HireRight's annual benchmark report provides you with data and facts gathered from thousands of HR professionals globally, including about 500 in Asia, sharing common practices about their employment screening programs. Their answers provide you with insights on the current hiring landscape, employment screening challenges, and new initiatives planned for 2016.
This is the most comprehensive global survey of its kind and provides important insights on industry best practices.
Key findings include:
- More than half (59%) of the organisations surveyed have uncovered discrepancies throughout their employee screening process that would otherwise have been missed.
- Nearly two thirds (63%) of companies consider hiring, retaining and developing talent one of their most significant business challenges.
- More companies in APAC are planning to invest in their HR processes than in any other region: half (51%) have investment planned, compared to a global average of a third (37%).
- Despite an increasingly global workforce, only 42% of companies surveyed screen international candidates, which is a potential gap in an employment screening program.
