Lunio, a dynamic tech company, aims to make the internet safer and more reliable for businesses. By automatically eliminating fake clicks, traffic, and leads on all ad platforms, Lunio helps companies achieve efficient growth.
Matt McKenna, the Head of Talent Acquisition at Lunio, has played a crucial role in the company's transition from a 10-person start-up to a 75-person scale-up within two years.
Background check experience
As Lunio rapidly expanded, the recruitment process became more complex and time-consuming. Specifically, manual reference and background checking was a significant burden.
This process often involved chasing up references through phone calls and emails, with many requests going unanswered. Not only was this task labor-intensive, but it also risked slowing down the pace of growth and compromising the efficiency that defines Lunio's work culture. They needed an automated, flexible solution that could streamline background checking without compromising their high standard for recruitment.
Lunio sought a system that would automate their reference and background checking, freeing up valuable time without affecting their careful, diligent recruitment approach. The ideal solution needed to be customisable, able to provide varying levels of background screening for different roles, and adaptable to the company's growth. The solution also needed to seamlessly integrate with Lunio's existing HRIS (Bob) and ATS (Teamtailor) platforms.
Lunio chose Zinc as their background screening provider. Zinc's customisable features and integration capacity made it the perfect fit for Lunio's unique needs. Zinc was up and running in just two weeks, thanks to a swift turnaround after the initial demo.
Since implementing Zinc, Lunio has onboarded 40 to 45 employees, saving an average of 55 hours on conducting and requesting background checks. Just in February, the company saved 13 hours. Additionally, Lunio's candidate satisfaction feedback score on Zinc has been a perfect 5 out of 5, indicating that Zinc's streamlined process didn't negatively impact the candidate experience.
Matt McKenna praised Zinc's user experience, stating that it transformed archaic, manual processes into an intuitive system, making Lunio's hiring process more efficient and seamless. Zinc was not only able to meet Lunio's specific needs but also allowed them to improve their candidate experience, making it an essential part of Lunio's growth journey.
