Case studies: Report turnaround time
Number of employees: 3,500 full-time and 10,600 seasonal / Locations: 20+
Different recruiting systems across multiple locations created a cumbersome, time-consuming and labor-intensive background screening process. The company needed a more efficient, cost-effective system implemented within 30 days.
Verified Credentials’ candidate self-service order processing allowed the recruiters to have candidates enter their own information, sign forms, and order background checks online. The company is now available to focus on issues more critical than data entry.
This company experienced immediate results from Verified Credentials’ candidate self-service ordering process, including:
92% reduction in direct labor costs and time.
Savings of about $70,000 each year.
Estimated savings of 12 minutes per candidate.
Improved performance, measurability and user satisfaction.
Number of employees: Hundreds to thousands of seasonal staff / Locations: 10
Organizing large outdoor concerts and festivals across the Midwest, the production company faced staffing challenges for its many seasonal events. For each festival hundreds of temporary staff needed to be hired. In order to meet their insurance carrier’s requirements, the hiring staff needed to ensure no unqualified staff would be on any festival grounds. In addition, the client was required to provide updated documentation on demand that showed that staff does not have disqualifying criminal records. With their current process, internal HR staff was manually sorting through thousands of candidates to find infractions.
Verified Credentials generated a custom report summarizing all infractions and sorting them by severity, including a detailed breakdown of all related records in an exportable, easy-to-read format. This information allowed the hiring staff to quickly determine which candidates were qualified for employment and which individuals were instantly eliminated from consideration.
In addition to reducing the time needed for making hiring decisions by over 50 hours each season, the festival production company also was able to provide the summary report to their insurance carrier as proof, as requested, that background checks were performed.
Number of employees: 36,000 / Locations: 60 locations in 25 countries
The Fortune 500 contractor regularly hired international candidates for positions needed to fulfill government contracts in Iraq and Afghanistan for engineering, procurement, construction and maintenance services. When they were awarded contracts, the contractor needed to hire between 50 and 75 employees within a matter of days.
To help the contractor gain award of the contract, Verified proactively established a relationship with KBR, a global engineering, procurement and construction company with 57,000 employees worldwide. Verified established a standard method to verify employment credentials with KBR locations in Houston, Texas and Dubai for returning results in a timely manner.
The average turnaround for the majority of the 5,000 international employment verifications dropped from a two to six week period to between one and three days, a 93% reduction in turnaround time. This allowed the contractor to process a high number of candidates to fulfill and gain more government contracts.
