KPA partners with Tandem Select to offer Dealerships Background Checking for Faster and Better Hiring Decision

KPA and Tandem Select have announced a partnership to provide Tandem Select’s background checking services through KPA’s HR management and compliance system.


Lafayette, CO (PRWEB) May 17, 2011—KPA, provider of human resources (HR), environmental, health, and safety software and services to over 3,500 dealerships nationwide, continues to expand HR product offerings with preferred partners. Tandem Select will provide background checking services through KPA’s HR management system, HotlinkHR.


In a nationwide survey, KPA found that over 30% of applicants do not provide complete or truthful information on their employment application, and more that 6% of applicants have an undisclosed criminal conviction. A background check and drug test is an employer’s best method for sorting out unqualified or dangerous people during the hiring process. The challenge for dealerships is to make sure that background checking is performed in a consistent manner as part of company policies.


Chris Baker, CEO of Tandem Select explains “Including a candidate’s ranking score card with a background check report and drug testing results allows a quick and objective evaluation using a company’s defined standard for hiring employees. The ranking score card delivers faster decisions on whether to move the candidate to the next stage of hiring and ensures compliance with company policy.”


With Tandem Select, dealerships can obtain both a background check report and a ranking score card of the candidate against their defined standard. Automated candidate ranking scores make it very simple to determine which candidate should move forward in the hiring process. Dealerships can order background checks, view the ranking, and detailed results, and then move the candidate to the next stage of hiring process, all within the HotlinkHR software.


Kathryn Carlson, HotlinkHR Product Marketing Director, comments that “Tandem Select offers background checking that provides needed information during the hiring process to ensure that company policies on background checking are followed, and that the best candidate is selected.”
