Convenient Integrated Background Screening with Verified First

Verified First Background Screening

Verified First is known for raising the bar on streamlined background screening solutions backed by the best client support, and for developing the easiest, fastest HR system connections, for free.


What is “WOTC” Screening?

WOTC Tax Credit iRecruit

WOTC Screening is used to determine if a new hire is a member of one of the Work Opportunity Tax Credit’s ten target groups that would make the employer eligible to receive a tax credit for hiring the individual.


iConnect: Including Different State W-4s, Tied to Work Location

iConnect Onboarding New Hire Documents

iConnect is iRecruit’s paperless, electronic onboarding module that adds on to iRecruit. You can use iConnect to collect new hire information, including forms such as I-9s, W-4s, Direct Deposit, Emergency Contacts and more. If you have employees throughout different states, it’s important to include the correct W-4 forms when you hire.


Three Rules for Texting Job Applicants

iRecruit Text TXT

Texting is available to all iRecruit users who would like to incorporate texting into their recruiting tools. iRecruit TXT allows users to initiate conversations with applicants directly from the applicant’s profile page. iRecruit users can have a faster time to fill by using texting.
