by ICrederity India Certified Background Verification Company

A credential check is important for scrutinizing the professional licensing of any candidate. It helps in determining and ensuring if it is in good to take it forward or not. In addition to this, it’s very helpful towards evaluating the affiliations as well as the candidate’s membership. 


In recent days lots of companies conduct the credential verification process so that they can get complete details about the past work history and other relevant information about the candidates. So, if you have qualified in your interview, you should get prepared for the scanning process of your documents conducted by the company. So, every prospective job candidate needs to understand how these credential verification services are carried on by employers. 


Process of employee background verification


This process includes a thorough checking of the work history of a candidate. Along with work history, college records, checking of certificates, etc are also done. Sometimes the credit score of a candidate is also verified. In general, the entire process gets complete between three to ten days. But in certain cases where the employer wants to do in-depth verification, then it can be a lengthy process. Normally when a candidate qualifies in the interview round, the background verification process begins. Once completed and found OK the appointment letter is issued by the company.


Normally big private limited companies hire reputed third-party agencies to conduct the credential verification services. Whereas small or medium-sized companies have their HR team to work on that. An extensive background verification process is run by any Government agencies or PSUs to get confirmation about the records of an employee before hiring. At first, a PSU will check whether you are resident in that particular address for more than 6 months or not. Normally the documents like Aadhaar, records stored at NAD or National Academic Depository, are thoroughly checked. 


What information can be found with a credential verification check?


Background checking of a candidate is one of the most reliable processes in recent days before hiring any employee. One must understand the details that an employer can get from this background verification of a candidate. 

  • It is possible to get details of any court case or where there is any criminal case against you. 
  • The hiring authority can contact your previous employer, if necessary, to get more details about your work history. They can get information like your job profile, your pay, and performance record. 
  • If the hiring authority feels so, then they can also reach your university to check whether the certified submitted by you are, true or not. 
  • In general, candidates avoid hiding his or her address or other details. But, in some cases where any candidate wants to hide any important details then, he or she can hide the address. So credential verification services will help the company to get accurate information and living address. 


But here one thing you must keep in mind that every employer needs your consent before they conduct the background checking process. If you, as a prospective employee, discover that without your consent verification is done, then you can report and take legal action.
