Jul 16, 2013, 08:00 ET from GoodHire

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- GoodHire, a rapidly growing pre-employment background reporting platform finalized a partnership with ZipRecruiter, a leading job distribution service. GoodHire's web-based self-service model allows companies to conduct legally compliant employment background checks without the hassle of speaking to salespeople or soliciting Requests For Proposals (RFP). GoodHire is the first and only FCRA-compliant background checking service to be offered to all ZipRecruiter clients.


GoodHire's platform for pre-employment background checks is ideal for small-to-medium sized businesses but is also scalable for larger organizations. GoodHire was built with the needs of small business owners and hiring managers in mind. Although hiring employees while abiding by local and federal employment laws can be overwhelming, GoodHire helps streamline this process with straightforward tools and advice needed to make the process easier. GoodHire's focus on speed allows customers to create an account and start ordering reports right away while their business information is verified. Customers are updated in real-time as reports are completed so they can make decisions quickly and secure the best talent. GoodHire's partnership with employment law firm Fusion Legal allows customers to receive free, basic legal advice from an experienced employment lawyer. 

Max Wesman, GoodHire's Director of Product, said "We're very excited to partner with ZipRecruiter and give their customers the opportunity to background check their candidates using GoodHire. ZipRecruiter shares our goal of supporting a smooth and pain-free hiring process for our users."

GoodHire's integration with ZipRecruiter creates a holistic ecosystem for hiring. Companies can now manage their entire recruiting procedure seamlessly, from posting job descriptions to conducting due diligence before making hires. The partnership not only increases efficiency, but also usability: hiring managers can source, vet, and hire new talent without having to leave their offices (or open a second web browser, for that matter). After signing up for ZipRecruiter, HR Managers and Recruiters can post jobs to over 40 job boards with one submission and manage candidates in a single location.  They can then validate their hiring decision with comprehensive pre-employment background reports that include identity, education, and employment history verifications.

Ken Walker, ZipRecruiter's Head of Product, said "ZipRecruiter makes it easy to post jobs and find great candidates. Now we're excited to offer background checks for that final step in the hiring process." After signing into their ZipRecruiter accounts, users can find a Background Check section on the dashboard for all their candidates. Right now, all ZipRecruiter users will receive their first GoodHire background report for free.
