Governed by a mission to mitigate risk for employers, Cisive empowers clients with actionable intelligence and clarity throughout the hiring process. The uniqueness of Cisive’s pre-employment screening services stems from its unwavering focus on truthful reporting, legal compliance, and integrity of source material. As a company, it draws on its rich experience to offer the right solutions to enterprise organisations in highly regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare, and transportation.
Cisive utilises technology to automate processes where achievable by technology, but also employs highly trained personnel for review of background investigation information at critical points. This approach provides its clients unparalleled insight and the most accurate information and ensures that they overcome employment background check challenges and bring the most qualified candidates on board. Cisive’s accuracy rates are high, its turnaround times are competitive, and its dispute rates are low. All these operational and background screening capabilities work in cohesion to improve the candidate experience. It doesn’t cut corners, and as a result, clients don’t have to make a choice between technology and quality of the background screening with Cisive.
The company focuses on helping businesses in highly regulated industries such as financial services, healthcare, and transportation by implementing an efficient and compliant employment screening programme. Cisive is not just a vendor but a true business partner for its clients and it sees itself as an extension of their HR team. It approaches each client by aligning its objectives to theirs in the development of solutions built for compliance but tailored for the client’s unique business model and structure.
With Cisive, clients not only get a background screening partner, but a lifelong partner – a company that stands by their work, protects their clients, and provides the consultation and guidance that world class organisations are looking for. It is for these reasons that many of its clients have been with the company for over 30 years. Cisive’s quality of service, robust reporting, cost-effectiveness, and state-of-the-art 100% configurable, proprietary technology sets it apart from all others in the industry.
Cisive provides comprehensive global background investigations on potential and current employees, vendors, clients, and business partners. Comprehensive services include background screening, vendor/contractor screening, executive screening, drug testing, fingerprinting, paperless onboarding, and electronic Form I-9/E-Verify solutions. It launched its onboarding suite of technologies in 2007 to cater to enterprise clients’ talent acquisition needs and it has been enhancing the platform ever since.
Also, it recently took its global background screening capability to the next level by acquiring the Pre-Employment Screening division of Blue Umbrella (now Cisive’s global division), a well-known and highly regarded background screening and due-diligence company in the APAC region and PreCheck, the pre-eminent background screening company in the healthcare vertical, adding to its presence in transportation with Driver iQ, and railroad and vendor screening with eVerifile. These were major milestones in Cisive’s strategy to provide true, global background screening capabilities for every regulated vertical.
Meanwhile, a company’s most important asset is its people, and Cisive is no exception. When recruiting for new talent, it focuses on attracting the best people in the industry. It accomplishes this by aligning its candidates with its core values of HEART: honesty, excellence, accountability, respect, and teamwork. HEART represents the Cisive approach to business and has been instrumental in cultivating a collaborative culture where employees can thrive. It has been key to its success, which is why these qualities are ingrained in every aspect of the company, beginning with the recruitment process.
Over the years, Cisive has strengthened its commitment to diversity and inclusion and established a formal D&I committee in 2020. While D&I has always been part of Cisive’s culture, it believes it plays an important role in facilitating a healthy workplace environment where everyone feels valued, respected, and included. Cisive believes in the value of a diverse workforce and considers it key to its continued success as a company and to catalyse innovation into the future.
In April 2020, Cisive released SAFE19, a COVID-19 clearinghouse solution, developed to address the world’s journey to re-open after the pandemic. Cisive’s SAFE19 solution is a secure, paperless, central repository specifically designed to handle the uploading, validation, and compliance reporting on COVID-19 test and immunisation data. With SAFE19, governments, businesses, and education institutions can safely re-open while controlling the spread of COVID-19.
Also, SAFE19 is a flexible, data-driven solution designed to mitigate the risk of COVID-19 with the capability to evolve as vaccines and various testing options become available. The system has the capability to use an individual’s profile data and immunisation status to generate a digital or physical badge to verify their immunity.
Moreover, SAFE19 protects public health data and eliminates privacy concerns by offering a solution that is federal Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliant. Designed to provide peace of mind to both organisations and end-users, SAFE19 provides confirmation authenticity of testing with dispute resolution to ensure the validity of individual records.
In May 2020, Cisive announced its CONTACT19 contact tracing solution, designed to allow employers to take a proactive approach to testing and contact tracing to ensure the safety of their workforce. The programme encourages employees to self-report if they have COVID-19 symptoms or a positive test and can identify and notify other employees who may have been in proximity, making recommendations for isolation or quarantine.
In June 2020, to complete its suite of COVID-19 compliance solutions, Cisive released its ACCESS19 solution. ACCESS19 is a secure, paperless safety solution specifically designed to allow businesses to resume day-to-day operations while keeping their workforce safe from COVID-19.
ACCESS19 eliminates paper documentation COVID-19 attestation processes for businesses by enabling the entire procedure to be complete from a secure mobile device. ACCESS19 provides attestation digital badges valid for one day, minimising the risk of COVID-19 by enforcing daily attestation procedures. It was recently enhanced to allow for COVID-19 vaccine data capture.
Cisive was not only able to innovate and provide clients with three timely solutions during the pandemic, but its own team can also ensure the ongoing safety of team members and remain compliant with federal, state, and local guidelines.
Looking ahead, Cisive is going to continue developing leading-edge technology, as the approach to talent acquisition and management continues to evolve. The nature of background screening is going to undergo a revolution in the next few years due to advances in technologies such as distributed ledgers (blockchain) and this will change the business models for background screening companies. Cisive will continue to seize on this growing opportunity.
The company also plans to keep expanding its global footprint – At the rate it is growing, Cisive predicts that it could soon become the top choice for fortune 1000 companies in the highly regulated industries all over the globe!
