What is document verification?

Document verification is the process of verifying the employment documents and education documents supplied by your candidates. Verification of the candidate’s documents helps to confirm the claims of the candidate are correct, e.g. verification of the candidate’s prior employment, educational qualifications, certifications, and any other documents provided to assert a candidate’s abilities.


Why conduct document verification?

There are many benefits of conducting document verification:

  • Protect your business from liability and risk of hiring unqualified or under-qualified candidates. Ensure you are hiring candidates who can complete the job responsibilities assigned to the role.
  • Screening your prospective candidates will save you time and money in the long run by understanding from the outset whether the candidate is qualified and matches the requirements of the role.
  • Candidates and employees who are not upfront about their qualifications may indicate a lack of integrity in their working behaviour.
