Investing time and effort into hiring a new employee is essential. Recruiters are constantly revisiting and revising their hiring strategies, looking for better sourcing channels, more stringent assessments, and automated workflows that ensure candidate engagement. However, despite all this effort, very little thought actually goes into candidate screening.
Why background checks are important
The truth is that bad hires cost you time, money, and effort. Running background checks on candidates helps you maintain safe, compliant, and inclusive hiring practices. Therefore, screening candidates is a necessary evil. The good news is that if you’re thinking about making an offer, Zoho Recruit’s Checkr integration makes running background checks fast and easy.
