Are you a recruiter who would like to check the facts in your candidate’s CVs?

Would you like to verify your candidate’s international degrees in agreement with international data protection regulations?

Are you looking for a smart digital PES-solution, which focusses on candidate experience?

SIGNUM Consulting covers all of this and much more. As independent service providers our PES-analysts examine the candidate data that is relevant, abiding by EU-GDPR and international data protection legislation.

The pre-employment screening takes place only if the candidate consents to it and the whole process is absolutely transparent.

As a consequence, PES builds a solid foundation of trust.

CV and self-description on business-networks are self-declarations. Using PES-instruments the qualifications of candidates can be verified objectively and challenges of the international labour market e.g., internationally varying degree titles, are met appropriately. Furthermore, with your recruitment decisions you as a recruiter contribute important values to your company and ensure the compliance with rules and laws in regard to the due diligence of your employer. In a nutshell – PES brings many advantages:

  • Objective examination of education and career steps
  • Verification of digital documents
  • Save time on plausibility check
  • Remote (contactless), quick procedure
  • Examine integrity via compliance checks
  • Proof of employee checks for audits, TISAX (Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange) and ISO27001
