Verifying employment history is an essential part of the pre-employment checks conducted on new workers in almost all industries.
Employment history nowadays consist only of factual data usually name, dates of employment and job title and sometimes the reason for leaving can be included.
Providing or requesting the verification of employment history has always been a manual and time heavy task that requires input from both a new employer and the previous employer(s).
The new employer has to contact the previous employer(s) and they have to find, verify and provide the record (employment reference).
This current process presents two issues:
- The new employer has to directly contact the previous employer(s) to verify the information and has to wait for them to provide which, in a lot of cases can cause delays in the pre-employment checks process of a new employee, particularly when it comes to regulated industries.
- The previous employer(s) HR teams have to fulfill reference requests that are out of their control, which requires time and resources.
We believe this should be much easier and that’s why we’ve created the Fluxible Network, a private shared database of employment history.
It is a very simple exchange in that organisations share their employment history data of their personnel to the network and in return, get instant access to every other member’s personnel employment history data.
Through a simple search, member’s can access the verified employment history of individuals with information held on Fluxible. They can access and instantly download a fully auditable reference for their own records.
“We’re really excited to be bringing the Fluxible Network to the market. Pre-employment checks, particularly in regulated industries, causes considerable delays and business interruptions.
Whilst we know there are so many other contributing factors that affect this issue, such as background checks including right to work, criminal records checks etc. This is our first step in our mission to provide verified employment data for the world’s workforce and make it easily accessible.
We started Fluxible because we had experienced, first hand the plethora of issues in involved in the recruitment process and although we’ve slightly deviated from our initial plans, we’re confident in our value proposition to the market and have a great team to deliver it.”
