, the hiring process becomes even smoother.

Having resumes, candidate information and background screening details in one platform can not only minimize errors but also help you make hiring decisions faster.

So, if you haven’t looked into integrating background checks into your ATS, here are some of the reasons why you should:

  • Speeds up the recruitment process
  • Reduces errors
  • Helps with analytics and measurement

When background checks are integrated with your ATS, you can receive updates in real-time. This means that as soon as background checks are completed, the reports are made available to you.

So, you don’t have to spend time using another interface or downloading and uploading the documents. This helps save valuable time and allows you to fast-track the hiring process.

Additionally, when your background checks are integrated with your ATS, the information your applicants have provided can be used to pre-populate some of the data fields required for starting a background check. Again, this means that you don’t have to spend time manually entering data that is already there.

When your documentation process is more streamlined and data entry is reduced, there are fewer chances of human error and duplications.

Additionally, integrating your background screening into your ATS can also enhance compliance with the labour and employment laws of the state. How? Well having all the information in ‘one’ single, secure location means that you have to worry about fewer regulatory requirements for handling personal information.

When all your information is saved in one location, it is easier to run analytics and gauge the success of your recruitment initiatives. You can get an end-to-end view of the hiring process which is clearer and more transparent.

Once background checks are completed and the information is added to the candidate profile, you can easily see the results and create reports that can help brief your team members on the timelines, candidate snapshots, and more.
