Through which an organisation gets induced with pseudo information due to the inadequacies of legitimate data and the candidate becomes a possible threat to the organisation. In order to avoid such circumstances, employment background verification becomes essential. We perform the following types of employment background verifications:
Current Employment Check – It is a case in which the present experience of a candidate where he/she is employed at present is verified. Verified information is mostly obtained either from the human resource department or immediate supervisor.

For us being sure about the truth, many checks are suggested and one of the most important is drug tests.

Criminal Record Check is a fundamental process for analyzing a person’s loyalty. Herein, a candidate’s criminal reports are collected at various levels such as a city, state, country with other minor details like home address, property details, and neighborhood report. Any information proving a candidate responsible for fraud or any traces of anti-national activities such as terrorism makes the candidate a threat to the organization and also helps an employer to make the righteous decision of not getting in such candidates into the organization.
Criminal record check enlists a person’s trustworthiness, safe environments for an organization, confirms the candidate’s credibility, decreases the vulnerability of an organisation against any kind of threat. Criminal record check suffices the legal requisite to safeguard undue risk to any venture or enterprise.
Studies confirm that checks done on a potential employee brings significant authenticity to the reality of a candidate and highlights what he/she has lied about. This verification is conducted in such a way to further differentiate between employees and pick the ones who are potentials with no advent risks.
Verifications involve a comprehensive name matching search, from a collection of global and Indian databases that include financial, regulatory, criminal and compliance databases. Some of the databases include most-wanted criminals, local police lists, Central Vigilance Commission, Central Bureau of Investigation, Indian courts where we search for politically exposed persons, terrorists, and other individuals who have committed fraud or crime across the world including India.
Establishing safety in your workplace or community is a must. A single element of discrepancy can impact your workplace safety, motivation, and brand reputation. Irrespective of the level of the hire, a criminal background check is mandatory which enables
> Identification of potentially risky hires
> Safeguarding your organization’s reputation
> Protection of organizational assets
> Fostering trust among current employees
We verify the candidate’s criminal records, driving records, and verify whether he is on a terror watch list or sex offender registry. In India, we don’t have a central repository to check criminal records. We go to the candidate’s local police station & request them to do a background check on the person you are hiring.
We overcome the following challenges:
> Criminal verification is more difficult in India due to lack of a central registry or a computerized database
> A person may be residing in one or more places earlier to get a complete criminal background check done, all the state, district and local police station records need to be reviewed.
Identification is the action or process of identifying someone or something or the fact of being identified. To process any critical information about any individual, their official account or proof of identification is a must. Establishing integrity within the organization has become a key factor for growth and is taken care of by most of the leading corporates as of now.
Verification of any discrepancies in the identification documents of a candidate gives a detailed eye about the candidate being trustworthy or not for the later run. This is one such check that might seem to be very simple at its base but is undoubtedly the most critical one. It helps an employer get assurance if the hire would mislead the organization in the future or not.
To confirm one’s credibility on the basis of their identification proof we verify the legitimacy of the details they provide the employer. The details of the candidate are documented and sent to a employee background verification service, a series of automatic processes take place thereafter:
Classifying: The document type may be recognized automatically. If not, the type must be indicated to the service before verification can start.
Extracting: Information on the document and its bearer is extracted from the source.
Verifying: Detailed checks are performed on the document’s security elements.
Responding: A detailed analytical report is a yield to the client of the verification done.

How reliable is the candidate in terms of work he/she will confer depends on the skills and knowledge that the individual has? Forging qualification and educational history are some attempts candidates are prompt to fabricate so that they get through the vacancy. Hiring the best resource is crucial for any organization. And with the best resource, we mean the one who meets the criteria thoroughly.
Educational qualification is one of the most essential criteria for any candidate to be eligible for a position in a company. To meet the criteria and be recruited, candidates may tend to forge the documents of their qualifications. Such exhibits by candidates can hamper the organization with less efficient work by the particular candidate due to a lack of knowledge. To avoid circumstances as such, educational checks are important that guarantees the authenticity of the candidate’s qualification.
Academic record check consists of verification of the dates of attendance and whether the degree was obtained by the particular candidate. Most of the degrees are verified by the admissions and records office of the school or institution. The verification process validates.

> Recognized under which authorized board/university

In order to get additional insights about a candidate, a professional reference check is a mandate. It enlists more insightful information about a candidate. The clarity to the individual’s profile is brought to the employer through a professional reference check. With the market burning hot due to competition for opportunities intensifying, a minute misrepresentation of facts can potentially cost an employer a bad hire for the opportunity.
The biggest mistake an employer can commit on behalf of the organisation is that he/she takes the candidate’s word into account. A job seeker might be plotting thousands of stories and exaggerating the work skills he/she might never happen to have.
To authenticate the work history of the candidate, we contact the colleagues and their immediate supervisors to get a thorough comprehension of the candidate. The verification gives us a measure to gauge:
> Professional competence
within an individual. The professional references are those specific people who are enlisted by the candidate themselves for attesting their quality in terms of performance, competence, and conduct. A brief testimony of the candidates the outcome of this check.
