How Does An Ex-Employee Repository Ease Out Employment Verification?

Employment verification is a necessary and vital part of any hiring process. It helps companies make the right hiring choices by enabling them to conduct comprehensive pre-employment verification on their candidates. One way to make the process of employment verification faster and enable it to deliver more reliable results is through exit employee data. Especially in our economy today, where the quality of the workforce is becoming more nuanced than ever, accurate employment verification is a critical process for any organization’s hiring process.

At AuthBridge, we understand this need for a reliable product that would enable simple, yet comprehensive and reliable employment verification through exit employee data. That is why we have developed WorkAttest, a secure, fully automated, and web-based platform where background verification companies can cross-check exit employee data so as to be able to effectively manage and respond accurately to employee verification requests.

 

How WorkAttest serves as a repository for ex-employee verification?

WorkAttest acts as an exhaustive database for exit employee data in a way that is easily accessible for organisations. The fact that it is entirely automated makes it extremely time-saving while being able to deliver accurate results. Before the age of software as a service, a lot of the database management and managerial tasks were manual. One can imagine how difficult this must have made the job of employee verification and maintaining exit employee data. Moreover, manually going over and analysing huge chunks of exit employee data to draw conclusions can be a daunting task.

However, thanks to modern database management software, AI and data analytics, this task has been greatly streamlined. Let us explain it with a simple and easy to understand example. Suppose an employee leaves X Company for a new job at Y company. As is the norm in various industries and organizations, Y company seeks the help of a background verification company to conduct an employment verification on the employee. If X Company (the ex-employer) has uploaded the as uploaded the mandatory details of their ex-employee on WorkAttest, then all the background verification company has to do is go to the WorkAttest portal, and cross-check the information provided with the one available on the platform. In such a way, exit employee data can ease the process of employee verification.

In addition to facilitating the process of employment verification, WorkAttest also gathers data from Y company, that is the new company, and sends valuable exit employee analytics to X Company, that is the previous company. This way, ex-employers are also relieved from having to handle all kinds of employee verification requests and respond to them.

Identify the various ‘Colors’ of your Hire this Holi!

Holi-the festival of colors- is celebrated and embraced with a lot of fervor and vibes, irrespective of their religious or cultural beliefs. Holi, a synonym for ‘cheerfulness’, transcends the socio-religious and cultural boundaries. Holi brings people closer for they all share the same sense, the same idea of communal happiness. Sharing happiness is like cultivating the idea of ‘what goes around, comes around’. While HR professionals across businesses will be busy ensuring employee engagement during this festivity, they are also working round the clock to ensure workplace security, engagement and performance.

A lot of their time goes into ensuring that the work ambience is conducive and motivating. This calls for hiring quality talent- one with the right skills and attitude, which means that the HR needs to identify all colors of an individual’s personality to be able to zero into that one individual who is the right fit! In 2017, 15% candidates lied on their resume, the maximum discrepancy being produced in employment related information. This means candidates lied about their previous employment tenure and references the most, apart from faking their education, address, identity and other details. To manage the changing dynamics of new age workforce and create high potential employees, many companies in the West incorporated the idea of background screening in their HR policies.

With background checks, HR personnel across businesses evaluate and validate identity, profile and reputation of their prospective hires! Some of the key background checks which help in identifying the true colors of hires are as under: (You can read about all background checks here)

 

State of Background Screening: Present and the Future

Background verification as an idea is still facing a hard time to witness widespread adoption in India. This is primarily because the HR function still perceives this as a cost and not an investment. However, the background verification discussion is now becoming a boardroom level discussion.

To build a sustainable long-term HR strategy, and adapt to the demands of a constantly evolving corporate world, companies need to weed out dishonest employees and formulate thorough background screening techniques/processes and policies, which stops the dishonest job seekers to bypass the system. A recent survey found out that nearly 80% of the Engineering graduates in India don’t possess the skills to join the job industry and a by-product of this inept education system is fake resumes. Potential job seekers lie on their resumes about their employment history or educational qualifications to make them look more appealing to fit the job description. A comprehensive background screening program helps companies to see through their resumes.

Background verification platforms and providers empower corporations to recruit the talent whose integrity cannot be doubted and who will be an asset to the company’s growth and future. Today, as businesses are growing digital and remote workforce is being created, HR is facing the challenge of verifying people who they have not met face to face. Moreover, to match growth ambitions, they are increasingly face with the challenge of recruiting resources faster.

This calls for instant background verifications. Use of technology and APIs and creation of distributed databases have made this dream a reality. Background Verification companies in India are now delivering TrustOnDemand services with on the fly verification results. There is a constant demand to adapt to this continuously evolving world while strategizing and accelerating their growth. Background Verification can empower these corporations to formulate a comprehensive HR policy which will help them in building a team of high potential employees, ensuring the long term sustainability of their organisation.
