Contractors automate their hiring practices with practices with combined ATS and background check services partnership

DES MOINES, Iowa – August 20, 2015 – BirdDogHR and eVerifile today announced a strategic partnership that will provide eVerifile’s clients access to BirdDogHR’s recruitment and applicant tracking system (ATS). This partnership will enable customers to attract and recruit top talent, effectively manage the interview process, and build a complete candidate profile.

Headquartered in Des Moines, BirdDogHR™ is the leader in talent management solutions for federal contractors.

eVerifile specializes in mitigating workforce risk with contractor and pre-employment screening. In 2005 eVerifile founded eRailSafe, a Contractor Screening program for Class I Railroads in the U.S. and Canada that improves the safety and security of all railroad contractors, employees, facilities, and operations. Today, eRailSafe continues to manage and administer eRailSafe—the Class 1 Railroad industry standard for contractor safety, railroad background checks, and security management.

As part of this partnership with BirdDogHR, eRailSafe contractors will benefit from robust job distribution, streamlined candidate management, and compliance reporting features offered by the BirdDogHR ATS. In addition, eRailSafe contractors can directly order background checks within the integrated systems, allowing eRailSafe customers a centralized location to manage the entire pre-hire experience.

“As an integral partner to thousands of Railroad contractor companies in the U.S. and Canada, we are always looking for ways to help contractors streamline and automate their employee onboarding processes so they can fulfill their railroad contracts,” said Ashok Vairavan, Vice President of Business Development at eVerifile. “We have identified BirdDogHR as a partner that can help railroad contractors manage and track the onboarding of their employees more effectively.”

“This partnership enables railroad contractors to mitigate risk in their hiring process,” said Todd Skokan, President and CEO at BirdDogHR. “eRailSafe is required for companies working with railroads. As an ATS built with contractors in mind, it is a natural fit to partner with eVerifile.”
