Verification & Credentialing

Know Who You’re Really Hiring

- Verification & Credentialing -

Education and work history are the most commonly falsified sections of a candidate’s résumé or job application. When a candidate falsifies their credentials or licensing information, this can become a liability nightmare for an unsuspecting business. Conducting compliant, education checks through degree verification, OIG audit, and resumé audit employers can make a better hiring decision.

That’s why KRESS Employment Screening offers candidate verification services.
