Employment screening involves the verification of relevant candidate or employee data, ensuring the best possible hire for a certain position. In doing so, you know who you are recruiting and retaining in your organisation!
Employment screening ensures that (potential) employees are who they say they are and that their backgrounds pose no risk to your organisation. However, screening can be a complex process and by conducting it in-house, more responsibilities are assigned to your HR department. For this reason, an organisation may choose to outsource this process and make use of professional employment screening services, such as those provided by Validata.
The basis of employment screening
Screening (potential) employees and checking personal data is a much-discussed topic, but what exactly does it mean, and why do we background check? Our white paper shares more information.
If you want to verify a candidate’s CV or check if a diploma has been obtained, two options exist. One option is to do the verification yourself. However, checking such information takes time and it may not be clear how you can verify certain information. The second option is to outsource the background check to an organisation experienced in employment screening.
Validata is market leader in employment screening. For example, we perform a background check and assist organisations with reference checks. Validata works together with trusted partners and uses digital integrations to access and verify the right data. As a result, employment screening with Validata is quicker and can be cheaper than the hidden costs that in-house screening entails.
Employment screening service of Validata
Through our years of experience, we are well aware of the needs in different sectors. Moreover, we work with an innovative screening software, in which candidates can be registered 24/7. You only have to submit the candidate’s name and contact details. Validata will then contact the candidate taking the entire screening process off your hands. We ask the candidate to provide the necessary information to then start the verification process by working together with our data partners. Once the screening is fully complete, the employer and candidate will receive a final screening report of the pre-employment screening. In doing so, Validata ensures a fast, convenient and transparent process for both parties.
