Mobile-focused development has eclipsed the desktop and is delivering a big impact on many aspects of business communications and corporate design. From website to platform UX, the mobile experience is becoming the most important tool for managers and business owners. The background check industry is no exception – mobile is here to stay.

Candidates, HR professionals, and hiring managers can all benefit from the proliferation of mobile devices. Smartphones and tablets bring a host of changes to the digital world, and it’s imperative that you tailor your offering and platforms to meet the needs of both desktop and mobile users. Mobile still has some limitations, but the advantages are profound. Smaller screens with different dimensions demand a different approach – you need to offer concise and clean layouts to make your platform or site usable on different devices. Touchscreen applications open up a new world of possibilities to your users. Push notifications can make the difference between applicant engagement and applicant apathy.

With mobile-first design considerations, your productivity and effectiveness can increase dramatically. Over half of all job applicants are using mobile sites and apps to search for their next opportunities. Without mobile design considerations, you can risk losing applicants’ interest. Failure to deliver a positive mobile UX for your users quickly translates to higher compliance costs and poor completion rates. User input is the lifeblood of the modern recruitment process, and it’s up to you to deliver an effective and easy-to-use platform for your stakeholders.

Background check providers and HR technology companies need to embrace the new world of mobile computing. As the devices become faster, more powerful, and more ubiquitous, the gap between mobile-first and mobile-last will continue to grow. Don’t get left behind! Make sure your platform looks and feels great on any device. Thorough research and user testing are a must in this new mobile world we live in. Candidate background screening is now a mobile-based process for the vast majority of your potential users.

Mobile applications create new opportunities to attract and engage your audience. Background check and other HR-solution providers need to make the move to faster, lighter, and more effective software to retain their market share and continue to grow their revenue. It’s not something anyone can avoid, but it’s especially important for companies looking to hire the best and brightest.

Fear and Loathing in Background Screening

If you put yourself in the shoes of a candidate facing a background check, you could empathize with it being a pretty stressful experience. Even among the most pure and innocent of applicants, there is always a risk that an error was made along the way that could yield a negative result. While candidates certainly have the right to request their background check report, it’s typically not something they ever consider. Generally, if an applicant makes it to the point of consenting to a background check as a condition of employment, it’s usually a formality. The candidate is excited, sometimes a bit nervous, but confident that their screening will come back clear and they can set a start date for their new opportunity.

Unfortunately, in about 20 percent of cases, a background screen returns with some type of negative result; this could be due to anything from a simple data entry error to a real conviction. This is where it gets interesting. Crickets. Nothing, nada. Persona non grata. The candidates’ worst fears are realized when suddenly, they don’t hear back from the company that they thought their contingent offer was a done deal and the applicant doesn’t even know what happened or what to do.

This happens all too often. Once a candidate signs the consent to a background check, which they usually don’t even remember they have done, everything goes behind the curtain. They have virtually no control in the process, no visibility into the status, no ability to review documents or consents. Sometimes, they haven’t even read their own report. And they certainly don’t have the ability to dispute it simply and easily.

That’s where technology comes into play. By putting the control in the applicant’s hands via mobile enabled tools, candidates can enter their own information and drastically reduce errors as well as ease the burden of data entry for background check companies and HR departments. Technology, such as our flagship product, Swifthire Mobile, enables candidates to pay for their own background check (if that is the company policy), track the entire process, see what screenings are being conducted, review all necessary (and only necessary) consents and disclosures, read reports and dispute them as necessary.

Giving the applicant control over the process is not only empowering, it actually takes a stressful experience and makes it manageable which improves both the candidate experience and speed to hire.
