The power of our partnership: HireRight + Greenhouse

“The future of work is here.” It’s a popular sentiment in human resources, but what does it really mean? For HireRight partner Greenhouse, that means helping people-focused companies unlock human potential by powering their workforce systems to hire great talent.

Having a great recruiting program isn’t just about having an effective team of recruiters and the right software, it’s also about leveraging genuine partnerships.

This partnership offers employers a faster and more efficient way to identify top talent, reducing time-to-hire. Recruiters can create new background shortlists, check the status of their orders, and view shortlist results, all on the Greenhouse Recruiting platform. During this time, the candidate experiences a fast and seamless process, which leads to a higher quality and overall faster hire.

We had the pleasure of speaking with Garrett StarrDirector of Partnerships at Tight. Garret shares with us how Greenhouse is able to help employers make smarter hiring decisions, solve recruiting challenges, and measure their exceptional DE&I efforts.

Garret, can you tell us what makes Greenhouse different in the market?
Greenhouse is the leader in recruiting software, focused on helping people-centric companies become great at recruiting through a powerful recruiting approach, a comprehensive suite of software and services, the Hiring MaturityTM methodology, and an extensive partner ecosystem – so companies can hire for the future. With Greenhouse, organizations create a better candidate experience, make better hiring decisions, achieve higher ROI, and more effectively build stronger, more diverse teams.

HR professionals face major challenges when it comes to hiring and recruiting. How can Greenhouse help solve these challenges?
Greenhouse’s mission is to help companies recruit better. A bad hire can easily cost $100,000 or more due to lost productivity, rehire costs, project delays and other factors. Most organizations make multiple hires a year, costing millions of dollars, not to mention lost productivity and inability to meet targets. Greenhouse empowers organizations to make smarter, data-driven hiring decisions with a structured hiring process that is consistent, fair, and transparent.

Some of Greenhouse’s tools and capabilities that give businesses a competitive advantage include:

  • Interview kits and dashboards to empower recruiting teams to make well-informed, well-informed decisions

  • A centralized and transparent company-wide hub for all members of your recruitment panel to assess candidates’ strengths, skills and weaknesses

  • Robust and flexible out-of-the-box reporting tools that make it easy to get answers from hiring data, giving everyone the information they need to make better, more informed hiring decisions.

The Greenhouse Hiring Cloud can certainly help HR meet these challenges. How is it unique? Can you tell us more?
