Cisive Announces 2022 Talent Screening Healthcare Benchmark Report
Global background screening and compliance solutions provider Cisive, PreCheck's parent company, releases a healthcare edition of their inaugural talent screening benchmark report.
Holtsville, NY – March 24, 2022
Cisive, a global provider of compliance-driven human capital management and risk management solutions, announced today the release of Cisive Insights: Talent Screening Trends in Healthcare Benchmark Report. The report is based on the healthcare responses from Cisive’s Insights Benchmarking survey, with human resources, talent acquisition, compliance, and recruitment professionals contributing to the survey with their insights, providing a view of the healthcare industry’s talent screening landscape during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Among the key takeaways, the survey found that:
- Undisclosed criminal convictions (50%) and driver motor vehicle records (34%) were the two most common discrepancies uncovered from background screening by healthcare organizations.
- 38% of healthcare employers introduced new background checks in 2020, and the same percentage either introduced a screening program or an ongoing monitoring program for employees.
- 57% of healthcare companies recruit internationally, while 50% consider finding qualified job candidates as the top talent acquisition challenge.
The report reveals that despite the unpredictability of the pandemic, most healthcare organizations continued their talent acquisition efforts at normal levels while some even increased recruitment efforts during 2020 and beyond. As the healthcare industry incorporates remote work in the evolving workplace, more than one-third of employers introduced new background screening components during the pandemic.
The report’s findings also articulate how screening practices are evolving. For example, most of the background checks introduced in 2020 by healthcare employers consisted of ongoing monitoring (19%) or rescreening (18%) programs. While time of hire only remains the most common frequency of background screening (39%), a growing number of healthcare organizations prefer post-hire screening programs of every two years (29%) and annually (15%).
“Cisive’s Talent Screening Healthcare Benchmark report reflects the insights of healthcare organizations and how their policies and procedures changed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said James Owens, President and CEO at Cisive. “Our study investigates how company workforce practices, including how they handle background checks and screenings, have changed during the past few years. With the ongoing talent shortage impacting the healthcare industry, it is more important than ever to have a global strategy when it comes to talent acquisition and background screening. As healthcare organizations continue to adapt and recover from the past two years, our results indicate that most employers are incorporating new background checks into their strategy.”
