Academic record verification
Hiring a well-educated, well-trained workforce can be key to any company's success and future growth. Crystal Screening services ensures you’re hiring the right candidates to meet these goals. Typical education verifications look at candidate’s high school, undergraduate, graduate and post-graduate degrees. We make sure that your potential new-hire actually has the educational background necessary to perform well in their new role.
Because of the large number of job applicants make false educational claims. Education Verifications are a valuable honesty check which protects an employer against negligent hiring claims. An Education Verification confirms that the education, training or certification claims of an applicant are true. It includes the verification of year of passing the school/universities/boards etc. and graduation, degrees or certifications obtained, majors studied, honors received etc. We also run checks to determine whether your new employees have the professional licenses required for certain positions. Along with confirming an applicant's competency within a specific field, these checks give you legal protection in cases where a specific license is required by law. All verifications are undertaken at the primary source such as the school/universities/institutes/Boards etc.
Employment record verification
Employment history verification is essential for many reasons. More than 25% of resumes contain false details of work experience. Candidates may lie on their resume to cover up previous employment problems, and even periods of imprisonment that they obviously do not want to reveal in an application for a new job. With the proliferation of fake employment certificates are being used to leverage higher salaries and, for many unfortunate companies, has led to public embarrassment and damage to reputation. Organizations are obliged not only by law, but morally, to make as sure as you possibly can that your employees are not harmed through your employment of an unsuitable candidate. We validate the information provided by the candidate with respect to his previous employment. This validation includes designation, tenure of employment, nature of exit and CTC (cost to the company). Crystal Screening services not only verifies the typical information like designation, tenure of employment, nature of exit and CTC but also seeks for the information on the others factors like also candidate’s duties, behavior, performance, eligibility to rehire and emphasis on comprehensive data set to illustrate whether the candidate actually has the skills and experience necessary to perform well in the position you’re hiring for.
Crystal screening services also provides the service of company verification. Sometimes it happens that the candidate gives experience certificate of very small companies which might be fake and not existing. To rely on such companies might be dangerous. Thus, in such cases we verify about that company whether it is genuinely existing or is fake. Crystal screening services also provides the services of GAP check (i.e. verifying the reason given by the candidate for the large gap between two employments (if any).
It’s important to keep in mind that verifying a candidate’s employment history can save you from potential problems down the road.
Address validation is the process of checking, address details (permanent/current address/previous address) given by the candidate against an authoritative database and physical verification to see if the address is valid. It is important to know the whereabouts of a person in order to have full confidence in his/her credentials. As a first point for querying in case of absenteeism, disciplinary issues, or any violations. There have been cases reported of employees who go missing after defaulting with customer accounts. Address verification will not only prevent such misgivings but also be useful in tracking down such defaulters. We conduct this check through a field officer’s visit to the mentioned address and verify the address details, the tenure of stay, the ownership status and details of other members residing there. If in case the door is found locked / address incomplete, we go ahead and verify the details from people residing in the neighborhood /nearby courier & post office.
Address verification can be conducted for both Permanent and current address.
Permanent address is the legal address of an individual where she/he is a registered resident with his/her name. Permanent address appears in government documents like voter id card, ration card, driving license, and passport. Many people, who stay away from home, use their parents’ house as their permanent address. Therefore, permanent address is also defined as an address where the applicant receives official documents and correspondence.
Current address may be permanent and temporary correspondence location. Temporary address is where an individual is residing with a friend or a relative, or where she/he has rented an accommodation or is a paying guest, or can also be a post office box where she/he has rented a postal box where any correspondence to him/her is delivered. As temporary address is not considered a reliable piece of information as far as security is concerned, permanent address verification holds more value.
We ensure that the address and the address proof submitted by the candidate to the organization are factually right or not and if it is wrong then we will also provide the correct address of the candidate (if found during search).
Criminal record verification
Criminal verification entails checking a person's criminal history to assess his or her trustworthiness. It is not practically possible for the HR executives to screen through all the applicants for criminal record. An individual’s criminal history should be taken into consideration while hiring. Their history should be known to ensure the organization can weigh risk and comply with company policies to make the most educated decision. Criminal background checks are not generally available to public. Crystal Screening Services verifies whether any case has been filed against the name of the candidate in the police station records court of law for any court record pertaining to criminal or civil litigation and ensures the information as accurate and actionable.
A Criminal search provides a safe workplace for employees and the public, Avoid or defend negligent hiring law suits, Protect company’s reputation and protect the organization’s assets from inappropriate factors. In past few years, courts in India have adopted the practice of digitizing records which are both reliable and true. Criminal background checks are carried out through all-inclusive litigation searches of court records involving civil or criminal cases. The data is collected from the information dispersed by the various courts (like District Civil Courts & Tribunals/ High Courts/ Supreme Court/ Magistrate Court/ District Court/ State Courts etc./ Criminal Suit Magistrate Court/ Criminal Suit District Court/ Criminal Suit State Court)

Character & reference verification
Many organizations don’t perform reference checks as they feel it as unnecessary and just a formality. However, the fact is that with up to 30 percent of resumes containing exaggerated or inaccurate information. Denying to conduct a reference check can be costly. A complete reference check is important. Which makes sure that the candidate is reliable or not. It’s a measurement of factors other than employment details which are relevant for hiring completely reliable candidate. Reference checks do more than just measure and report on a person's technical skills
Reference verification is related to length of professional relationship, work related strengths & weaknesses, subject’s job and the nature of duties, follow through, initiative, leadership, dependability, reason for termination, team interaction, person's technical skills, propensity for violence or dishonesty and hire-ability.
With rapidly growing technology, identity verification in real-time is becoming must. Identity theft accounts for about 40% of the criminal cases in India. Without identity verification, organizations’, financial institutions and government bodies find themselves victims of frauds, thefts and other major crimes because the person becomes untraceable without actual identity. An identity verification company authenticates the national IDs of the individual such as Voter’s ID, Passport, driving license, and so on, and very whether the person furnishing the documents is the person who he claims to be.
A lot of cases in past have come into light, where criminals portray themselves to be the representatives of any prestigious universities or companies and who claim to offer college seats or jobs for money. These identity thieves are a threat to the safety and well-being of individuals & mass. Identity check can protect individuals and businesses from these threats and help authenticate the real identity of individuals and organization’s.

Screening of vendor is a standard business practice that is followed across the world. This is a mechanism that makes companies possible to screen and monitor the processes of a vendor and ensure that the vendors adhere to the guidelines of vendor risk management.

Doing so can help you preserve brand integrity and business continuity, while protecting against lawsuits, fines and other undesirable consequences of a regulatory violation.
