How a stand-out candidate experience helps you hire

If candidates feel left in the dark by the background check process, or if it takes too long, they are more likely to drop out of your hiring pool. Checkr’s platform uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to deliver more accurate and more compliant reporting to speed background check delivery times.

Live support staff and visibility into background check status in the portal keep candidates engaged and in the loop. This helps improve conversion and cut down on candidate support requests, saving your hiring team’s time and resources.
