The Crisis Text Line-Checkr Story
As Crisis Text Line was growing rapidly, they needed a people trust solution that could grow with them. “Checkr has allowed us to grow in capacity,” says Elise Segars, Head of Admissions at Crisis Text Line. “We have a really high volume, and Checkr finds people we need to take a second look at, while others can move through the background check process quickly.
Crisis Text Line reviews 300 Crisis Counselor applications every week. After completing a detailed and rigorous application process, they wanted a streamlined and efficient background check for new counselors.
Specifically, Crisis Text Line needed a process that would help them take a closer look at applicants with issues they define as important, while getting others approved, into training, and helping vulnerable populations more quickly. One of the barriers to efficiency they faced was a system that flagged minor issues for review, holding up or even disqualifying desirable candidates.
Crisis Text Line now uses Checkr’s Adjudication Matrix to define the background records they want to review more closely, while allowing most others to clear the background check process in less than a day. The Checkr platform also collects and stores additional identification documents that applicants can easily upload themselves for fast identity resolution.
When a society is relying on your services, it is imperative to streamline as much of the process as possible. Instead of spending days screening hundreds of applicants, Crisis Text Line was able to cut that down to hours.
