Candidate Screening FAQs

What is candidate screening?

What are pre-employment screening tools?

Why do I need candidate screening software?

What is candidate screening?​

When it comes to recruitment screening, the screening process is the procedure of filtering out applications for a role by conducting specific checks. Screening is an important part of the hiring process removing unqualified or irrelevant candidates, scanning particular documents to prove the identity of a candidate and adhering to government legislations.

What are pre-employment screening tools?

Pre & Post Employment Screening tools are relevant for all sectors and effectively act as a Vetting CRM automating the process for screening; saving vast amounts of admin and resource cost and time. 

Why do I need candidate screening software?

The recruitment market has not only become increasingly competitive, but also heavily regulated as government legislation continues to change. With new laws, increased data regulations and a tightening of online security, businesses need to work hard to ensure they’re staying compliant and ahead of the game.

In addition, they’re striving to adapt to new ways of working demanded by today’s changing workforce, all while ensuring their screening policies are keeping them compliant and protected.
