Checkr + Freshteam: Providing HR Teams with an Intuitive Background Check Solution

Checkr Editorial

Growing HR teams have a lot on their plate—recruiting, hiring, onboarding, managing employee data, and more. Freshworks has made it easy for these teams to tackle everyday tasks with Freshteam, a modern all-in-one HR solution that saves time through automation and efficiency tools.

Today Checkr is excited to announce that we have teamed up with Freshteam to further their mission to make it fast and easy for businesses to delight their customers and employees. Checkr is excited to offer an affordable and intuitive background check solution for Freshteam customers. 

HR directors and managers usually manage existing employees and, in some cases, manage the recruitment process of future employees, especially in small or start-up-like businesses. Having an all-in-one platform like Freshteam that allows an HR employee to recruit, background check, and onboard the employee from one dashboard makes it easy to keep track of all aspects of the future employee’s data. 

“For growing organizations, robust background checks are critical to not only safeguard the organization but, more importantly, their employees and early culture. Ideally, a recruiter should be able to run a robust background check with as little effort as a mouse click without their core activities getting disrupted. Freshteam’s integration with Checkr brings to life this ideal scenario. Freshteam users can now deploy Checkr background checks without leaving their candidate view. We are excited to be partnering with Checkr to bring a truly seamless background check experience to our customers.”

Through the Checkr and Freshteam partnership, HR teams can now eliminate lag times between a candidate offer and a background check invitation. This timely communication flow ultimately improves the candidate experience. It gives organizations a competitive edge in today’s hiring market, where speed and timely communication often win a candidate over if they have multiple offers on the table. 

What growing HR teams can expect from the Checkr + Freshteam integration 

Freshteam customers who take advantage of the Freshteam and Checkr partnership can expect a smoother recruitment process and onboarding experience for future employees. Aspects of this partnership include: 

  • Affordable pricing: Checkr is a pay-as-you-go solution, so you only pay for what you need. There are no contracts, commitments, or setup fees, just affordable and transparent pricing starting at $25.
  • Easy-to-use: Manage the end-to-end background check process from where you already work in Freshteam, from ordering the check to monitoring its progress to reviewing the results. 
  • Fast and reliable: Checkr’s technology helps you hire quickly without sacrificing accuracy or compliance. 84% of reports are completed within 15 minutes, and 95% are completed within 24 hours.

By using Checkr inside of Freshteam, your HR team and future candidates can access background checks from where they already work, making it easier and faster to hire and onboard new employees. 

At Checkr, we believe both the candidate experience and the recruiter experience should be seamless and transparent. Using the Checkr integration within Freshteam reduces the number of tasks recruiters need to manage, and decreases candidate drop-off by eliminating delays between the candidate offer and the background check invitation. Customers using Freshteam and Checkr will be able to accurately predict candidate start dates, and effectively engage with candidates, ultimately creating a great experience for the candidate and the HR team.
