OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – YRC Worldwide has announced it will be using Taleo Verify for pre-employment searches of public and private information, as well as ongoing scans for new criminal infractions that raise red flags.
With 70,000 global employees, cost-effective, accurate and timely background checks are an integral component to a comprehensive corporate security strategy, according to YRC officials.
“We plan to conduct nearly 20,000 background checks this year alone,” said Mike Hofer, HR project manager, YRC Worldwide. “With this level of volume, we need a solution with scope and speed from a provider who passes the cost-savings generated by efficiencies to customers.”
Taleo Verify is completely integrated with Taleo Enterprise, which company officials say will enable YRC to hardwire background checks into the employee lifecycle. Taleo taps Verified Person’s database and expansive court runner network to deliver turnaround times which officials say are, “40 per cent faster than the industry average, drive down costs and increase accuracy, specifically reducing frustrating false positives and negatives that breed negligence lawsuits.”
“Interesting times call for innovative solutions,” said Tal Moise, CEO of Verified Person. “With Taleo Verify, YRC executives can rest assured they are using the latest employee screening tools available in the marketplace today to mitigate risk.”
