For most industries, hiring only impacts two key groups: the organization and the candidates. Staffing, however, adds in a third key group: the clients.
Once you throw clients into the mix, everything becomes magnified. Each of your pain points becomes more, because an issue with any one of them doesn’t just mean you don’t hire the right candidate – a big enough problem in and of itself – it also means you don’t get paid.
Like no other industry, staffing has to ensure fast turnaround times, easy compliance and high quality, all while contending with a tight labor market. It’s a tall order, but one that GIS can easily fulfill.
Candidate experience is the hot topic right now, but it goes so much further than just ensuring that the candidate has a pleasant recruiting experience. If you want the best for your clients, and if you want the best up and running quickly, you really need to minimize the burdens on the applicant throughout the entire hiring process. Each inefficiency within the process, from recruiting to onboarding, is just another opportunity to lose your best candidates.
By integrating with your chosen HRIS, GIS can simplify the background screening process. We can take whatever information the HRIS provides to us to initiate the background check, and ask your applicants to just (electronically!) fill in the gaps using our Applicant Entry Portal.
We know that time is of the essence. On average, the final report is delivered to you within 48 hours, with some searches ready instantly. What’s more, by using tools like our Applicant Entry Portal, we get required information from the applicant much quicker, meaning that we can initiate the check earlier and get it done earlier (which could also mean that you get paid earlier).
Every hiring process is rife with forms that must be completed – from the authorization and disclosure for the background check to the Form I-9 for onboarding. GIS provides electronic services for all of these forms, which eases the burden on the applicant and makes them more likely to complete the paperwork.
As with anything else, compliance is just more complex within the staffing industry, simply because you have to consider each clients’ unique regulations. Luckily, GIS considers it our responsibility to help you understand the screening regulations that may apply to you, and to help you fulfill those regulations – and we take this responsibility seriously. Not only do we actively search for and report on a broad range of compliance issues, we issue frequent compliance alerts that help you understand how any changes impact you. Most importantly, we offer a full complement of compliance services.
We make it easy for you to fulfill all your FCRA and state requirements, offering compliant electronic Authorization & Disclosure solutions, as well as a full Adverse Action program, complete with Individualized Assessment. We further provide forms and guides to help you maintain compliance with hiring Guidances, like the EEOC’s.
