Remote and hybrid work can pose significant IDV headaches; you need to know that an employee is the same person who completed the application process. The consequences of a failure can be significant, ranging from theft of equipment and data to regulatory breaches. 

So how can you make IDV work for your staffing firm? How do you combine security with convenience?

Veriff works across sensitive industries around the globe, from finance to gambling. In the staffing/HR sector, for example, we have partnered with Deel, an all-in-one, software-as-a-service (SaaS) HR platform that aims to simplify every aspect of global HR, ranging from culture and onboarding to local payroll and compliance. 

In the five years since its founding in 2018 it has grown to a firm that provides solutions to more than 15,000 businesses around the world, including brands like Nike, Red Bull and Calvin Klein. 

As part of its offering, Deel had to conduct KYC checks. These were required to verify the identity of employees as they were onboarded or paid by Deel clients.

Before working with Veriff, Deel primarily completed these KYC reviews manually. However, when weekly KYC volumes surpassed 25 people, the staffing specialist needed an automated solution that could robustly and efficiently scale with the business. 

Through our partnership, Deel has added a crucial layer of security and safety to its online platform. Veriff’s IDV software means Deel can swiftly verify people worldwide for its clients. What’s more, it can automatically detect false or manipulated documents, protecting against fraud. 

The Veriff approach makes things simple – but secure – for job candidates:

  • Take a photo of ID: The user simply takes a quick snap of their ID document, with more than 11,300 government-issued IDs supported in over 230 countries. The user is guided through the process with real-time feedback, meaning they don’t have to enter data manually. 
  • Take a selfie: The candidate then takes a selfie with the support of our Assisted Image Capture (AIC) technology. 
  • Receive a decision: The process takes place in a matter of seconds, allowing recruitment firms to quickly identify and approve job candidates.

Veriff’s approach deploys sophisticated algorithms and tools, such as device and network indicators. Such technologies enable us to analyze over 1,000 data points, assessing risk factors and detecting threats like fraud.  

Our technological advantage is built on a team of in-house, highly trained specialists from over 60 nations, who support, investigate and resolve any queries with identity documents or face scans. However, the final decision is always made by our automated process, minimizing any danger of subjectivity or bias. 

Through partnering with Veriff, staffing specialists like Deel can adapt to the changing world of work, building scale without friction. IDV doesn’t just build security. It is a vital platform to build your reputation – and your business.
