90% of Companies Buy Background Checks — But Many Get a Bad Deal

August 1, 2016 Amy McDonnell

Did you know? A whopping 90 percent of companies buy background checks to vet potential or current employees, according to SHRM research — but many of them aren’t exactly getting what they signed up for. That is, unless what they signed up for was poor customer service, slow turnaround time, and paper-heavy onboarding processes.

That’s where Aurico is vastly different — and it’s a big reason why CareerBuilder and Aurico joined forces in 2016. Aurico provides a quick turnaround time – and, while you would be hard-pressed to hear someone say they have a close, trusting relationship with their onboarding provider – Aurico’s clients actually do. There’s a reason Aurico is No. 1 in customer service and quality: They offer a paperless system that integrates with most applicant tracking systems, real-time reporting, incredibly fast turnaround times, and very competitive pricing.

Why is background and drug screening so important?

Drug screening is a requirement for certain roles. Conducting thorough and timely drug screens keeps both the public and a company’s workers safe, especially when screened workers are operating machinery or heavy equipment. As you are hiring candidates who represent you and act as an extension of your company, accurate and thorough background checks are vital. Oh, and the cost of replacing an experienced worker who doesn’t work out can cost 50 percent or more of that individual’s salary.

2016 marks Aurico’s 25th anniversary, and they have a lot to show for it: The company is now a trusted partner of 4,500 clients, No. 1-ranked in HRO Today’s Baker’s Dozen, and listed on the Workforce Hot List. Aurico participates on the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll, and has earned both NAPBS accreditation and ISO 9001:2008 certification.

Through Aurico’s delivery of detailed background checks, companies are better armed with the information they need to make a character judgment on a candidate. Learn more about what Aurico can do for your business.
