CareerBuilder Expands Into Background Screening with Aurico Acquisition

On the heels of launching a series of new Software as a Service (SaaS) solutions for recruitment, CareerBuilder has announced it’s further expanding its product line to cover another critical step in the hiring process – background screening. CareerBuilder has acquired Aurico, a leading provider of background screening and drug testing serving the U.S. and international clients. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

Aurico is a recognized leader in customer satisfaction among screening providers. Over the last 25 years, Aurico has delivered comprehensive background screening and drug-testing services, building a strong reputation for exceptional service, quality and screening automation.

Focused on enhancing efficiencies during the onboarding process and providing a good candidate experience, Aurico’s solutions help companies meet compliance standards and feel more confident about their hiring choices.

“Background screening is an essential part of recruitment, and a natural extension of CareerBuilder’s product line,” Matt Ferguson, CEO of CareerBuilder and co-author of The Talent Equation, said. “Aurico has differentiated itself in the market with great customer service and leading-edge technology that we can easily integrate into our software solutions. Working together, we can move people along the hiring process faster and with greater convenience for both employers and candidates.”

CareerBuilder created the world’s first and only pre-hire platform, offering high-powered sourcing, mass job distribution, automatic CRM, easy workflow and comprehensive analytics all in one place. CareerBuilder also operates one of the largest job boards in North America.

“CareerBuilder is a well-known, trusted, global technology leader that shares our passion for innovation and customer service,” Ben Goldberg, CEO of Aurico, said. “Becoming a part of the CareerBuilder family will enable us to quickly scale our business and bring new options to our clients. None of Aurico’s competitors will be able to match our comprehensive service platform.”

Aurico’s secure screening solutions are configurable and can integrate with CareerBuilder’s pre-hire platform or a client’s existing applicant tracking system or human resource information system. They can also be purchased as stand-alone solutions.
