Why conduct employment verification?

Employment reference checks serve an important purpose - they help ensure compliance and verify the accuracy of a candidate's resume. Conducting global employment verification checks ensures you follow basic compliance and allows you to gain accurate information on a candidate's employment history. This protects your company from making a poor hiring decision.
