Education Verification – An Important Step in Your Hiring Process
Here’s an alarming fact: 27% of employment applications and resumes contain ‘exaggerations’ about academic achievements. This is why resume verification is an important part of hiring smart. Education verification services are crucial in finding the best talent for the job.
Your company’s reputation for providing the best quality services and products depends largely on the types of employees you hire. It’s only prudent to verify that applicants and potential hires have received the right training and education to be effective in their functions. Educational and resume verification checks will provide you with the information you need for hiring smart, such as a candidate’s Major, Degree, graduation status, year of attendance, and honors received. You will receive notification about any false information—for example, if the applicant never completed a degree cited on the resume.
Education fraud is more common than you think. Many job applicants provide false credentials, education history, and employment history in order to appear more qualified for the job. Fraud is widespread in this highly competitive market where employers require degrees, advanced skills, and impressive work experiences. If you make the mistake of relying on false information on an applicant’s resume to make hiring and compensation decisions, you will likely waste money and time on training. Bad hires also negatively affect your company’s productivity and increases your turnover rate. Resume verification can prevent these problems. You can trust A Good Employee to provide thorough background checks to confirm a candidate’s education and work experience so you can make better decisions.
