Diplomas, professional qualifications, and identity information verified within minutes. With Otentica, you automate pre-employment screening across all sectors.

What is pre-employment screening?

Pre-employment screening, in short, is a background check on job applicants and existing employees. The purpose of pre-employment screening is to assess and verify the suitability and reliability of candidates, as well as to minimize risks related to fraud, theft, security, and compliance with laws and regulations.

Why screen with Otentica?

Research shows that job applicants often present falsehoods to improve their chances, ranging from embellishing resumes to serious fraud involving diplomas, identity, and professional qualifications. Because companies find it challenging to assess this risk, thorough pre-employment screening is essential to detect misconduct. With Otentica, not only is the onboarding time for new candidates reduced, but the 'candidate experience' is also optimized through a fully digital, simple, and user-friendly approach.

Through Otentica, various details of the applicant are requested and verified, including:

  • ID information (passport, driver's license, etc.)
  • Verification of education and diplomas (DUO)
  • Professional qualifications
  • Banking information
  • Company details (Chamber of Commerce & VAT)
  • Criminal history (Certificate of Good Conduct)

For whom?

Otentica is the ultimate screening solution for any organization. Regardless of the sector, Otentica can be used to thoroughly check personnel. In addition to screening potential candidates, it may be interesting to screen current employees in the case of job changes, organizational changes such as mergers, changed personal situations, and new regulations. This way, you can identify risk factors and keep personnel records up-to-date.

About the integration

The integration with Otentica enables OTYS customers to screen (future) personnel from within their own OTYS environment. This increases efficiency, ensures compliance with laws and regulations, and prevents information from being fragmented throughout an organization (GDPR).
