AssuredID - Digital candidate verification
Digital hiring is the future. From 1st October 2022, employers either have to recruit face to face or rely on a system like AssuredID to prevent the need for hiring face to face. AssuredID allows UK employers to hire remotely in a compliant way. At Reed Screening, we supported the change to digital right to work, featuring alongside Ministers in the Home Office press release.
We know how important it is to be sure that you’ve verified the identities and right to work of potential employees, whether that’s remotely or in person.
With our market-leading AssuredID digital candidate screening, you can now verify candidates’ identities and right to work digitally with confidence, minimise risk and streamline your processes, all in one go.
The new world of right to work checks
No-one knows the new right to work regime as well as we do, after five years campaigning for a digital solution.
Reed Screening sits on the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on right to work and digital identity in Parliament, and also advises on the UK's labour market strategy. Reed held four Parliamentary events, submitted three Parliamentary questions, and a briefing to Number 10 to help bring about important changes to right to work.
At Home Office, our director Keith is a member of Employers Cooperating with the Home Office (ECHO), instrumental in changing right to work legislation in December 2018. Reed were the only organisation mentioned in the Ministerial press release announcing the revolutionary changes to digital right to work.
AssuredID is built with the latest policy developments in mind, and is designed to help you achieve the highest level of compliance with current and future legislative requirements. Developed by experts in biometrics, identity documentation, and right to work legislation, AssuredID will provide you with accurate, reliable identity and right to work verification that meets even the most stringent standards.
Trust contact-free screening for accurate digital ID checks
With AssuredID, our government certified technology, verifying an individual’s identity and right to work remotely is a simple process. The system uses the candidate’s smartphone to capture document and biometric information and confirm that the documents your employee presents are both valid and their own.
Our cutting-edge technology increases the accuracy of ID verification, streamlines processes, and reduces the risk to your business. With AssuredID as part of your pre-employment screening checks you can be sure your employees are who they say they are and have legitimate right to work in the UK, giving you confidence in the outcome of any further background checks.
Don't leave your business open to fraud
Working remotely has many advantages. Not only can remote working increase efficiency and reduce business outlay for office space, but the ability to hire new employees based anywhere in the world can open up new possibilities for businesses who struggle to fill in-demand roles.
However, remote recruitment is not without its risks. Reviewing identity and right to work documents digitally can be a challenge, leaving companies open to the risk of identity fraud when conducting right to work or other pre-employment screening checks. The compliance issues that may result could cause a serious impact on your business performance, leaving you open to reputational damage or even legal liability.
