Certn and Deel Are Reshaping How Companies Hire

VICTORIA, BC, Nov. 22, 2022 — Today, Certn, a leading global background check provider trusted by 10,000+ customers, announced that its background screening solution is integrated with Deel, a remote hiring company with the #1 rated global payroll solution. This partnership creates the first hiring platform to embed background checks into its onboarding workflow. With automated payroll and compliance, companies of all sizes can simplify international hiring, lower hiring costs, and improve the user experience for recruiters and candidates alike.

“Companies can’t afford to wait on the phone for hours or miss out on candidates because results take too long,” said Andrew McLeod, CEO of Certn. “The manual alternative, chasing documents, and remembering multiple logins sucks. Certn’s platform makes it faster and easier to run background checks and verify international credentials. This integration with Deel removes the compliance logistics and time consuming process of hiring and onboarding global talent.”

Quick Facts

  • Background checks are the norm: 93% of firms globally run background checks as part of the hiring process 
  • Stay compliant: In regulated industries it’s a legal requirement to run regular background screenings
  • Reduce time to hire by up to 80%: Certn’s real-time background checks streamline hiring with AI to automate tasks and instant ID verification to avoid delays
  • Decrease turnaround times by up to 35%: Certn’s mobile-optimized experience means users complete the process faster, reducing potential candidate loss in a competitive hiring environment

The Global Workforce Revolution 

As companies tap into international markets to fill vacancies more quickly and unlock new ways of thinking, so does the need for knowledge of local laws and tax systems. Deel is reshaping how companies hire and pay global employees with their payroll solution. “With this integration, the best part is that users can benefit from the security and efficiency of the Deel platform and do even more in a few clicks,” said Deel CEO and co-founder Alex Bouaziz. “We’re thrilled to partner with a company like Certn that’s equally obsessed with building tools that shape the future of work.”

Nothing should come in the way of businesses hiring the best global talent and building the best global teams. This partnership is another step toward a faster, easier way to hire anyone.
