The basics

Before you start working in Vetty with your team, take a few minutes to get familiar with our buying process.

  1. Vetty serves companies of all sizes and shapes.  Regardless of how big or small you are, you will receive a perfect buying and onboarding experience.  
  2. You can get started with Vetty in two ways, the first is through our Vetty Self Serve Account Setup, you get the same great product, with pre-negotiated prices that beat the most competitive prices on the market.  The second is by working with the Vetty growth team, our growth team focuses on client-centric design, building perfect background screening solutions for companies that are hiring, often rapidly. You can book a design and discovery session right here – without a single back and forth email.

1. Start by connecting your brand,
to the applicant experience

Why it matters

Applicants that recognize and align to your brand and mission are generally stronger employees.  Creating an onboarding experience that connects your brand identity, purpose, and intentionality is important.  Rather than sending out templated, unrecognizable, boring emails – send invites that get your employees excited to be joining the team.  

  • Add your logo in Vetty and it will automatically update the applicant communications to include your branding. 
  • Customize your “Get Started” email to put the perfect touch of Brand, Mission, or any other helpful information to get them onboarded smoothly. 

2. Use, or create new packages
based on the applicant’s role

Why it matters

Not all roles require the same background check packages, and a “one-size fits all” approach can lead to overspending, or possibly, may not be evaluating the areas of concern most important to their role.  In Vetty, you can set up as many packages as you’d like, this will allow you to build the packages that fit the role, budget, and requirements.  

  • With Vetty Self Service – you get our four most common packages.  Need to add a package? No big deal – email support@vetty.co and we’ll help you build the perfect package. 
  • When working with the Vetty Design Team, we will build the perfect packages together.  

3. Add your users, and set their permissions  

Why it matters

If you have a teammate, an HR team, or Operations teams involved in the background experience – get the whole team on Vetty together and working cohesively.  Setting up Vetty with your teammates, users, and permissions only takes seconds. 

Need to figure out which permissions are the best fit for your team? You can dig into them here.


4. Deploy your first background check

Why it matters

You didn’t start working with Vetty for the heck of it, you partnered with Vetty to run background checks – perfectly.  You’ve taken just a few minutes to get the profile branded, your communications on point and your teammates added.  Kick-off your 1st check with only two clicks.
