The Workforce Solutions team is being recognized in the Tech category for their Talent Report Education submission, underscoring the company’s innovation in pre-employment verifications and helping drive value to HR.
Research shows a staggering 80 percent of job candidates who falsify or omit critical information on their resumes are hired, and 44 percent of those job candidates that falsify or omit critical information, misrepresent their educational background. Talent Report Education helps HR more thoroughly verify a candidate’s education history and help enable more informed hiring decisions by delivering all available postsecondary degrees covering 99 percent of universities¹ nationally through an exclusive integration with National Student Clearinghouse®. Because all available postsecondary education information on a candidate is returned in a single report, Talent Report Education provides a more holistic candidate view that helps HR departments and background screeners better detect omissions and help reduce the risk of academic fraud.
The Ragan’s Platinum HR Awards recognizes the people, the programs and the products that are dedicated to driving HR success for their organizations, employees and clients. Winners will be announced at the award ceremony in Chicago on August 17.
