Making Background Checks More Human

We’ve reinvented background checks to make them easier, faster, and more accurate. It doesn’t hurt that our customer service agents – the Goodies – are nicer, smarter, and better looking, too.

But as part of Inflection, a Certified B Corp, we have a unique commitment to candidates you won’t find anywhere else, bringing them into the process, so they feel empowered rather than judged.


B Labs recommends GoodHire to help meet their B Corp Inclusion Challenge.

We’re committed to promoting diversity and inclusion by eliminating the systemic inequality of traditional background checks.
