  • Talent Acquisition (sourcing, matching, candidate experience, assessments, onboarding, and other relevant technologies) 

“In a world of talent scarcity, employers need to know that their hiring decisions won’t be delayed unnecessarily, potentially costing them a valuable candidate.

This is what a modern background check should look like.”
