Among some of the best hiring practices for the New Year, you should strive to automate your background check process. Having an automated background check process can greatly improve the efficiency, accuracy, and timeliness of your employee onboarding. It will also improve the productivity of your human resources staff by providing them with tools that streamline the background check process, thus saving time and money.

Here are a few things to look for in an automated background check process:

On Demand
The system should be available via the web and you should be able to access it 24/7. The ability to process orders and receive background checks online throughout the day is a vital component to an automated background check process.

Security is key. The system should provide a heightened level of security due to the sensitive nature of the information being transferred back and forth. Look for a system that supports secure transactions.

Streamlined and User-friendly
Each automated system will have its own way of doing things. The online process should be simple and effective. There should be no guesswork involved. The ordering and information retrieval platform should be easy to use and contain as few steps as possible.

Timely Results
Sometimes hiring decisions cannot be finalized until background check processes are complete. Therefore, look for a service that delivers results not only accurately, but also promptly.
