Verifile Limited, the UK’s leading provider of pre-employment and background screening services, announced today that sales have continued to exceed expectations, with a stunning 200% increase in 2007.
2008 has been even better so far, with more new clients signing up in the first two months than in the first six months of 2007.
As stories of fake CVs continue to proliferate in the press, employers are becoming increasingly aware of the huge difficulties that they face when it comes to managing candidate vetting in-house. As a result, more and more organisations are outsourcing employee screening to specialist providers like Verifile.
"We are uniquely positioned to help employers reduce both the risks and costs associated with recruitment through our expertise in pre-employment screening." says Eyal Ben-Cohen, Founder and Managing Director of Verifile.
"Our global reach and cutting-edge online technology helps them not just identify rogue candidates but make more informed employment decisions, meaning that they gain new recruits who stay in their jobs longer and perform better."
Expanding global services that are right for the times
To meet growing demand, Verifile has expanded its international network and now offers a comprehensive range of services assisting employers to do everything from checking criminal records to credit histories, globally.
"The energy and momentum in our business is tangible," Ben-Cohen continues. "We attribute it to an absolute focus on client satisfaction, combined with powerful technology base and our unique approach to ensuring a smooth candidate experience."
Innovation and flexibility have indeed been key factors in driving success. Verifile's advanced online technologies capture data from applicants and keep clients informed at all stages of the screening process. The online nature of its systems also allows employers to obtain a credit report within seconds as opposed to the industry standard of 1-3 working days. "For recruitment professionals that need to credit check temporary workers within hours this is a huge advantage." says Ben-Cohen.
Verifile Limited, based in Bedford, UK, is a technology and service leader in the background screening industry, offering an array of innovative and cutting-edge solutions to meet the needs of human resources, compliance, and security/legal professionals in employment screening, vendor certification and fraud prevention. Verifile was short-listed for the 2008 Complinet's Compliance Best Technology Solution Award.
