Employment History Verifications are an Important Tool in Your Toolkit

10% of employment history verifications contain at least one serious flag you want to be aware of. When hiring for your company’s future, you should have an in-depth understanding of a candidate’s past.

A candidate’s employment history, including reasons for departure and length of employment, provides a snapshot of whether a candidate is hardworking, reliable, and committed. It also verifies candidate information and determines whether they have the experience to perform the job. A Triton employment background check (history verification) provides quick access to a candidate’s employment record and ensures you make only the most qualified hires.

Pre employment background screening can cover a wide variety of background checks, ranging from the well-known criminal background to employment screening and more.

Employment history verification checks are more common today than 15 years ago. Conducting thorough and complete employment history verifications can help ensure you’re hiring the most qualified candidates.

We highlight any discrepancies between resumes and the results of employment verification checks. Our complete checks screen for costly past behaviours such as theft, workplace violence, resume fraud, computer misuse, lawsuits, workman’s compensation fraud, and sexual harassment.

Employment history verification is an important tool in gauging a candidate’s work history and experience. When going through the hiring process, a structured employment background check can give you insight from previous employers, which is insight you may not be able to glean from an individual’s resume.
