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, more accurate information and seamless integrations, 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. It also has efficient workflows with complete visibility of the hiring lifecycle. In this guide, we will cover how to:
