For many years, employment verification has been almost a “necessary evil” for background screening businesses.
On the one hand, employers view resume verification as an absolute necessity in the hiring process. Nearly 80% of job seekers have or would exaggerate their professional and educational background (or manufacture it whole cloth) to get a job. Employers turn to background screening companies to mitigate the risk of hiring unqualified, under-experienced people, which takes on greater significance during the current period of economic recovery.
But while employment verifications are among the typical consumer reporting agency’s (CRA’s) most requested services, it is also among the most labor-intensive, inefficient and non-scalable services. Approximately two-thirds of verification orders must be carried out manually — a process that often involves placing multiple phone calls, leaving messages, waiting days for callbacks, and so on.
And here's the big question-- how do CRAs continue this delicate balancing act of delighting their customers and not lose their shirts staffing to accommodate peak demand or understaffing to protect their bottom line?
