Employee pre-Employment Screening

Last week I gave a presentation to AmCham Ho Chi Minh City and Am Cham HaNoi about pre-employment screening.  Over 100 people attended both sessions showing that there is an interest in this topic in Viet Nam.

At HR2B our screening service is designed to aggregate all legally available information about a person (with their consent) for the purpose of verifhying what the person has told us and the employer about their education and work experiences.
The way we do this is;

  • Contact directly to the educational institution to verify the university qualification;
  • Contact the previous employers HR to verify dates, job title and salary,
  • Contact directly to the previous employers line manager to verify achievements and personality factors
The report normally takes between 10 and 30 days to complete.  The slowest piece of information comes from the educational institutions.  Our staff have good relations with the larger universities in Ho Chi Minh City and HaNoi which speeds things up, however in other cities it may take some time.

The benefits to our customers of verification are;
  • one more channel of information about a person
  • minimize risk of making a poor recruitment
  • encourages all candidates to disclose truthful information.
