Pre-employment screening

What is a pre-employment screening? Pre-employment screening involves the verification of relevant candidate or employee data, ensuring the best possible hire for a certain position. With pre-employment screening, you know who you are recruiting and retaining in your organisation.

Why conduct pre-employment screening?

Research has shown that 71% of all CVs contain falsehoods, which have either been deliberately or unwittingly included. Of this, 8 to 10% are complete lies purposely placed on CVs. If you are looking for new employees, you need to be sure that their CV information is accurate.

At Validata, we believe that people determine the success of the organisation. Honest employees strengthen the organisation and together deliver better results. Therefore, it’s important to make the right hiring decision. Pre-employment screening reveals any abnormalities and mistakes that are deliberately or unwittingly included on the CV so that you can discuss these with the applicant.

Pre-employment screening with Validata

Validata works with an innovative screening solution, in which new candidates can easily be registered 24/7. All you need to do is submit a candidate’s name and contact details. Validata then contacts the candidate and asks them to provide the required information. Once we have received their information, we start verifying the data. We keep both parties informed throughout the process.

Our partners and integrations allow us to quickly verify the candidate’s data. Our screening in Sweden is completed on average within 5 working days. The Criminal record check is not included in this timeframe because we depend on the speed of the candidate and the turnaround time of the municipality. To avoid any delay in the screening process, Validata creates a preliminary screening report that can be assessed. Once the screening is fully complete, the candidate and organisation will receive a final pre-employment screening report. In doing so, Validata ensures a fast, convenient and transparent process for both parties.
