Jumio said it will integrate its online identity verification technologies into Engage’s cloud-based recruitment solutions.
UK recruiters are now faced with compulsory right to work checks are a compulsory, meaning employers now need to see original identity documents, check that the documents are valid with the applicant present, make and retain copies of the documents and record the date the check was made. This manual process can be time-consuming for hiring companies and exposes them to potential data breaches and GDPR scrutiny.
The integration will enable Engage to verify passports, ID cards, biometric residence permits and other forms of identification from over 200 countries automatically to verify workers’ eligibility and actual identity.
Workers receive an email or text message invitation to provide their ID and right to work documentation via unique URLs, linking them to the Engage platform, where they can upload or use a camera to take pictures of their documents and of themselves.
The automated verification process is then run by Jumio’s Netverify solution. As a PCI-DSS compliant solution, Jumio is also helping Engage meet the stringent data protection and privacy requirements of GDPR.
“Jumio is excited to integrate our online identity verification solutions into Engage’s recruitment workflow to help automate and streamline the right to work verification checks,” said Stephen Stuut, CEO of Jumio.
“Our leading identity verification solutions, which leverage biometrics, AI, machine learning, liveness detection and verification experts, are designed to definitively assess whether someone is who they claim to be. Integrating this technology for right to work checks and Engage’s end-to-end recruitment software will help Engage vet new workers quickly, securely and compliantly.”
Jumio recently added FaceTec`s ZoOm 3D Face Liveness Detection to its online identity verification suite. The company said ZoOm’s capabilities improve the security, speed and user experience for liveness detection of new users. It will provide an additional layer of assurance and fraud prevention for digital businesses during the account creation process.
Last year, Jumio was hand-picked by a panel of industry experts for the RegTech 100, a list of companies that every financial institution should know about in 2018. The RegTech 100 is part of the Global RegTech review – an essential, in-depth analysis of the global RegTech market.
The RegTech also recently partnered with Monzo to verify new users and support Know-Your-Customer (KYC) requirements. The digital challenger bank said it will use Jumio’s Netverify Trusted Identity as a Service (TIaaS) to help verify customers who are moving from its prepaid card service to a full current account.
