TransUnion Research: Characteristics of Small Business Employment Screeners

The right hiring decision can take your business to the next level, but not all businesses screen their job candidates in the same way. Small businesses need a pre-employment screening service that provides quick access to FCRA-compliant background reports, but traditional background search companies are a poor fit for these businesses because they typically require too much volume, take too long, require on-site credentialing and can be costly.

We’ve performed extensive market research to uncover how small businesses effectively screen their new employees. Throughout our research, two main pain points were discovered—small business owners needed to be able to screen candidates quickly, and they needed immediate access to reports.

From our research, four distinct groups of screeners emerged:

  1. Confident pioneers
  2. Dissatisfied DIY-ers
  3. Swamped skeptics
  4. Old-school hand-shakers

We used this data to create ShareAble for Hires, an effective, quick way for these screeners to run background checks on applicants. Learn more about these screeners and their characteristics in the infographic below:
