Jobvite and HireRight join forces to offer integrated solution

Strategic relationship will help Jobvite customers fill positions more quickly and enhance job-seeker, recruiter experience


BURLINGAME, CA and IRVINE, CA., -- Jan 21, 2014 - Jobvite,a leading recruitment platform for the social web, announced the availability of a pre-integrated solution with HireRight, a leader in on-demand background checks, drug and health screening, and employment eligibility verification programs. The integrated solution will help employers fill positions more quickly through social sourcing, reduce time-to-hire, and help improve the quality of hire, while improving the candidate and recruiter experience. These benefits will enable recruiters to combat the increasing challenge of finding and retaining top talent.

"Having HireRight integrated into Jobvite is a tremendous benefit that saves us time and administration," said Robyn Sater, technical recruiter, OpenDNS, a provider of cloud-delivered Web security services. "In today's highly competitive market for engineers, we have to manage large volumes of applicants every day. There are many steps to take for each candidate in the hiring process, to make sure they have passed their background checks and to ensure we haven't missed any critical steps."

The pre-integrated solution simplifies the recruiting process by allowing Jobvite users to order and manage their background checks and drug tests within the Jobvite Hire Application. The solution features single sign-on, and will enable a background check or drug test order within just a few clicks. Candidate information from Jobvite pre-populates the background check request, eliminating duplicate data entry, the potential for human errors, and saves organizations time and administration. The HireRight Applicant Center improves the candidate experience, giving them access to manage their own background screening process. The system provides visibility into background checks and allows candidates to submit documents and information, respond to alerts, questions and requests for additional data, view status updates, and interact directly with HireRight for support through live chat.

"The talent pool is shrinking globally and recruiters must act quickly and effectively to attract and engage top talent," said Jobvite VP of Business Development Skip Hilton. "At Jobvite, we want to arm recruiters with advanced but easy-to-use tools to help them win the war for talent, and our teaming with HireRight aligns with that mission. Employment screening is critical for organizations to ensure safe and high quality candidates. This new advanced solution will allow them to improve their hiring process and speed up their time-to-hire."

"According to Aberdeen Group, using an integrated, automated talent management solution increases quality of hire by up to 10 percent, while reducing time-to-hire and cost-of-hire,*" said Mary O'Loughlin, senior director of strategic alliances, HireRight. "We are thrilled to be working with Jobvite to provide their users with a hiring solution that provides a single management dashboard for all candidate and employment information, that helps them streamline the screening processes and more effectively manage their screening programs."

The pre-integrated solution leverages the Jobvite SaaS platform and HireRight Connect API, making the combined application robust and scalable. It enables configurable account and package setup and flexible order management.
