India’s blue-collar job market witnessed the strongest growth in the first half of 2022, with the falling number of Covid infections, lifting of restrictions, and a pickup in economic activity. Due to the higher demand for manpower, February 2022 clocked more than 1 million active blue-collar jobs, which includes 800,000 new jobs as per an ET survey.
The numbers speak volumes about why businesses today want to verify different aspects of a person’s past faster and safeguard against reputational risks.

Blue-collar employees are an integral part of the workforce to run critical processes like manufacturing, warehousing, construction, retail, logistics etc. that directly influence the revenues of any organization. That makes thorough blue-collar background verification even more important. Businesses today are heavily investing their resources to evaluate staff in a bias-free and quicker way. This is a significant step to reduce per-hire costs and time-to-hire new blue-collar employees but most importantly to reduce serious reputational risks.
Businesses do want to conduct blue-collar background verification however, it can be a bit challenging for the HR teams. Following up on manual processes can be cumbersome and time-consuming, delaying employee onboarding. How would it be if the entire background screening activity could be automated, ensuring only reliable blue-collar employees are hired with speed, accuracy, and cost efficiency? Different processes could be easily accessed to make informed decisions and set up internal policies to reinforce them too? So, what are the top ways to verify blue-collar employees?
