The Elwood-Checkr Story 


Elwood Staffing serves the light industrial space with over 275 service locations across 30 states. Recently, there’s been an uptick in managed service providers, coupled with a tightening labor market. This has put Elwood in a tight race to grow their talent pool and get qualified candidates submitted quickly. 

Before Checkr, Elwood used a batch ordering process for background checks. Manual entry was required, and recruiters often waited several days for results. Now, with Erecruit integrated with Checkr, background checks are submitted in real time and results are returned into their system, eliminating the need to check email for updates. 

In this race where speed to placement is crucial and where every second matters, Elwood relies on Checkr’s speed, accuracy, consistency, and reliability to win more placements. One of the ways Elwood increases speed is through efficiencies gained from a custom-built integration with their Erecruit. Elwood decided to partner with Checkr largely because Checkr was willing and able to build that integration and save Elwood from having to source a 3rd party.

Elwood considers Checkr a true partner who is invested in helping solve their client’s challenges. Checkr has provided content-rich training modules to get employees onboarded quickly and efficiently. Checkr’s commitment to continuously increase speed and reduce friction in the application and onboarding process, all mean no surprises and better results for Elwood Staffing, their clients, and their growing candidate pool.
