Background checks are crucial when hiring, even during a Pandemic, but first you need to find your candidates! LinkedIn is contributing to this effort by offering free recruitment tools for the next 3 months to those searching for new hires & volunteers! You can also do some things to speed up your background checks. For example, you can have your candidates enter their details directly into your background vendor’s system. This eliminates the need for HR teams to type all of the applicant’s information and it expedites the background.
