HireRight, a world leader in on-demand employment background checks, drug and health screening and electronic Form I-9 and E-Verify solutions, today announced the expansion of its market-leading integrated global screening platform to include 15 new languages, plus expanded talent management integrations. The new capabilities further enhance the candidate experience on a local level, around the world, and increase recruiter efficiency globally.
“Recruiting processes, rules, and cultural norms are dramatically different worldwide,” said Dan Shoemaker, vice president and general manager of international business, HireRight. “Since HireRight began offering global employment screening services more than ten years ago, we have emphasized the need to provide ‘localized screening on a global scale,’ to help support recruiters through the demands of local requirements and customs. Our new platform extensions further this focus by allowing a vast majority of the world’s population to apply for employment and receive messages and alerts in their native language, as well as by allowing recruiters to operate with minimal steps and maximum speed in their preferred talent management solution.”
The HireRight global platform has supported English, French and Spanish for many years but now includes 15 additional languages such as simplified Chinese, German and Portuguese, supporting seven of the 10 most spoken languages in the world1. Now, the entire screening experience can be in the language the candidate chooses, from email invitations, background check forms and other candidate interactions. Online applicant documents are also customized for individual countries to conform to local address and phone number formatting.
In addition to the extensive language support, HireRight has expanded its integrations with Oracle Taleo Enterprise Cloud Service and Kenexa so that whatever language the recruiter uses in their applicant tracking system, when they submit a background request, it will initiate an email to the candidate in that same language. While offering a centralized, fully integrated solution, HireRight screening is customized to each local market, including its cultural norms. This ongoing local support and communication enhances the experience for both the candidate and the recruiter, speeds the hiring process, and improves efficiency.
“Whether companies are hiring an employee with foreign education, employment or address history for the Denver office or a new employee in Delhi, they need the best candidates fast,” adds Shoemaker. “Too often, vital international screening steps are missed due to the need for fast onboarding of top talent. HireRight’s intuitive global technology platform provides localized support for recruiters to help avoid errors while also enhancing the employer’s image with the candidate by providing a comfortable and efficient screening experience. HireRight is continually working to enhance its background screening solution to facilitate recruiter and applicant access to information anywhere, at any time, on any device.”
HireRight’s global reach includes more than 1,600 screening services, covering more than 240 countries and territories, and now in 18 languages. The company supports its technology platform with in-country experience and expertise. Sales, account management, customer support and verifications teams provide coverage for Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia as well as North and South America. HireRight also provides multilingual operational support through the verifications team whose members speak 24 languages.
