Providing high-efficiency, simplified background screening solutions is one more way we put our clients first. Verified Credentials users can now seamlessly connect their employment screening with the rest of their hiring process directly through UKG's dashboard. Here are a few ways our integration with UKG is designed to improve and simplify the user experience without sacrificing results

Here is a closer look at our three-step integrated background check process in UKG's platform.

  1. Select job applicant for screeningFind the candidate you need to screen on the UKG applications page.
  2. Start background check order: Update the candidate’s Hiring Stage on your UKG dashboard.
  3. Order submitted and applicant notified: Enjoy transparency and peace of mind knowing that candidates and HR will get status updates on Verified Credentials’ screening progress in real-time. 

Once the order is submitted, the process begins immediately. But the simple and fast process isn’t the only benefit of background check integrations with UKG. Next, let's look at some of the technology features of this integration.


Technology Designed for Hiring and Screening


The right technologies paired together can make all the difference. Verified Credentials’ state-of-the-art in-house technology, paired with UKG's top-of-the-line HR workflow solutions, can make the hiring process less of a hassle. Simplifying the user experience and keeping candidate management all in one place creates a better experience for both candidates and HR users alike. 


Tools To Increase Candidate Value Proposition


Lack of communication and complicated application processes are two of the primary reasons candidates have a negative hiring experience. Studies have also shown that many applicants spend an average of five months on the job hunt. Creating a better end-to-end hiring experience can improve the quality of hire and even increase brand awareness.


Integrating your UKG account with Verified Credentials’ background screening services can boost the candidate experience with added transparency and time-saving enhancements.


  • Mobile-first applicant experience: Pair UKG integration with a custom candidate portal to collect additional details needed for the background check. The intuitive user interface is optimized for any screen, it keeps candidates on track with notifications and statuses, and it includes built-in support if a candidate needs it.
  • Autofill candidate data: Candidates who previously provided information via UKG will see their information automatically transferred to their background check application, eliminating redundant data entries. 

Tools To Improve Employer Experience


In addition to adding value to the candidate experience, a background check integration with UKG can simplify the screening process for HR. Autofill can increase turnaround time by speeding up the candidate process—but it doesn’t stop there! Quick and convenient access to analytics and real-time tracking keep employers in the know.


  • Real-time tracking: Status updates allow up-to-the-minute updates on background checks directly in your UKG Applicants menu. 
  • Quick and easy setup: With a pre-established integration, our team can get you up and running in minimal time.
  • Easy access to analytics: View comprehensive administrative reports on the fly directly from your UKG dashboard.

Locating, screening, and hiring the right candidates can be daunting and time-consuming. Our goal is to simplify the process and increase efficiency, while providing timely and quality information. Connecting Verified Credentials’ background screening services directly to your UKG dashboard can potentially save time from start to finish. But perhaps more importantly, a single system could mean a more cohesive hiring process for both HR users and candidates.
