Verifications & References

Studies show that more than 50% of applications and résumés contain false information. GIS helps you hire the best possible employees with our in-house verifications experts, extensively trained to get you the information you need to make the right hiring decision.

Employment Verification

GIS checks previous employers' records and conducts interviews with past supervisors and Human Resources to obtain a comprehensive evaluation of work history and capabilities. Information obtained can include dates of employment, job position, reason for leaving and eligibility for rehire. We can work off a standard question base or work with you to customize a specific question set. GIS also provides DOT-compliant and industry-specific employment verifications.

Education Verification

GIS contacts the educational institution to confirm education, including dates of attendance, degrees or credentials received and if any honors were attached to the degree.

Military Verification

On your organization's behalf, GIS will send a written request for an official copy of an individual's DD214 to verify military record (including military branch and dates of service).

Personal & Professional Reference Checks

GIS can contact both business and personal references to obtain a more subjective look than provided from the employment verification. Reference checks can help you confirm personal qualities such as dependability, integrity, character, and work ethic.

Professional License & Certification Verification

Based on the information provided by the applicant, we can contact the appropriate state agencies and verify the type of certification, the issuing state or agency and the date of issuance and expiration. We can also provide details on comments, honors, or actions related to the certification.
