And like most of you, we had life events that required employment verification. Working in the employment verification industry, we realized that most employers now share their sensitive employee data with third party verification companies. These verification companies had been tasked with responding to verification requests on our behalf. Your data and ours was now available on-line and being shared with verifiers and government agencies. While this process worked great for verifers and employers, finding out what data was being provided on our behalf and to whom was near impossible.
So, in 2011, we launched i2Verify, a verification solution built around the employee experience. Finally, a solution that allows employees to see what information is being provided on their behalf. With i2Verify, not only do employees have complete visibility into the verification process, they can block access to their data, add security features, and receive notifications when someone views their data – all at no cost to the employer.
