They’re consistently ranked in the top 1% of staffing companies and place over 30,000 employees each year.

The Challenge

After cycling through multiple account managers with their previous background check provider, PrideStaff started looking for a better option. As a faithful Bullhorn user for over fifteen years, PrideStaff was determined to find a solution that integrated with Bullhorn without painful implementation or ramp up that also provided a seamless experience for their customers.

The Solution

Using recommendations from the American Staffing Association to populate their potential vendor list, PrideStaff started their search with over 35 candidates. Using a formal rating process for all potential vendors, PrideStaff looked at providers with a few key criteria: technological advances, turnaround time, report accuracy, and customer support. Checkr scored the highest in that process and was selected as PrideStaff’s newest background check provider.

The candidate experience has always been strong, smooth and quick especially for those that have access to a smartphone. It’s a seamless experience.

Checkr was able to execute on five unique engineering fixes specific to PrideStaff within the first two weeks of onboarding. The implementation and integration of Checkr with Bullhorn for PrideStaff was smooth and eliminated most change management pain a company feels when swapping vendors. It quickly became clear that through Checkr’s API, technological flexibility, and pre-existing features, PrideStaff would be able to eliminate manual data entry and provide a clearer view of candidates to users without sacrificing candidate experience or turnaround time.

The Future

Checkr and Bullhorn are now playing a part in helping PrideStaff continue their business growth objectives. Checkr’s geo-filtering helps with maintaining compliance in various jurisdictions and gives PrideStaff a competitive edge by turning background checks around quickly even in those difficult jurisdictions.
