Podcast #38 - Ryan Hart- Behind the scenes of employment background checks and drug screens

Secret Tech Sauce Podcast

Episode 38

Good day - I hope your week is shaping up to be what you are aiming for...

I recently recorded a podcast with Ryan Hart, the Director of Product for the background check and drug screening company, Verified First. We covered several unexplored areas of the hiring process - specifically the “Ban the Box” legislation that states and cities continue to adopt across America. Whether you are a job seeker or recruiter, you need to be aware of “Ban the Box”.

Outside of a good podcast, I am focused on finding talented software engineers, marketers with SEO experience, executive-level operations talent, and roasting and delivering coffee beans to homes and workplaces across America.

As you listen to the podcast, I hope you are doing what you love to do while sipping on something you love to taste. Get after it. Podcast link here - http://bit.ly/STSPodcast38

Podcast Agenda:

  • Ben/Ryan find common ground with coffee and treasure hunts - Ryan still uses cream and sugar in his coffee, but we still accept him.

  • Ryan talks about why working for a background check company can be sexy.

  • Ryan talks about generations in the workplace and the marketing fluff around it.

  • Ryan talks about a trend that will get bigger in the coming years for recruiters, candidates and hiring managers - “Ban the Box”

  • Out
