Under new guidance issued by the New York City Human Rights Commission, criminal background checks must now be the very last step in the hiring process.
We know you track time-to-hire closely. It’s often the most important key performance indicator (KPI) for HR teams, both large and small. As such, you’re taking steps to streamline your processes to reduce time-to-hire wherever possible, including implementing HR tech that helps you automate processes and reduce manual workflows, and using data to track your progress and identify roadblocks. Essentially, your goal is to be more efficient with your resources.
We get it. At GoodHire, we frequently hear from prospective customers that one of the biggest challenges to hiring faster, and improving their time-to-hire metric, is the background check step.
If your screening provider is messing with your metrics—causing delays in your hiring process due to outdated technology, slow turnaround times, or poor customer service—you’re probably frustrated and ready to try something new.
You’re not alone.
Nearly 15,000 new organizations tried GoodHire last year, and 95% of customers would recommend us, according to a 2020 TechValidate survey.
