A recent survey by Tecmark in the UK revealed that the average smartphone user completed over 220 tasks on their device each day.* This is compared to an average of only 140 tasks completed on their desktops. Smartphone users are also utilizing their mobile devices early in the day – often before they even get out of bed; to check the weather, answer emails, and review job opportunities. And it’s also the last thing they do at night which adds up to over 3 hours and 15 minutes of mobile phone use each day on average. If you focus solely on Millennials and Gig Workers, that average is likely to be significantly higher.

An exceptional user experience, especially when candidates get to their background checks, is largely defined by intuitive design and functionality, is no longer a nice-to-have. The second a user comes across a clunky user experience, it’s game over.
