Today, the team here at SJV is joined by Barton Taylor, CEO of TazWorks. We’ve been getting a lot of input and insights from CRAs and industry consultants over the past few months, so we thought we would switch things around and speak with someone on the technology and data side of the industry.
TazWorks has been on a tear in recent years. Of the CRAs that use a third-party platform for background checks, around 75% are users of TazWorks. With Barton’s experience as a CRA (in former roles) and his current experience building a widely-used platform for them, this is a discussion you won’t want to miss.
Here are some topics we cover:
- How badly the market was hit by COVID, but how quickly it has also rebounded. (A case for optimism!)
- How background check volume is distributed right now (latent demand vs. new organic growth.)
- What TazWorks has done to support CRAs throughout the pandemic (and what has worked.)
- His industry outlook for the remainder of 2020, and beyond.
It’s a quick bite this week — around 18 minutes — so no excuses 😉.
