Candidates make a range of falsifications on job applications at all levels, from junior roles through to executive positions. Common lies on resumes include job titles, responsibilities, time in a role and even places of work.
If you hire new workers without the knowledge and experience they say they have, you expose yourself to reputational damage as well as the time and resources needed to fix an expensive hiring mistake.
WorkPro’s Employment History Checks are a smart addition to any risk management program. CV checks provide employers with an accurate, unbiased, and fast verification that candidates can perform at the level required in their new role.
Once the CV check is requested, WorkPro contacts the HR or Payroll department of the candidate’s listed places of work to verify their employment. Details verified include:
Five valid attempts are made over three days, and as a last resort, the direct manager will be contacted.
WorkPro Employment History Checks can verify resume details going back 10 years. The verification process is managed via telephone, fax or email. Each method depends on the country where the check is being conducted.
WorkPro’s Employment History Check can verify previous details of up to 10 years. The check can include verification of information from up to two previous employers of each candidate.
You will receive a comprehensive and detailed report that will be available in your WorkPro dashboard. You will receive a notification when it arrives. The report will include all of the details obtained as listed above.
To meet national privacy regulations, informed candidate consent is mandatory as part of the application process for CV checks with WorkPro.
