How many employers check references thoroughly?
Employment verifications confirm the employment history of an applicant and are a crucial part of the recruitment process. However, because of the time it takes to conduct this process, many employers ask for little more than a "Yes, he/she worked here" or even don't bother at all.
Many cases of fraud could be avoided by taking up previous employee references, which give you the ability to really get an insight into the person you are about to employ. If proper background checks are not carried out, the only judge of the candidate's character may come from one or two relatively short interviews.
Capita Recruitment Vetting Service can carry out your employment checks to give you peace of mind. Regardless of the position, a lot of time and effort is usually put into finding the right candidate, and our service can help give you the final assurance that you have made the right decision.The checks confirm employment history and can supply the following data: employment dates, position held and reasons for leaving / termination.
Some companies are reticent to offer detailed information on previous employees or operate policies not to give detailed references. Our experienced staff will gain as much information as possible via our thorough and professional checking service and will note any difficulties encountered.
