Add-on solutions, such as an applicant tracking system, can help make background checking less time-consuming and easier to manage. The top five reasons employers should consider getting an ATS are 1. With 66 percent of large companies and 98 percent of Fortune 500 companies already augmenting background check solutions with products like applicant tracking systems, competitors are already ahead of the game; 2. The pool of qualified applicants is increased; 3. Most ATSs can be customized and configured based on the company’s needs; 4. Most ATSs are integrated with job boards, career sites, and social media; and 5. ATSs improve a company’s image.
