In a rapidly developing economy like ours, organizations are often seen in a mad haste to hire in large numbers. During this time a large number of candidates also resort to fake document submission since proper verification is not carried out before hiring. It is also supplemented by the fact that there are nearly 7500 agencies that operate across the country for providing fake educational and employment documents.
For any growing organization, it is imperative to hire the right talent. However, in order to avert fraudulent practices related to hiring, companies have become cautious and conduct an employee screening procedure before finalizing a candidate.
The TrustID verification app has also introduced a host of pre-employment verification services that can be availed instantly as well as detailed ones:
