The decision to hire a candidate involves a lot of brainstorming. Screening one for the desired skills and experience is half the game! Hiring employees involves behavioral assessments, logical and psychological tests and more. This process of evaluating a candidate’s persona is known as ‘profiling’. The process of candidate profiling helps to find out the skills, strengths, core areas and motivations related to an individual.

However, quite often, profiling is misinterpreted as verification. Background verification also involves assessment of an individual’s identity, profile and reputation. This is done through verification of employment details, education credentials, criminal records, address and much more. However, verification is different from Profiling.

Results of profiling is an indicator of how the candidate will perform in future. It is a probabilistic model where one predicts the future behavior of an individual. In contrary, background verification is a time based model where the individual’s past is screened and using material evidences and facts, the truth is found out. (Read here why background screening matters)

Yes, background screening is a reflection of the future behaviour of a candidate. However, it is the projected basis for the reality of the past.

Background Verification Profiling

  • Focus on the past
  • Focus on the future
  • Analyzing in nature
  • Predictive in nature
  • Validates the basic requirements
  • Showcases the growth capabilities

Before an organization starts investing for the development of an individual it is important for every organization to find out about the candidate’s intelligence and caliber. There are many firms in the existing market, who help hiring companies in scrutinizing the candidate profiling and finding out the perfect fit for the company.

In the journey from sourcing a candidate to his/her selection and training in the company, as a pre-emptive measure, an employer should run the first-level check to determine the candidate’s capability, competence and reputation to be the right fit for the role offered. This is where background verification is a must-have.

Profiling serves an altogether different purpose here by showcasing the candidate’s aptitude to learn and grow. Verification indicates if basic requirements are met and if the candidate can fit the bill

For conducting verifications, one needs to get all details related to a candidate and hire a background screening company to get comprehensive results, while ensuring the process is fast (to retain the candidate) and compliant (to ensure secure workplace).
