How does it work?

The first step is to understand your specific needs. This can be verification of one candidate’s education credentials, a detailed verification of an executive for a key position and a repeatable screening service for a recruiting of an entire organisation.

The BackCheck usually involves the following steps:

  1. Clarifying your needs and the scope of the BackCheck.
  2. Providing the details about the candidate(s)
  3. Obtaining the consent from the candidates (note: compliance with legal requirements)
  4. Conducting the BackCheck and verification.
  5. Providing the report to you.

For complex or delicate questions about board composition or even the systemic fit of candidates we provide specialized advisory services with industry expertise.

Please contact us for details.

Why use BackCheck services?

When you are responsible and liable for providing services with care and confidentiality it is important to know who is the person you are working with. BackChecks are an easy and prudent way to prevent problems. The cost of a BackCheck is minimal compared to the risk of loosing a customer, your reputation or even facing a litigation.
