Now for some details. Outsourcing employment verification is a critical decision for any HR or Payroll department. If your organization has greater than 1,000 employees, responding to incoming requests for wage and employment verification information is likely a time consuming and burdensome activity, with little to no value add for your organization or the employee.
In fact, most large employers already outsource this function. Here’s why:
- Employment verification becomes an employee benefit. When you work with a verification provider, employees are able to control access to their sensitive wage and employment data via a portal.
Through this portal, employees can actively manage the verification process, view the reports that are accessed on their behalf, control their security settings, and create specific employment reports to suit any number of unique life events that require employment verification.
- Outsourcing employment verification liberates you from the administrative burden of this tedious task. In most in-house programs, employment verification is an administrative burden that is shared between departments and staff.
There is typically a significant turnaround time, limited hours of availability, and an inconsistency in what information is returned to verifiers. This coupled with competing priorities, leaves employees waiting for a response, as well as, unaware of what information has been provided on their behalf.
Don’t stress - there is a better way – and did we mention that with i2Verify, it’s actually a free service to employers and employees?
