Who are you really hiring? It’s a question that nags at executives and HR professionals, especially in an age when more people are interviewing and working remotely. Certn gives companies state-of-the-art tools to verify identities and conduct background screening of potential employees – including criminal, credit, and employment checks. Using AI to access data from more than 200,000 sources in 200 countries, Certn empowers employers to screen with efficiency (often in just minutes) and hire with confidence despite the evolving labour landscape. “The world of work has shifted and business owners need to get on board,” says CEO Andrew McLeod. It’s all about using innovative technology to build trust in people in the modern workplace – and beyond. Indeed, Certn recently integrated its software with the platform of Wilma, a new ride-hailing service that’s focused on passenger and driver safety for women and gender-diverse individuals.
