Address verification

The importance of knowing and verifying the address of your prospective employees cannot be overemphasized. Knowing the precise address and whereabouts of your employees builds trust and confidence.

Address Checks are crucial due to the high rate of criminality that is being recorded in the workplaces. Address verification helps to track employees in case of misconduct or fraud. It helps the police investigation to take off smoothly. It also builds trust and confidence between employers and the employees.

Proquest offers the following address Checks

Temporary Address

It is the present place the applicant is staying. It can also be referred to as a temporary correspondence address. It may be a hostel, relative or friend’s address or a rented apartment. Temporary addresses are handled carefully to determine the authenticity. There are many factors used by our trained personnel to determine the authenticity of all the addresses submitted by job applicants and prospective employees.

Temporary addresses are confirmed through a physical check visit by the field executive to establish the veracity of the address details provided by the candidate in his/her resume to the prospective employer. The following below information is collected at the time of address checks:

• Is the candidate staying at the address as mentioned by him/her
• Duration of stay
• Type of accommodation
• Details of individual who confirmed the information and
• Standing in the locality

Permanent Address

This usually refers to the address used for contact and communication. It is the address that appears in government documents like driving licence, voter ID card, national ID card and passport. The candidates that are away from home often make use of their parent’s residential address as their permanent address. This address is more reliable than temporary address that is subjected to a sudden change. We elicit the below information during the physical check visit:
