Small businesses need new employment screening tools
In the US there are five million companies with fewer than 20 employees*. They need to hire the best people and feel confident about their hiring decisions.
Credit data and other consumer reports are valuable inputs when making hiring decisions, but small businesses often cannot access consumer reports because they can lack business attributes to gain necessary credentials available to larger businesses to fully screen for great hires.
In fact, criminal background checks were cited, by a wide margin, as the most desired service sought by nearly half (44%) of microbusiness executives, according to a 2017 TransUnion survey**.
These small businesses need a way to manage risk and protect themselves.

To better support small businesses, TransUnion built ShareAble for Hires. This new employment screening service is designed specifically to empower job applicants and hiring managers to quickly — and securely — share important personal information.
ShareAble for Hires allows:
- Job applicants safely share personal information to quickly land their dream job
- Small businesses get immediate access to powerful, regulated screening tools

Job applicants want to land that dream job and start the next chapter of their careers. Small businesses want to hire the best people and onboard as soon as possible. TransUnion helps both parties realize their ambitions and goals when using ShareAble for Hires.
Sadly, many pre-employment background checks and online screening tools can be inefficient, expensive and require screeners to have special credentials to access critical hiring information. ShareAble for Hires erases these roadblocks for small business employers by giving job applicants the power to share their information when they want and with whom they want. This seamlessly shares the important verification info required by employers.
