A background check ensures that a (potential) employee is suited for a certain position. Diverse background checks are available for you to choose from depending on your organisation’s needs. Each sector and country have their own laws and regulations which also determine which background checks are required.
Validata’s background checks and screening profiles
Each sector and position require a different screening profile that contains different background checks. Validata has created different standard profiles for each sector that match the sector’s needs. Depending on the responsibilities and potential risks per position, you can choose from the good, better, or best profiles as shown below. Are you missing a certain check? Our screening profiles can easily be extended with relevant add-ons e.g. extra identity checks amongst many others.
Validata offers various screening profiles that specifically match your sector. In doing so, we ensure that there is always a screening profile that meets your organisation’s needs .
*Local & international checks (add-ons) available per request
*Profiles are combined with a service package; Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum
An identity check, or ID check, is the most frequently performed check within Validata’s screening profiles. The identity of a (potential) employee is verified by examining a passport, ID card, or residence permit. Validata performs identity checks on both a national and an international level for businesses across Europe.
Validata performs education checks. We verify diplomas that are attained at the candidate’s highest level of education across worldwide institutes. Training or course certificates or diplomas from private institutions cannot be verified.
Checking the creditworthiness of (potential) employees offers insight into possible (financial) risks. Relevant information from courts, bailiffs, debt collection agencies is consulted and payment arrears are checked. The application procedure for an international creditworthiness check differs per country.
Criminal record check
Validata assists organisations obtain international criminal record checks. Validata has access to an extensive database of countries where we can request international criminal record check or we check with the relevant country’s embassy. This process differs per country.
Work experience check
Validata checks the work experience of a (potential) employee. An appointed referee or HR department is approached to verify the period of employment, stated position, and employer.
Validata’s company check provides certainty about the owned companies of (potential) employees. The company’s actual existence, branch number, financial stability & credit worth, and which legal form it uses are checked. Validata performs this background check with international data partner Dun & Bradstreet (D&B).
PEP-check, sanction list, and adverse media check
Validata examines global accounts of money laundering, (financial) fraud, the financing of or participation in criminal organisations, and drug-related crime. A team of researchers checks daily publications from financial, regulatory, and disciplinary authorities worldwide. However, anti-corruption agencies such as Interpol, Europol, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) are also consulted.
Validata checks the information as stated in the Curriculum Vitae (CV) through an Education and Work experience check.
The candidate must upload the three most recent salary slips here and one bank statement from his/her bank account where the salary deposit can be seen. Validata checks whether the documents are present and it is up to the client to review these documents.
