Identity Verification

What is Identity Background Screening?

Identity background screenings do not reveal any information regarding the applicant’s credit, financial history, or criminal history. The main point of this information is to check it against the information the candidate gave you to direct if they were being completely honest. If they are not, you may want to reconsider hiring them.

If there's one thing that any business needs to be certain of, it's that the candidate they are examined for a position is whom they claim to be. After all, if a candidate is false you as to his or her identity, they may well be false you in other ways. An identity screening is the foundation of any background screening, ensuring that the simplest and most big claim is verified. That the person you're selecting is the person you believe you're hiring.
