Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

Eightfold

Looking at Eightfold from a holistic approach, it is an essential tool for a fast growing company (ideally Mid-Market to Enterprise) to utilize this technology. By having access and the ability to search for previous applicants or candidates through our pre-existing pool, is a game-changer. As a company continues to grow, one will need to think of different avenues to find your next batch of employees - why not start with a group that has already engaged with your brand in the past.

Cons

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.

  • They could improve with integration across all features within ATS, CRMs, etc. Whenever you send out messages through Eightfold, it does not show that in other CRMs, ATS' - it pulls information from them but it does not export it back to those channels.
  • Calibration on candidate skills, profiles, education, etc. need improvement. They still pull current employees at our company and others who are in process - thus creating a lot of confusion from a Talent Acquisition side.
  • User Experience does need some additional help - but it's a work in progress.

Alternatives Considered

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

We elevated both Eightfold and Entelo on the premise of looking into our past applicants/candidates and how they would help us achieve our hiring goals. They both have a great reputation and what they can do to help solve your hiring needs, but we essentially went with Eightfold because of their ability to hit our needs. Entelo was focused on utilizing their entire platform (similar to LinkedIn's strategy) on having a network. Eightfold works well by re-engaging with our current and past applicants versus going into the entire market pool.

Return on Investment

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • One positive impact is re-engaging with past applicants.
  • Creating a better candidate experience by utilizing our company brand.
  • If you can look at hiring more than 10% of your workforce through this, it'll be worth the cost.
