1. No Hassle Access for 100% of Small Businesses

ShareAble for Hires is the only online employment screening tool available for use by any legitimate small businesses in the United States. Unlike other screening services, there’s no waiting period or qualification process. If you own a small business, then you can run background checks on job applicants anywhere, any time.

With some other screening providers, a business might need to apply to be a customer which involves filling out an application and potentially having to speak with a salesperson before you can screen. Additionally, these solutions may prevent access to information because you have a “home-based business” or are late on taxes.

ShareAble doesn’t have that rigorous application process. It is designed to provide immediate access for all small businesses.

  • No paperwork required.
  • No review to determine your eligibility.
  • No calling in to verify your information.

As a result, you can make hiring decisions on the spot.

When you need to hire people now but want to base your decision on reliable information, you can’t wait around on traditional background checks that can take days or weeks to complete. While you wait, you go without the staff that is needed to run your business and job candidates go looking somewhere else for work.

The applicant consents to the screening, enters their personal information into the system, and TransUnion verifies their identity. Reports are delivered within minutes.

3. Transparent Process for Screener and Applicant

TransUnion believes in using information for good, and the ShareAble for Hires process ensures that by allowing people to control how their personal information is accessed and shared with employers.

Because your job applicant consents to participate in the ShareAble screening process, they become stewards of their own data. Not only does their “consent” to have their information shared result in only a soft-hit on their credit report, they also receive a copy of all the information that is sent to you.

This “consumer push” process increases the speed of pre-employment screening and enables the ability for important information and insights to be shared, building trust in the moment. Plus, the transparency achieved with ShareAble ensures that all applicants can safely and confidently share their personal information to land a new job.

4. Affordable, On-demand Screening

Traditional background checks normally cost hundreds of dollars, with set-up and subscription fees hidden in the fine print.
