ATLANTA, APRIL 12, 2023 – Today, Equifax® (NYSE: EFX) launched a new pre-employment verification solution, Talent Report™ Employment Flex, designed to help employers and background screeners more easily verify a candidate’s specific employment records in support of more informed hiring decisions. With its patent-pending design and functionality, Talent Report Employment Flex allows users to customize the report output, with the option to preview all of a candidate’s available employer names and choose only the desired records. This provides greater flexibility and control for those who may only want to verify a candidate’s employment with specific employers that are most relevant to the job.
“Employers recognize that pre-employment screening can help them identify the best possible candidates for their open roles,” said Joe Muchnick, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Employer Services and Talent Solutions at Equifax Workforce Solutions. “At the same time, candidates expect to move through the hiring process at an increasingly rapid pace. With Talent Report Employment Flex, our unique preview functionality gives background screeners and employers more control over the report output while helping to expedite the screening process, helping employers make hiring decisions faster in a competitive market for job applicants.”
