Asurint has been redefining how background searches are done; solving problems and reducing anxiety for recruiters and their candidates throughout the hiring process.

Using innovative tools that aid in faster turnaround times and more accurate information, Asurint provides the only background screen optimized to deliver the truth, on demand.

Greenhouse Recruiting’s integration with Asurint allows your organization to add an Asurint background check to a job's interview plan to assist efficient workflows with complete visibility of the hiring lifecycle.

Greenhouse Recruiting will generate the API key and display it in a subsequent dialog box. Click Copy to save your API key to your clipboard. Please store the API key in a secure location for now. You will provide the API key in a further setup within Asurint's software.

Use the Asurint integration in Greenhouse Recruiting 

Submit an order 

When an offer is created for a candidate, use the Asurint Background Package dropdown menu within the Accept Offer modal to select a package.  

Once the candidate is marked as Hired, an email link will be generated and sent directly to the candidate to complete the background forms.

When a candidate's background check is complete, the Activity Feed on the candidate profile will contain a log of the background check results complete with an:

  • Asurint order ID
  • Background check status
  • Link containing the full Asurint report

Your team can then utilize the report link provided within the candidate Activity Feed to access the full report in Asurint.
