The leader of reference checking in Luxembourg

Exaggeration of duties and responsibilities, untrue or hidden information has become a common practice in the employment market.

A growing demand from companies was observed in the past years and the benefit of conducting effective reference checks thanks to a tailored method has been highly valuable for employers.

Background Check allows companies to secure their recruitment processes by gaining greater insights from their candidates’ qualifications, experiences and attitude in a professional environment.

Background Check is involved in pre-/post- employment periods to manage and oversee the background check program and verify the information provided in the CV of potential/newly-hired candidates. The process consists in ensuring the accuracy of information provided in a CV by a candidate who is involved in a recruitment process.

What can be checked?

Career path

Attitude and behaviour

Key indicators

A file validated by Background Check means that all the information given in the CV has been 100% verified and confirmed.
When a file is found not to be validated, the most frequently reported cases (around 40%) are linked to inconsistencies in the information and activities available online.

This was followed by dates of employment, which were found to be incorrect in 21% of cases. Then there were 10% discrepancies between the job titles shown on the CVs and those given by the former employers.

Finally, 8% of the incorrect records were due to errors in the diplomas (not obtained, wrong title, wrong dates, etc.).
