As millions of Americans return to the workforce, the importance of partnering with a reliable background screening company is essential. We are committed to getting your business back up and running with our full range of mobile-friendly employment screening services to support social distancing. Read more for our top suggestions on how to make your post-quarantine hiring process as smooth as possible.
Get the word out
Make sure you have at least one digital platform to advertise your openings and update them regularly. If your business also has a website, post any current events or changes to your policies and procedures in response to COVID-19. It’s important to let people know that your business is still open, hiring, and moving forward during this time. Candidates will be more likely to reach out to companies that are active in their outreach efforts.
Lean on HR tools to manage communication and recruitment
Keep track of your applicants with systems designed to house updated contact information and to monitor the hiring process. Human Resources Information System (HRIS), sometimes known as Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS), will save you time and energy when your company is looking to fill multiple positions. At Alliance 2020, our state-of-the-art online screening platform can be integrated with any HRIS program. This allows you to place orders, monitor the status of a background check, and view the results al in one place.
Familiarize yourself with a video-chatting platform for interviews & virtual on-boarding
While still avoiding in-person interviews, using apps like Zoom, FaceTime, and Skype became a necessary alternative. Choose one that works for you and be sure to include the interview process in your job postings. That way, your candidates will know what to expect and can prepare accordingly. If you choose to onboard your employees virtually during this time, focus on making the experience feel welcoming and personal. Schedule video-chatting sessions to get to know them and introduce the rest of the team.
