The Importance Of Employment Verifications

Employers verify employment history to confirm the information provided by a candidate is true; the work experience is sufficient to meet the position’s requirements; and past titles, achievements, or responsibilities are valid. Using a third-party to conduct Employment Verifications helps to speed the hiring process by relieving the burden from busy hiring teams.

Employment Verification helps you:
  • Hire qualified candidates more quickly
  • Ensure your candidate’s employment history is accurate
  • Confirm your candidate has the skills and experience required
  • Mitigate risk of hiring a candidate with false credentials
