At Verification Services Inc. our motto is “we’re here to help,” and we take that seriously. Our goal is to ensure that when you hire a new employee, you have the most accurate and complete information about that person. This enables you to reduce your risks of liability, lower your employee turn-over rate, and ultimately make the best decision for your business.
Verifying Education History
Verifying an applicant’s education history is a crucial step in vetting an employee. LinkedIn reported, that in 2016, about 8% of applicants stated they had a degree on their job applications that they did not have. The best way to safeguard your company from hiring inexperienced and undereducated employees is by performing a verification of education report.
What Can be Found when Verifying a Potential Employee’s Education History?
VSI’s team of specialists can obtain different levels of education completed, either directly from the institution or from a third party verifier. Education verifications include:
- Attendance dates
- Course of study
- Graduation date
- Graduation status / degree earned
Is High School Included?
VSI verifies highest degree earned. If a high school diploma was not earned, our reports will include the highest degree earned, including verifying a GED or HS equivalency.
Why is Verifying Education Necessary?
Hiring an applicant that is not qualified for the job can result in major losses for a company. If not screened or tested properly, an unqualified employee can be detrimental to that business. The workload can prove to be unmanageable for that individual, resulting in poor performance. VSI’s team of expert analysts confirm all degrees and diplomas earned by the applicant to ensure hiring mangers only grant jobs an applicant is qualified to handle.
