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.

LinkedIn Talent

LinkedIn Talent is well suited for those who are looking to find candidates for their technical position and for sourcing in general. Every organization should use this platform as it makes a difference in recruiting efforts. Everyone has a Linkedin profile and it’s one of the best professional sites to reach out to candidates. I recommend that any organization use this.

  • Absolutely the best in sourcing high-level candidates that are both actively and passively searching for new job opportunities. The advanced search feature, and the ridiculous number of filters, really helps you identify the best talent that is perfectly suited to the positions you need to hire for.
  • Metrics! I rely almost exclusively on InMail for my recruiting efforts for higher level positions, and LinkedIn provides a number of key metrics to ensure I am optimizing my InMail messages. Notably, you can track the positive response rate of different templates, which really helps you hone in on what type of message works best for beginning the conversation with potential candidates.
  • Project organization. Typically, I work on 3 roles at a time. Often times while sourcing for my active reqs, I come across candidates that I think are really great, but just not a great fit for anything I am working on. Being able to save them to various projects based on skill set helps me to quickly find qualified candidates as soon as a new job order opens up.

Cons

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

  • Certain types of candidates get inundated with inmails so do not respond much.
  • There aren't diversity filters available
  • During the review candidate feature for hiring managers, there is no way of going back to the candidate after you've rated them.

I'm giving this a 6 only because in my 1 year at my current position we have had 3 different reps. The first was unresponsive and passive when attempting to help us. When she came out to do a demo on a new feature launch it was scattered and all over the place. The person we have now is great and is super helpful when ever we need him.

Alternatives Considered

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

LinkedIn is more expensive - and the other tools point to LinkedIn. Not sure how they all can work together. At this time, LI is the social media standard.

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.

  • This tool has increased out ability to close open positions faster through sourcing and passive candidate access
  • The quality of our hires has increased because we have less turnover and better initial 90-day performance reviews
