CareerBuilder Expands Into Background Screening

March 2, 2016 Amy McDonnell

On the heels of launching a series of exciting new software-as-a-service recruitment solutions, CareerBuilder is further expanding its product line to cover another critical step in the hiring process: background screening. To do this, the company has acquired Aurico, a leading provider of background screening and drug testing that serves U.S. and international clients.

Aurico’s resume is impressive when it comes to background screening and testing: Over the last 25 years, the company has delivered comprehensive background investigation products, including:

  • Identity and credit checks.
  • Criminal and civil records.
  • Employment, education and license verification and driver’s history.


Aurico, recognized as the leader in customer satisfaction for screening providers by HRO Today, has also built an extensive paperless, drug and health network to quickly deliver accurate, in-depth reporting on potential employees.

Aurico’s solutions, focused on enhancing efficiencies in the onboarding process–while still providing a good candidate experience–help companies meet federal and state compliance standards and feel more confident about their hiring choices.

CareerBuilder CEO Matt Ferguson is excited about what this acquisition means for our clients moving forward:

Background screening is an essential part of recruitment, and a natural extension of CareerBuilder’s product line. Aurico has differentiated itself in the market with great customer service and leading-edge technology that we can easily integrate into our software solutions. Working together, we can move people along the hiring process faster and with greater convenience for both employers and candidates.”

Aurico CEO is enthusiastic about the move as well:

CareerBuilder is a well-known, trusted, global technology leader that shares our passion for innovation and customer service. Becoming a part of the CareerBuilder family will enable us to quickly scale our business and bring new options to our clients. None of Aurico’s competitors will be able to match our combined solutions.”

Aurico’s secure, automated screening solutions are configurable and can integrate with CareerBuilder’s pre-hire platform or a client’s existing applicant tracking system or human resource information system. They can also be purchased as stand-alone products.
