Considering many job applicants are making false educational claims, Education Verification and Academic Background Checks have become increasingly critical in protecting an employer against hiring risks.
Many employers conduct a background verification process for hiring; however, most still fail to verify applicants’ claims about educational achievements in parallel to the increase of resume fraud cases.
It should be remembered that education and training background are the key components to rely on an employee’s capabilities and future on-the-job success.
Within the framework of the issue’s importance, The Society for Human Resource Management recommends companies receive external professional Education Verification services within the hiring process only through direct contact with the schools and issuing authorities (IA).
Due to increasing competition in the business world -even for a low-profile- employers are looking for at least a bachelor’s degree from the job applicants. This situation encourages candidates to consider exaggerating their academic accomplishments and employment history – or even flat-out lying about them. Hence, it is evident that many candidates could purchase fake diplomas from illegitimate universities, known as diploma mills, to increase their chances of getting hired.
To help to minimize the risks associated with negligent hiring, we provide education degree verification services so that employers can spot applicants who exaggerate or lie about their degrees and other educational qualifications. As a result, employers could avoid the most dishonest individuals and reduce the risk of later legal actions for negligent hiring.
In this frame, Prosecure provides a comprehensive education verification, including awarding an education degree and diploma, the field of study, the completion date, and the name of the official organization providing accreditation, among others.
