Founded in 1977, Cisive is a global provider of compliance-driven human capital management and risk management solutions. The company provides tailored solutions to meet the unique requirements of its enterprise clients with expert knowledge of specific risks and regulations that apply to the financial services, healthcare, transportation, and other highly regulated industries.

“At Cisive, we are not just a vendor but a true business partner for our clients and see ourselves as an extension of their HR team. We approach each client by aligning our objectives to theirs in the development of solutions built for compliance but tailored for the client’s unique business model and structure,” explains Jim Owens, President and CEO of Cisive.

While the reduction in the information provided in credit reports has been challenging for positions regulated under FINRA, Cisive’s Financial Anomalies Search Technology (FAST) is the perfect solution for banks and other financial services institutions to run credit reporting to meet regulatory requirements. FAST provides compliance officers and recruiters with the means to match regulated candidates’ self-disclosures regarding public civil records, liens, or judgments in compliance with federal, state, or local laws and regulations.

A customer success story best exemplifies the value proposition of FAST. A client needed an efficient way of getting missing information in the credit reports while bringing people on board. With FAST, Cisive compensated for what was lost in the credit reports and provided all of the information required to vet people and drive the right decisions.

On another occasion, a company hiring over 10,000 employees per year was investing over 58 days to fill with new hires, and most of the time was lost in manual work.
Since this time-intensive process was making the company uncompetitive in the marketplace for talent, they decided to implement Cisive’s Onboarding Portal to eliminate the manual, paper-based activities. Cisive’s partnership allowed the company to automate many new hiring processes while eliminating duplicate data entry and converting over 15 documents to an electronic format. The company reduced its time to fill by over 17 days, significantly accelerating its hiring process.

With Cisive, clients stand to benefit from not just a background screening partner, but a lifelong partner—a company that stands by their work, protects their clients, and provides the consultation and guidance that world-class organizations are looking for. Cisive’s quality of service, robust reporting, cost-effectiveness, and state of the art, configurable, proprietary technology set it apart from all others in the industry.

Cisive incorporates statutory and regulatory considerations, benchmarking, best practices, company culture, and hiring risk levels to ensure the best background screening program in the industry. Cisive has never had a judgment filed against it for violations of the FCRA or any other consumer reporting statute or regulation.

“We align our candidates with our core values of HEART: honesty, excellence, accountability, respect, and teamwork,” says Owens. HEART represents the Cisive approach to business and has been instrumental in cultivating a collaborative culture where employees can thrive. These qualities have been key to Cisive’s success and are ingrained in every aspect of the company, beginning with the recruitment process. Over the years, Cisive has also strengthened its commitment to diversity and inclusion and established a formal D&I committee in 2020. The company believes in the value of a diverse workforce and considers it key to its continued success and to catalyze innovation in the future.

As the human capital landscape continues to change dynamically, Cisive is poised to be at its forefront. The company aims to continue to develop leading-edge technology as the approach to talent acquisition and management evolves. They recently joined 14 other leading enterprise multinational labor market organizations to launch the Velocity Network Foundation (VNF)—a collaborative, vendor-neutral, nonprofit organization established to define, deploy, and champion the Velocity Network: a globally accessible, trustworthy “Internet of Careers” powered by innovative blockchain technology in response to growing data privacy, security, and market pressures. The future looks bright for Cisive.
