Mumbai, Mar 2 (ANI/Business Wire India): The Employer Services segment of First Advantage Corporation, Asia-Pacific's largest background screening and talent acquisition solutions provider, today announced that India Infoline has become the first company to sign up for VerifyDirectT, Asia-Pacific's first-ever, contributory, database-driven, online background screening service.
VerifyDirect provides a cost-effective solution by reducing time-to-hire and enabling human resources personnel to focus on more productive and strategic functions, rather than investing a great part of their valuable time in trying to obtain and provide past employee information from/to various third parties.
Upon receiving the individual's consent, VerifyDirect can be used by any bonafide company for conducting background checks on potential employees, contract/vendor staff or customers through secure online transactions 24/7.
Ashish Dehade, managing director (West Asia) of First Advantage, said, "The signup with India Infoline reaffirms the faith of Indian corporates in the need for a digitized database that has the potential to optimize cost and time opportunities in the existing process of verification of background information.
VerifyDirect, aiming to be the largest verification database in the country and the Asia-Pacific for employment history and education records, will make available data in the public domain and will be consent-driven. This will add to the transparency and authenticity of the process."
Capt. Rahul Sharma, Senior Vice President - Human Resource and Training of India Infoline, added, "In times when background screening of human resources is becoming extremely crucial, a contributory database like VerifyDirect can streamline the process and lead the drive for greater information sharing among all companies.
The fact that the database could also simplify the process for getting credit for people through readily available information 24/7 adds a greater appeal to the India Infoline group." (ANI)
