Bothell, WA (PRWEB)

With over 70 million hourly workers in the US, companies with an hourly workforce now have a way to automatically pre-qualify applicants as part of an online application management process. TalentWise, a leading Hiring Process Management (HPM) solutions provider, today announced its partnership with Snagajob, the leading provider of workforce management solutions exclusively for hourly employers, to help these companies ensure they hire only the most reliable and reputable candidates and quickly get them to work.

Together, TalentWise and Snagajob developed the first pre-integrated sourcing, applicant tracking, and employment background screening solution designed specifically for hourly employers. The integration allows Snagajob customers to quickly launch any of TalentWise’s custom HPM solutions, including background checks and paperless drug testing, directly from the Snagajob Hiring Manager platform. In addition, this integration will assist employers to hire screened applicants quickly and efficiently.

In industries with traditionally high percentages of hourly workers, such as retail, hospitality, and food services, employee turnover tends to be high. According to a recent article published in Human Resource Executive magazine, the rate of turnover in the retail industry alone can fluctuate widely between 80 and 500 percent. High turnover can be detrimental to any business, but especially to hourly employers. It is estimated that it costs an employer upwards of $3,500 to hire and train a new hourly employee.

“Making the hiring process more efficient for companies hiring hourly workers can have a major impact on their bottom line. Our pre-integrated solution will help Snagajob customers increase efficiency, lower cost to hire, reduce risk, and drive down turnover, giving them a competitive advantage,” remarked Bill Glenn, Vice President of Marketing and Alliances for TalentWise.

“According to our research, 37 percent of hourly job seekers report that getting hired quickly is the most important factor when looking for a job. Thoroughly checking a desirable candidate’s qualifications, work history, and criminal background within a matter of hours is ideal,” adds Amanda Richardson, Senior Vice President of Product for Snagajob. “You want to help managers hire quickly, while eliminating undesirable candidates from the pool as expediently as possible. Our partnership with TalentWise expands on our current offerings and solves critical business issues for employers.”

In the coming weeks, TalentWise FastTrackTM background check products will also be available through a streamlined solution that will instantly enable Snagajob small business and franchise customers to purchase comprehensive background checks. This new service will be offered at highly discounted rates with the added convenience of a credit card payment process.
