We’re proud to announce that our background screening partner, Verified First, was named the winner at HRO Today’s 2018 iTalent competition. This prestigious competition showcases innovative HR technologies and took place on Tuesday, May 2, 2018 at the 2018 HRO Today Forum in Harbor, Maryland.
For the last seven years, the iTalent Competition has spotlighted top technology companies that develop innovative solutions in the HR industry. At this year’s event, Ryan Hart, Director of Product at Verified First, was among the finalists that gave presentations to the HRO Today Forum audience and iTalent judges. After assessing each pitch, they selected Verified First as the winner.
The judges were impressed by Verified First’s unique integration process. To create hiring efficiencies, background screening software integrates with Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS). The industry average is typically 4–6 weeks for full integration, but through a patent-pending process, Verified First accomplishes this in less than an hour. This rapid integration allows clients to maintain a steady talent pipeline without any system downtime.
Hart also demonstrated how Verified First creates a stronger candidate experience through branded emails and mobile solutions. Employers can improve the candidate response rate through sending branded emails that differentiate them. Additionally, employers may text candidates to obtain authorization for pre-employment screening. This feature not only provide greater convenience for the candidate, but also significantly improves time to hire.
The judges at HRO Today was quick to realize the value of Verified First’s offerings.
“In our tight labor market, it’s mission critical for HR Managers to have a streamlined and efficient hiring process. A long, drawn out process will drive away talent and hurt the bottom line for employers. Verified First’s ability to improve both turnaround time and the candidate experience is a game changer,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise & HRO Today.
