Eightfold AI and Checkr Team Up to Create an End-to-End Solution to Make Hiring More Efficient and Fair
SAN FRANCISCO AND MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., JULY 13, 2021—Eightfold AI, the provider of the Talent Intelligence Platform™, and Checkr, Inc., the leading technology company in the background check industry, announced today they are partnering to create a solution that helps employers hire based on qualifications, key attributes, skills, and traits—all in one single interface.
For the first time, recruiters who want deep data intelligence can source, assess, and initiate background screenings through one unified platform. The solution also helps to deliver a seamless candidate and recruiter experience while increasing hiring efficiency.
“Checkr and Eightfold AI have come together to optimize the entire HR funnel, delivering an exceptional talent management experience that combines AI-powered background checks with AI-powered talent intelligence,” said Checkr Chief Business Officer Marc Diouane. “Streamlining sourcing, placement, mobility, and talent re-discovery, this partnership equips recruiters with the tools and technology necessary to compete, grow, and win the talent marketplace.”
This joint solution enables recruiters to optimize the top and bottom of the talent funnel by uncovering hidden candidate pools with purpose-built talent data and analytics, which reduces hiring costs and time to fill jobs. In turn, this data helps companies increase candidate quality, conversion, and retention. In addition, the partnership also allows companies to build a more diverse workforce and reduce human bias with end-to-end Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) and fair chance hiring embedded into the platform.
“Hiring a diverse workforce is not only the right thing to do, it also expands your talent pipeline to the underrepresented candidate groups,” Eightfold AI President Kamal Ahluwalia said. “As as a Talent Intelligence Platform, it’s more important than ever to meet our customers where they are conducting their day-to-day workflow. Adding Checkr to Eightfold, not only optimizes full-funnel recruiting, but it also enhances the value of the investment that customers have made in the platform.”
This platform will support companies across industries in their hiring processes, especially those recruiting light industrial workers including retail, hospitality, business, and food service workers. Through this partnership, Eightfold AI and Checkr will deliver on their missions of promoting equity in hiring and creating fuller and fairer employment opportunities for all candidates.
