Introducing Veremark Career Passport in association with TechServe Alliance

The World Today

TechServe are constantly assessing the needs of IT & engineering staffing and solutions firms and asking the questions:

• How can we help lower costs?

• How can we improve a firm’s productivity?  

• How can we help firms enhance the value of the services they deliver to clients and consultants?  

• How can new technologies advance these goals?

The Opportunity

TechServe identified pre-employment screening as an area of operations in dire need of innovation.

1. IT & engineering staffing companies are required by their clients to perform background and reference checks prior to placing consultants with clients.

2. The typical firm performs many background checks. Reliability and speed are critical.  

3. These services also represent a significant recurring expense for staffing firms where margins and profitability are always under pressure.

The Solution

TechServe approached Veremark, as we offer an innovative solution to the problem of redundancy and inefficiency in the background screening market, with a fully developed background screening platform, with the best UI and strong ATS integrations.

TechServe were impressed with our pioneering work to develop a solution to help with background checks for the credentials of skilled consultants by using the blockchain that can increase reliability and speed, and also reduce costs.

TechServe chose the Veremark Career Passport for their current and future members, as it delivers a huge benefit to staffing firms and end client businesses. It delivers a valuable verified credentials solution, to help hire and onboard consultants, as a strong differentiator in the employment marketplace.


What background check do I need?

This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.

Why should employers check the background of potential employees?

Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.

How long do background checks take?

Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.

Can you do a background check online?

All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.

What are the benefits of a background check?

In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.

What does a background check show?

Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.
