IGS takes responsibility for the evaluation of the educational career and background verification of employees.
As part of the requirements at the time of application submission, candidates are asked to produce degrees of their education. IGS collects the necessary information about the degree and certificate of candidate or employee and runs a complete background verification check in order to make sure the certificates given by candidates are original, authentic and verified. The transcripts or certificates are the basic proof of the qualification of the employees and IGS makes sure that no forgery has taken place and employees have shared their authentic records with the organization they are linked with.
In addition to degree evaluation, IGS has another major responsibility. Evaluation of marks/grades/division. Why does it matter once the degree has been verified? The answer is simply to ensure maximum transparency. The modern age has devised incredible ways of forgery as well and we at IGS work meticulously to provide our clients maximum protection against fraud. Therefore, we run separate checks for marks and grade verification. We contact the respective educational institutions and report any mismatch (if found) to the client company for further action against the employee.
The educational background verification further includes the college enrollment record and year of passing. These details are important to us because our client company has made such details a part of the employment criteria and we have to evaluate these to ensure that the hiring of each employee is according to the declared principles. Also that no employee has hidden any record from the organization deliberately. IGS is determined to bring out the best employees for an organization and such hard evaluations are part of the procedure. These records show the history of the employees and help determine the organization how beneficial they would prove for the company.
Apart from the evaluations, one of the most significant jobs at IGS to create a transparent placement center where students, graduates, and interns are connected to several organizations and these interactions create jobs for the former. IGS offers both jobs and internships to the students according to the companies they want to apply for and their profile or portfolio. Since IGS is providing its own platform to professional interactions between companies and potential employees, it makes sure that the profile building of the employees is according to their verified qualifications and skills. The profile built at IGS platforms are verified and highly acknowledged by our client companies.
Background Verification or Check
It is imperative to hire a right and responsible person for an organization at any level. How to make a choice between right and wrong? Leave that to IGS. We, at IGS, ensure that the persons our client companies are hiring are not only perfect for the job but also beneficial for the organization and hold no record of being a threat to the company. For any successful endeavor, the choice of right team is significant and IGS ensures this possibility into a reality.
Background verification or checks are run on each candidate who applies for a position at our affiliated companies. These checks are common at organizations however, we assure you maximum results in minimum time with reliable analyses and authentic reports. You might wonder how do we manage such a huge responsibility? We agree it is huge. But we have a strong global network that allows us easy access to information around the globe and makes our verification processes much easier than they seem. These international connections work in mutual coordination with the common purpose of bringing transparency and merit in job markets globally.
The background screening is a vast domain and covers much of the significant information in itself. Hence, among all types of screening, background check is the most extensive one and demands IGS to contact maximum departments of the public and private sector. It might involve forwarding the employee’s or candidate’s personal information to law departments as well. All of this practice is done to ensure none of the information provided by the candidate or employee remains unchecked and eventually lead to any ambiguity about the employment of the said candidate. IGS gives maximum priority to the background check and shares its findings as to the final assessment report with the client company.
The background check includes family history, physical address, information about the neighborhood, previous employment record, criminal record, health history, and travel history. The addition of various other factors is possible on the demands of the client company. For some regions, drug history is a necessary part of the detailed health record but it changes from region to region. The screening of potential employees also adds the background check of any tenant history. Many organizations offer dorm facilities to their employees, it is especially significant for them. IGS has got it all covered for you.
The criminal record is as important to evaluate as the person himself. It is extremely necessary to check beforehand and the information acquired is always beneficial for the company or organization. More and more employers are becoming receptive to these checks because a Company whose employee is involved in a criminal act not only becomes liable monetarily but also finds its reputation in jeopardy. Even a seemingly minute crime can fire back at an employee as well as tarnish the reputation of the company to a level beyond imagination. One bad review is enough to question the credibility of the entire organization. IGS realizes the significance of the criminal check and uses all its resources to share the most authentic analysis with our client companies regarding their employees. Moreover, it is considered essential to conduct these checks in order to guard against workplace violence and employee theft. Yes, it is true. Without a proper criminal check, an organization or company can be readily infiltrated and such malignant elements can also disturb the internal balance of the organization before tarnishing the external image. IGS works with its affiliates to work out the maximum possible criminal checks well before the time of appointment of an employee or soon before the promotion of any employee to a more sensitive position as he is already in. However, as our country does not have a centralized criminal database with any agency, these checks are not very comprehensive. Nevertheless, our diligent and talented team still puts maximum efforts to maximize the safety of the organization as well as the safety of the employee from any kind of fraudulent. No matter how limited our resources be, we still ensure at IGS that no such individual with questionable criminal record passes through us and enters our affiliated companies and organizations.
The name of the reference check is self-explanatory in the recruitment process of companies and organizations. A reference check can include several steps. The employer could simply verify dates of employment and job titles and dates of attendance at college and the degree attained. An in-depth reference check will involve talking to references to gain insight into an applicant’s skills, qualifications, and abilities to do the job. IGS makes it super easy for affiliated companies because by running a detailed screening of the references online, the better and fast results are achieved than doing the same work manually. The reliable analyses of IGS enable the companies to make a decision about their employees based on reviews and feedback from past employment and work experience.
IGS carries out a detailed check of the references required by its own policy. Any change is also welcomed if demanded by the company who is doing the research about certain candidates or employees regarding a certain job through IGS. In the case of an in-depth check, your references can expect questions similar to those asked of job applicants during an interview. For example, they might be asked about the applicant’s strengths and weaknesses, the best qualities, ability to cope with stress, etc. We understand that the process of screening might be exhaustive or one might think that certain things are unnecessarily repeating. We guarantee you this is all for the screening purposes and we have worked diligently to make our system less redundant and we are sure our clients can no longer complain about things repeating unnecessarily even in the reference checks.
Why is there a need for a reference check? The employer wants to confirm that you have the employment history and qualifications you have stated on your resume or job application. Also, the employer will be interested in knowing your professional attitudes in the past company and decide your hiring in the new company on the basis of the previous record (if any). The company also wants to know if you have the right skills for the job and if you will fit in well with the organization. The importance of reference check in a company is vital at the time of hiring and IGS understands this importance well enough. That is the reason for a detailed yet accurate reference check against all candidates provided by the client company.
Address check has been a compulsory evaluation method being in used for a long time for any kind of registration, application and biodata form. It is considered among the basic information about a person and therefore, is always a mandatory requirement by all organizations. Naturally, it becomes even more significant when hiring an employee or running a background check on an employee. IGS is here to make your job easier and add residential address check a part of detailed screening of affiliated company’s employees or employees-to-be.
IGS observes few things while running an address check on an employee. The list includes present residential address, permanent address, postal address (if different from the previous two), telephone number, mobile phone number, street number, city and city postal code, number of places visited and how frequent the visits are, permanent resident certificate, NOC if a foreign citizen, etc. The length of the form to be filled for screening also depends upon the type of job a candidate has applied for or has secured. There are some sensitive professions for home address checks are very lengthy and troublesome but because IGS has electronic systems, nothing is a problem now. Every information you have once entered is stored in our system and hence we will not ask you to repeat again and again, Moreover, IGS takes the record from the original legal documents also and once the document is scanned and sent to IGS one does not need to give separate input of the document already scanned and sent. Our system generates and draws necessary information about your residence address automatically. IGS system has much improved since last few months and we have moved ahead of our beta version hence your information is safe with us.
Drug test is a specific test while there is another general health test. IGS carries out both of these tests. Again, in some companies due to sensitivity of job or top-tier positions at organizations, drug check of employees and potential employees becomes mandatory. IGS critically processes employees’ history to check for any evidence of drug abuse or an incident involving drugs. This analysis is further examined and sent to client companies.
IGS has a list of drugs against which we run a detailed check for all the employees in our lists. The list of drugs is given as:
- Cannabis (marijuana)
- PCP (Phencyclidine)
If a record or history is found against any of the above-mentioned records, IGS will send an alert report to the client company and it can further proceed with the case as per regulations of the organization or company. Not only this, this record stays with IGS system and can be used in the future for any other company if the same candidate appears on our database.
Drug test is carried out and analyzed by local hospitals and IGS drug test laboratories are recommended because they give the analyses and updates directly through online system. The test may be carried in following options upon doctor’s advice and analyzed for any contamination or inconsistencies:
5 panel urine test
10 panel urine test
15 panel urine test
Add-on alcohol test
IGS allows 24/7 access to your reports and highly encourages clients to contact us in case of any ambiguity although our systems are interactive and user-friendly enough that clients might not find any need to directly contact the team of IGS.
Tenant verification is one of the important checks for client companies done by IGS.

IGS provides tenant screening for our client companies as well as part of detailed background verification or check for their job applicants hence potential employees. Pre-employment screening is incomplete without complete tenant history of the individual under assessment. His past records of rental bills and overall experience of renting is made a part of our report that we send to our client companies. Any evidence of misconduct in tenant history can result in disqualification on the grounds of irresponsibility and lack of reliability for jobs that are sensitive.

Database check is the most popular background verification or check run before hiring employees these days. It’s globally popular because it is ever more efficient than the conventional methods. As per national laws, we at IGS inform our clients about this mandatory practice and take explicit consent from job applicants before proceeding with a background verification. Hence organizations must inform and take consent from job applicants prior to conducting checks in order to abide by the privacy laws and legal usage of personal information of applicants.
Since the presence of personal and private information, most databases are confidential information that is not available easily.
