Identity Verifications are Key
Confirm the information provided on a resume and/or job application.
Unfortunately, not all applicants are totally honest about their qualifications and may make some slight or even egregious misrepresentations of their educational and professional backgrounds. According to a 2014 Employment Screening Benchmarking Report, 88% of respondents reported that background screening has exposed a person who lied on a resume.
Verification services, which include checking employment histories, educational degrees, and professional licenses, can help employers ensure that applicants have the qualifications and backgrounds you require for an open position.
Hire with Confidence
HR TruCheck is also comfortable working directly with applicants themselves to help substantiate claims. Getting applicants directly involved in the verification process often helps speed it along. We allow them the opportunity to provide us directly with documentation like paystubs, tax records, or diploma copies, which helps expedite results or, in many cases, serves as the necessary proof we need to complete the search.
Verification services help avoid the potentially disastrous consequences of hiring someone who does not meet the stated qualifications for an open position. An unqualified new hire may not be able to perform necessary job requirements, which could negatively impact individual and organizational performance, not to mention overall revenue.
When we do involve an applicant, we understand the sensitivity involved and the need to keep their experience top-of-mind throughout the entire screening process, which is why we offer value-added solutions tailored specifically for them.
