Our Founders, Devon Dickinson and Tommy Cheng, started Verified First in 2012. We’ve helped thousands of companies transform their hiring practices from good to great in these ten years, and in the process, we’ve transformed, too.Our company’s purpose is to make companies great by helping them make effective hiring decisions. We’re breaking down how we achieve this goal by highlighting who we are, what we do, and how Verified First remains your one-stop shop for all background screening needs.
Our Unique Approach
Verified First isn’t your run-of-the-mill screening provider. We’ve pioneered a way to easily integrate our screening tools into human resource and talent management tools and platforms through our patented technology. With our VF Connector, you can run background checks, order drug tests, and more without having to leave your preferred talent acquisition solution.
Our Solution: Technology and People
A typical screening integration usually takes between 4–6 weeks, costs hundreds of dollars, and sometimes causes delays in recruiting. However, the VF Connector Extension can be integrated in minutes. It seamlessly connects your favorite HR solutions, ATS, CRM, Payroll, and more all in one place. With our award-winning integration already implemented into 100+ partner platforms (and counting!), you can start streamlining your hiring process within the same day of implementation.Our technology is only half of our solution. We help hundreds of companies create some of the best teams by taking extra care of our employees and making sure they love where they work. In a service-driven industry like ours, it’s critical that we find, train, and nurture the best employees we can. Our focus on employee satisfaction and growing a positive culture has named us one of the Best Places to Work in Idaho for the past 6 years.
