Pre-employment screening & eligibility verification platform

About HireRight

HireRight is a background screening platform, which enables organizations to perform employment data verification such as criminal record and health checks before recruiting candidates. HR professionals can gain insights into the latest hiring trends and opportunities, create job baselines, and define best practices.

HireRight conducts global searches across multiple public media sources and ID documents while adhering to local regulatory and compliance standards. Employers can use the dashboard to identify, view, and analyze the progress of the ongoing screening process through charts and graphs. Recruiters can also determine background check volume, turnaround time, criminal hit rates, and more using the key performance indicators (KPIs). It facilitates businesses in selecting candidates by monitoring the applicant’s behavior and information available publicly on social media.

HireRight offers integration with various third-party applicant tracking systems (ATS), including Workday, ADP VirtualEdge, Jobvite, PageUp, and Oracle. Candidates can use personalized portals to communicate with the hiring company, request for live help, receive email alerts for the requirement of documentation or signatures, and access resources or FAQs.

We send employees into client's homes, so we wanted to ensure that we are only hiring the best people. Having a clear background check provides reassurance for our clients and other employees.


The system interfaces with our payroll and ATS systems, so we can easily complete the hiring process without delay. You can create customized packages - or use a standard one - depending on your hiring needs. The results come back quickly and accurately.


There are no concerns with this product. The interface is easy to use and the results are easy to find.

Seamless Integration with Our ATS

Overall, I have had a great experience with HireRight so far. I love that I can be CCed on emails that go out to new hires to verify that they have received the initial email from HireRight to start the background check process.


We use HireRight for our background checks and I like it a lot so far. When I first started using it, we had a really detailed call with the HireRight team and they were really good about making sure we knew how to use all aspects of the software. We recently shifted the entire onboarding process to Jobvite and Hireright had a seamless integration with it! It's very user- friendly and starting the background check process can be accomplished in a few clicks. I also like that HireRight emails you when there are issues with the report or when the researcher needs to gather more information.


I think HireRight is pretty user friendly but I would like the option to add the most frequently used package to the top of the drop down list. We always use the same one and I find searching through the menu to be quite manual.
