Top 5 Frequently Asked Questions

What does a screening entail?

A screening involves verifying certain information about a (potential) employee. The data screened must relate to the candidate’s job performance. For example, the BIG registration of a health care provider must be checked when hiring.

How does Validata screen candidates?

Validata screens candidates within an online environment called Valluga. Within this secure environment, both the employer and the candidate can access their own account. The employer must specify who they want to screen and what they want to check and then Validata takes over the screening process. Once all checks are complete both the employer and candidate are notified and can review the report online. Validata also has an in-house support team that can answer any screening queries and support candidates.

What is the average turnaround time for a screening at Validata?

After the candidate has provided the required data, the average turnaround time of a screening at Validata is 5 working days. Elements that have a longer turnaround time are the certificate of conduct (VOG) and the verification of foreign diplomas.
