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.

Greenhouse

I think Greenhouse has the potential to be much more helpful for larger companies, since it is highly customizable. It can really make a difference in organizing recruiting efforts for a large company with various departments and multiple open positions at a time. For smaller companies where there may only be one or 2 openings at a time, the cost of the software may be a little too high to justify a good ROI, but if you are looking to scale, then this is the perfect tool to make sure that you are hiring the right candidates in a more timely manner.

  • This is a great collaboration tool. Makes it very easy for my manager to assign an interview to me and provide me with the interview kit that I need, share the candidate's resume and it is also very simple for me to submit feedback after the interview has taken place. I can also tag a coworker in my notes which is very useful for us because we do group interviews and this way I can simply tag my fellow interviewer on the notes to let our manager know that we are both in agreement regarding the candidate's feedback.
  • I love the Dashboard feature, has all of my upcoming interviews in one place. I can also refer someone for any open positions right there by clicking on add referral.
  • I can connect a job posting to my LinkedInn or create a link I can send to a possible applicant directly. Makes it easy to stay Organized and share any open positions with my connections on social media.

Cons

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

  • Once I submitted a Scorecard for a candidate after an interview, I had a hard time finding that scorecard again in order to make an edit. I would like to have an option to view scorecard written by me on my dashboard.
  • I wish the software's setup provided more of a structure to help small companies that may not have a fully cooked HR department yet with guidance and guidelines on how to conduct a thorough candidate review and a bias free interview. There are other HR/recruiting software out there that helps its customers by providing best practices in performance reviews and recruiting that are reflected in the tools design and functionality.
  • Great product but minimal support past sales and onboarding and the high cost can be a hard sell for small companies.

Alternatives Considered

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

I used Bamboo HR for a short period of time at a previous job but it did not fully integrate with other software they were using. The UI design was not great from what I remember (though it may have been improved since I last used it), but comparing what I worked with back then to Greenhouse, this software is much more user friendly and just looks and feels better

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.

  • Greenhouse has had a tremendously positive impact on my team and on the business as a whole. I now have metrics to measure my team’s effectiveness and performance.
  • Managers now have a system to use that’s incredibly useful, intuitive and it provides them with the ability to become more effective at hiring great people for their team.
  • Because the system has a lot of functionality and it’s user-friendly, my recruiters are really engaged. They are able to create efficiencies in their workflow which help them provide extraordinary service to their partners.
