equensWorldline found a reliable partner for their screening process

Data required by law, fast and adequately checked

equensWorldline is one of the largest payment processors in Europe, with a market share of 12,5% in the eurozone. As they provide a financial service in the Netherlands, they need to comply with sector-specific laws and regulations, including the Financial Supervision Act (Wft). This law requires employers to check if (potential) employees are reliable and/or have ever been declared bankrupt. Also, requesting a Certificate of Good Conduct (CGC) is mandatory.

Validata as a reliable and professional partner

To adequately check the previously mentioned data, equensWorldline was looking for a reliable, professional partner. They asked Validata to take care of the majority of the screening process. Here, the following elements were important:

  1. Transparency and clarity of the screening process.

equensWorldline has to justify the screening process to regulators, including De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) and card schemes MasterCard and VISA Card.

2. The possibility to completely align the screening process with the screening policy.

For each position, the appropriate screening elements are selected. Some positions need a more thorough screening profile, including specific checks in addition to the usual verifications. Also, as equensWorldline is operating internationally, all screening profiles should comply with local laws.

‘Validata does what we agreed to when starting our collaboration. For many years, they have been taking care of an important part of our onboarding process, for our national as well as international staff.’
