6 months of fast check

Screening • Aug 16, 2023 9:30:00 AM • Written by: Georgia Reynolds

As the summer holidays have now come to an end and the holiday season fast approaches, many organisations that specialise in hiring a large number of seasonal workers have their busiest recruitment periods. These businesses experience a surge in demand during these peak periods and relatively quieter, more steady windows outside of their busy seasons.

This pattern is particularly noticeable in the aviation sector and in retail as the holiday season approaches. The pressure to scale up workforces quickly while ensuring the right people are hired can be overwhelming. To tackle this challenge effectively, businesses need to streamline their hiring processes and consider essential elements like background checks for seasonal workers.

"We couldn't ask for a better turnaround time when we've got queries or when our candidates have got queries as well. And it's a swift solution as well. So, it's not just the response time, but the solution provision is really good."


What is fast check?

Introducing fast check, our cutting-edge screening tool designed to revolutionise the screening process for faster and more efficient results, while maintaining accuracy. Powered by our trusted partner Konfir; fast check securely integrates with online banking apps to verify employment history, gaps, and undeclared employment without delays.

Workers have full control over their personal data, with access only granted with their consent. The system ensures one-time, single-purpose access for enhanced privacy.

Fast check offers flexible deployment options. It can seamlessly integrate into the screening process from day one, verifying candidate information right from the start. Alternatively, it can complement existing security screening practices by using data from reference requests to ensure compliance.

Fast check was created for three main reasons:

  • - Improving efficiency: By automating parts of the screening process, fast check significantly improves efficiency, saving time and resources needed for candidate verification.
  • - Enhancing candidate experience: fast check streamlines the candidate onboarding process, making verification quicker and easier while ensuring compliance.
  • - Addressing industry demands: The introduction of fast check was in response to the industry's evolving needs, emphasising the importance of speed, accuracy, and compliance in the screening process.

We collaborated closely with our customers to ensure clear communication about the benefits and reliability of this innovative screening solution, helping candidates embrace its advantages.

What has been the impact of fast check? 

The impact of fast check has been transformative, revolutionizing our screening process with enhanced efficiency, reduced turnaround times, and improved accuracy in candidate verification. This positive change was achieved through close collaboration with our customers and HR teams, redefining and striking the right balance in our processes.

Fast check significantly improved candidate onboarding, making verification quicker and easier while maintaining compliance. Candidates responded positively, appreciating the speed, convenience, and assurance provided, leading to higher satisfaction levels.

The connection rates were consistently high among different case study groups, influenced by factors such as the nature of work and the stage in the screening process.

We continuously refine our processes to address challenges and ensure optimal outcomes and customer & candidate satisfaction, maintaining a commitment to balancing speed with compliance.

5 star feedback!

Candidate feedback on fast check has been overwhelmingly positive. The tool's ease of adoption and positive candidate experience have left a strong impression. Many candidates have praised the fast turnaround time, with verifications completed within 2-3 minutes. One candidate even commented, "Far quicker and easier than I was expecting." Such feedback highlights the effectiveness and efficiency of fast check in delivering a seamless and satisfactory candidate experience.

Seasonal recruitment often involves hiring a large number of new staff within a short timeframe. This can place added pressure on HR departments and other teams responsible for talent acquisition. The influx of applications, interviews, and training can strain existing HR processes, prompting businesses to evaluate which parts of the onboarding process can be outsourced or whether additional HR staff are required to manage the influx of recruitment.
