Earlier this week, we had the great pleasure of hosting a webinar on the benefits of integrating your employment background screening program with your talent management or applicant tracking system. The webinar, “Get Your HR Nerd On: Background Checks Through Platform Integration” was hosted by myself, James Thomas from Talent Technology and the clear star of the show, Susan Strayer LaMotte from Exaqueo. Susan’s worked inside and consulted for some of the most renowned global brands including The Ritz-Carlton, The Home Depot, Marriott International and Arthur Andersen. More importantly, she’s recognized for the results of her work. In 2011 she was named a top 100 influencer in HR and a top 100 HR/Recruiting Industry pro.
Susan shared her experiences and espoused the benefits of taking a manual process and streamlining it through automation: primarily how it saves time and money, improves the candidate experience and allows HR to be more strategic. I offered suggestions on how to take an automated process and make it more friendly for the candidate. And James, discussed the power of integration through one hub and shared a demo on how the process looks for the recruiter and for the candidate.
We recorded the session and I invite you to download it here. And don’t worry, I promise there was no techno speak or explanation for how to actually connect the system. Just some real world advice HR professionals can use in making a case for system automation. Enjoy.
