TazWorks Partners with BirdDog to Streamline the Recruiting Process


DES MOINES, Iowa – November 19, 2014 – TazWorks, LLC, the front runner in background screening software, has partnered with BirdDog, a leader in recruiting and applicant tracking solutions (ATS) to bring a comprehensive, streamlined hiring solution to construction, engineering, skilled trades, manufacturing, and federal contractors in a number of industries.

This partnership begins with an integration that allows human resource departments to accelerate the recruiting and hiring process by collecting applicant information, ordering background check reports, and viewing background check results on demand. Creating a centralized candidate profile simplifies the hiring process for federal contractors and non-contractors alike as they seek an automated way to manage and report on their recruitment outreach and meet Department of Labor and Office of Federal Contractors Compliance (OFCCP) requirements.

“TazWorks’ dynamic customer base serves organizations that seek simplicity in recruitment and applicant tracking,” said Todd Skokan, President and CEO at BirdDog. “We look forward to a successful partnership as BirdDog provides an easy-to-use cloud-based systematic recruitment solution that is fully integrated with the TazWorks platform, providing access to hundreds of background and drug screening providers. The combined result is a complete centralized candidate profile to help organizations make their best hiring decisions.”

TazWorks has completed over 100 ATS integrations in an effort to fulfill its strategic initiative to be the background screening software provider that offers clients the most third party connections.

“We're delighted to add yet another winning solution to our list of integrated ATS/HRIS providers,” said Roi Stone, TazWorks’ Vice President of Business Development. “BirdDog represents one more way our clients can deliver increased value to their customers by infusing speed and efficiency into the candidate onboarding process.”

Screening agencies interested in offering this solution to employers should contact a BirdDog or TazWorks support representative to get started.
