But today, as you know, competition is fierce, our services now are a commodity, and these drivers are givens, a baseline to land and retain valuable customers. Design Matters And based on our research and feedback, we are hearing another future driver.

For background check companies like many other technology related businesses, uptime is everything. At deverus we have over 35,000 businesses including many Fortune and 100 and 500 companies using our services everyday and it’s critical that we keep to the lights on to ensure that all background checks are processed without a hitch. Before Amazon Web Service we had invested over $700,000 in dual collocation facilities, on in Austin, Texas and the other in Dallas, using the latest server technology.

More and more growing companies are turning to applicant tracking systems (ATS) to manage their expansion. These systems can help the human resources department manage the volume of applicants they have for each position, assure compliance with EEOC and other measures, and protect a company against litigation. These systems can be a great advantage, though selecting a partner can be a complex choice. If you’re considering the adoption of an ATS, there are a few questions you should ask about each potential platform vendor. Much of this information is available on the Internet from company websites and…

At deverus, we’ve seen a lot of concerns for employers when it comes to a governmental audit of their I-9 forms. We want you to avoid as many fines and problems as possible. To help, we’ve crafted this internal Form I-9 audit program for all of your employees. Do you know why most employers keep solid I-9 records? It’s because Immigration and Customs Enforcement has built a national culture of compliance with a large amount of inspections and external I-9 audits each year. ICE audits grew 1100% – from 250 annually to more than 3,000 annually –…

Chances are, at some point in your career, you’ve filled out a grueling online job application, cycling through endless drop-down menus, text fields and document-upload prompts, wondering when that final “submit” button would appear. You might have even given up out of frustration and moved on to a different opportunity. Lengthy and complicated online job applications are more a norm than a rarity, but many employers underestimate the impact these frustrating processes can have on their recruitment efforts. So we turned to data to better understand the state of online applications today, and what we found can…

The other day I had an interview with a Head of Marketing applicant who asked, “What’s your company culture?” I was like, “Wow, I’m glad you asked.” But reason for being glad was because we’ve spent so much time focusing on “company culture”. This is absolutely new because years ago we didn’t exhaust days and weeks answering internal cultural surveys, having open discussions, even debates, and eventually pasting them on our walls and having training sessions and finally weed out questions for new applicants based on our cultural values. But this is a good thing. Company culture,…

Google I/O is the search giant’s highly anticipated annual event. Each year, the conference brings together developers for an immersive, three-day experience focused on exploring the next generation of technology. Google’s Rahul Roy-chowdhury, vice president of Product Development, highlighted his keynote speech by heralding the arrival of the mobile web. An average user visits more than 100 websites on a mobile device every month. That means expectations for speed and quality have risen higher than ever. It’s imperative that technology providers focus on delivering a world-class mobile experience. Because successful recruiting relies just as heavily on mobile…

We shop, watch TV and read news on our phones, so why not apply for jobs from one? Increasingly, we do. Some recruiters say half or more of their applicants apply for jobs using their smartphones. "I probably applied for 90 percent of my positions on my mobile device," says Kirk Coleman of Plano, Texas. Coleman says he was fine letting his thumbs do the talking, filling out forms and connecting to his LinkedIn profile. "Being the generation that I am, a millennial, people kind of want it here and now. That's the mentality with this generation,…
