How PrideStaff Leverages Bullhorn and Checkr to Speed Up Hiring

Checkr and Bullhorn Integration

Founded in 1978, PrideStaff is a national staffing agency focused on assisting a variety of businesses to hire all employee types. They’re consistently ranked in the top 1% of staffing companies and place over 30,000 employees each year.

The Challenge

After cycling through multiple account managers with their previous background check provider, PrideStaff started looking for a better option. As a faithful Bullhorn user for over fifteen years, PrideStaff was determined to find a solution that integrated with Bullhorn without painful implementation or ramp up that also provided a seamless experience for their customers. 

The Solution

Using recommendations from the American Staffing Association to populate their potential vendor list, PrideStaff started their search with over 35 candidates. Using a formal rating process for all potential vendors, PrideStaff looked at providers with a few key criteria: technological advances, turnaround time, report accuracy, and customer support. Checkr scored the highest in that process and was selected as PrideStaff’s newest background check provider.

The Results

Checkr was able to execute on five unique engineering fixes specific to PrideStaff within the first two weeks of onboarding. The implementation and integration of Checkr with Bullhorn for PrideStaff was smooth and eliminated most change management pain a company feels when swapping vendors. It quickly became clear that through Checkr’s API, technological flexibility, and pre-existing features, that Pridestaff would be able to eliminate manual data entry and provide a clearer view of candidates to users without sacrificing candidate experience or turnaround time. 

“The candidate experience has always been strong, smooth and quick especially for those that have access to a smartphone. It's a seamless experience.”
Sarah Hayden, Director of Risk Management, PrideStaff

When Checkr’s implementation was complete, automatic data transfer from one system to the other reduced time spent on manual entry and turnaround times were significantly reduced. According to Alyssa Baker: Risk Management Coordinator, “Having full transparency into report details, like whether it’s clear or consider, directly in Bullhorn has saved our team a lot of time.”

“Features like being able to write a notice into the candidate profile and pull data from other tabs within Bullhorn is very beneficial.”

With offices across the country, Checkr and Bullhorn together have supported PrideStaff as an end-to-end candidate system with a user-friendly candidate experience. 

The Future

Checkr and Bullhorn are now playing a part in helping PrideStaff continue their business growth objectives. Checkr’s geo-filtering helps with maintaining compliance in various jurisdictions and gives PrideStaff a competitive edge by turning around quickly even in those difficult jurisdictions. With Checkr and Bullhorn, Pridestaff’s national average is under two business days.

“Our offices love that the Checkr tab is integrated directly in Bullhorn.”
