After ranking the applicants as per the eligibility match we further review the short-listed candidates and ensure highly informed recruiting and hiring decisions.

Our assessment technique also helps to identify the strengths of a potential candidate, thereby analyzing their true nature and the willingness to grow with the organization.

This helps to forge a sense of trust and create a bond between an employer and its employee right at the beginning, thus paving the road to effective service and retention.
Professional background checks:
The process of talent acquisition that involves assessing, sourcing and selection would be deemed incomplete and prove costly for an organization, without an exhaustive background verification. It is crucial to validate and corroborate all the information provided by a potential candidate to ensure a correct hiring process. Here are some of the ways, in which background check can ensure an effective talent acquisition:
Often applicants lie in their resume to create an attractive profile in alignment with the requirements of a potential employer. Establishing the veracity of this information can help in the process of sourcing the right talent.
Reduces cost of attrition:
A bad hire, could prove to be costly, and time consuming, not to mention the operational risks that it brings along. The cycle of attrition and re-hire is an expensive one and could also damage the reputation of your company as that of a trustworthy employer. Background screening ensures the reduction in attrition rate, as well as improves the quality of hires by making informed decisions through the analysis of various factors.
Reduces workplace risk:
The selection of a candidate with a clean record ensures a conducive environment at the workplace. Thus background screening is an important factor that brings out the detrimental flaws of a candidate profile thereby reducing the risk of workplace chaos.
Upholds reputation of the company:
The recruitment of the right employee automatically helps to enhance the workplace environment. The skills and qualities of such a candidate can only help to ensure better performance, thereby adding to the positive reputation of the organization.
Despite the importance of the background verification process, one must remember to act with caution. There are limits to the probing into an individual’s limit and unnecessary discriminatory decisions may lead to a legal battle. At Crossmind, we understand the need to respect the privacy of each applicant. Our professional screening process is exhaustive and yet, non-intrusive, thereby building an effective talent acquisition model.
