Smarter Employment Verifications: How to Get What You Pay for

November 13, 2019 – 10am CT / 11am ET


Background screening reflects your organization’s commitment to safety, but also helps find qualified performers. How you screen for performance indicators is often through verifications of employment, education, references, and professional licenses. The need for proven talent continues to rise and employers want know qualifications upfront, marked by 30% more employment verifications being conducted in the past year according to a Verified Credentials study.

It’s no surprise employers like you are expecting more to measure the past performance of candidates. Potential inaccuracies between what’s reported on a background check and the credentials reported by job candidates could mean that you might find something “off.”

However, the process to conduct verifications is under fire. Join us to talk the current state of verifications, including:

    • Example methodologies to perform verifications and tips that may help overcome challenges
    • Sample practices to help obtain information from employers and other institutions
    • Legal issues you may want to consider when reviewing past employment information

    We’ll look at potential ways to keep the validation process running smoothly when unique circumstances for employment verifications come up. We’ll also look to the future of professional verifications and how background screening companies are changing the game.

    How do you measure a “smarter” verification? When we’re talking to HR professionals, we hear a lot about the screening metrics that matter to them, among them, verification success rates. In this webinar, we want to share ways that may help you can get higher success rates and ultimately the verification details you pay for. In the end, you will walk away with tips to renew your confidence in verifications, obtain more complete background reports, and ultimately make more informed hiring decisions.
