Adjudication is the process of evaluating the results of a candidate's background check against your organization's hiring policy to help filter out any candidates that may not meet your guidelines.
For example, a candidate's background check may reveal a history of theft. In that case, depending on your company policy, this information may disqualify them.
Another example might be a candidate's background check revealed several speeding tickets. If it is not a driving role, depending on your company policy, this would not disqualify them and you may move forward with the hiring process.
What are the benefits of adjudication?
When your hiring guidelines are applied consistently, it eliminates the subjective nature of some hiring decisions. This can help with diversity and inclusion and may assist in avoiding bias.
Your company can also improve on your time-to-hire because, with the guidelines already in place, Orange Tree can use these guidelines to bring you the fastest turnaround time possible.
