In today’s highly regulated and technology-driven industries, employers are competing for top talent more than ever. As a result, they must focus on providing the best candidate experience, which usually means seamlessly balancing compliance and due diligence in the pre-employment background screening phase. That’s where efficient processes that leverage the latest technology can determine whether an employer meets their hiring goals.
Governed by a mission to mitigate risk for employers, Cisive empowers clients with actionable intelligence and clarity throughout the hiring processes. The uniqueness of Cisive’s pre-employment screening services stems from their unwavering focus on truthful reporting, legal compliance, and integrity of source material. “We draw on our rich experience to offer the right solutions to enterprise organizations in highly regulated industries such as financial services,” states Jim Owens, President and CEO of Cisive. The company’s Financial Anomalies Search Technology (FAST) is the perfect solution for banks and other financial services institutions that have to run credit reporting to meet regulatory requirements. FAST provides compliance officers and recruiters a means to match candidates’ self-disclosures regarding public civil records, liens, or judgments in compliance with Federal, State, or local laws and regulations.
Cisive not only leverages technology to automate pre-employment screening processes but also employs highly trained personnel for review of background investigation information at critical points. This approach provides clients unparalleled insight and the most accurate information about potential candidates and ensures that they overcome employment background check challenges and bring the most qualified candidates on board. Cisive incorporates statutory and regulatory considerations, benchmarking, best practices, company culture, and as well considers hiring risk levels to deliver one of the best background screening programs in the industry.

With a driving mission to provide the most accurate, reliable risk mitigation services to keep clients out of harm’s way, Cisive delivers high accuracy rates and low dispute rates for their clients. Moreover, while providing this best-in-class quality, its turnaround times compare favorably to competitors. All these operational and background screening capabilities work in cohesion to improve the candidate experience. “We don’t cut corners; as a result, clients don’t have to choose between technology and quality of the background screening with Cisive,” mentions Owens.
Being operational in the background screening industry for 40 years, Cisive has truly carved a unique niche for itself. The company maintains the same approach to quality todayamid the radical changes in technology that have happened over 40 years, and despite other background screening companies coming on the scene and taking shortcuts. Recently, Cisivetook its global background screening capability to the next level by acquiring the Pre-Employment Screening division of Blue Umbrella (now Cisive Global), a well-known and highly regarded background screening and due-diligence company in the APAC region and PreCheck, the pre-eminent background screening company in the healthcare vertical, adding to its presence in transportation with DriverIQ, and railroad and vendor screening with eVerifile. These were major milestones in Cisive’s strategy to provide true, global background screening capabilities for every regulated vertical.
For the future, Cisiveplans to continue developing leading-edge technology as the approach to talent acquisition and management continues to evolve. “The nature of background screening is going to undergo a revolution in the next few years due to advances in technologies such as distributed ledgers (blockchain), and this will change the business models for background screening companies. We are seizing on that opportunity and will be out in front,” says Owens. From a geographical perspective, Cisive will continue to expand and become the top choice for Fortune 1000 companies in highly regulated industries across the globe. “Cisive is a company that stands by their work, protects their clients, and provides the consultation and guidance that world-class organizations are looking for. It is for these reasons that many of our clients have trusted us for their background screening,” concludes Owens.
