Employment screening

What is employment screening? Employment screening involves the verification of relevant candidate or employee data, ensuring the best possible hire for a certain position and that potential risks are mitigated. In doing so, you know who you are recruiting and retaining in your organisation!

People determine the success of an organisation. Trustworthy employees deliver better results and ultimately, you build a competitive advantage by hiring the right people. Most organisations conduct employment screening due to risk management practices. However, due to increasing legislation and regulations screening can also ensure that employees meet certain requirements.

If you want to verify a candidate’s CV or check if a diploma has been obtained, two options exist. One option is to do the verification yourself. However, checking such information takes time and it may not be clear how you can verify certain information. The second option is to outsource the background check to an organisation experienced in employment screening.

Validata is the Dutch market leader in employment screening. For example, we perform a background check and assist organisations with reference checks. Validata works together with trusted partners and uses digital integrations to access and verify the right data. As a result, employment screening with Validata is quicker and can be cheaper than the hidden costs that in-house screening entails.
