Performing background checks is one of the stages in the hiring process. Background checks are often slow and inaccurate. This leads to almost 2 in 5 employers losing candidates according to a Careerbuilder survey.
Also, poorly-run background checks provide candidates with a bad experience which can damage your company’s reputation: 56% of candidates think less of a company if they have a bad experience with its technology. A bad reputation and lack of trust increase the likelihood of talent avoiding you.
