SmartRecruiters Welcomes Checkr to the Marketplace

Checkr and SmartRecruiters partner to meet the increasing demand for quality screening of employees, contractors, and tenants in a more seamless manner.

SAN FRANCISCO – January 14, 2020, 8:00 AM PST: SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company, wrapped up a phenomenal year with their final introduction into the customer marketplace for 2019: Checkr. Checkr, a San Francisco-based background check software company that allows businesses to conduct pre-employment background and drug screening at scale, was a partnership that was highly anticipated and user-requested. 

SmartRecruiters’ Fortune 500 clientele will be able to use Checkr’s services to automatically initiate background screening alongside an offer letter. This eliminates a major roadblock for companies, reducing paperwork and minimizing errors found within the traditional background check process.

“We are proud to announce our partnership with Checkr. ” says Carla Knoll, Vice President of Alliances at SmartRecruiters. “Talent Acquisition teams have many important functions – one of them being background checks. These teams need to know that all the boxes have been checked – and during the process, need this to happen quickly to deliver the best candidate experience possible. SmartRecruiters customers will really celebrate this addition to the marketplace.”

Checkr uses artificial intelligence and machine learning to make hiring more inclusive and more efficient. They deliver a great candidate experience by providing an applicant portal which allows applicants insight into the status of their reports, the ability to download a copy of the findings, and the option to talk to a support representative if there are any questions or concerns.

To learn more, Checkr will be attending Hiring Success in San Francisco – February 11-12, 2020.
