Problem you are trying to solve: To restore accountability and professionalism in interactions between the employers and the employees at the time of hiring.
Employee recruitment has become an increasingly frustrating exercise with a lot of wasted effort. Individuals often lie and deceive with impunity. After spending enormous time and effort in selecting the applicants who fit their needs, the employers are not sure if those recruits will eventually report to work even after "accepting" the job offer. These recruits use the first job-offer letter as a leverage to get other offers for a higher salary from other "desperate" employers. Employees not infrequently leave soon after joining if they get another “more lucrative” job offer.
Verimployee is an “Accountability-Mechanism” that records promises employees and employers make to each other during the recruitment process and follows up to see if those promises were honored. This information is available on a need to know basis to future employers only with explicit consent of the employee. Verimployee enables the employers and the employees to “formalize” their commitments to each other by registering their agreement on its platform. It also follows up and records whether the employee left within 3 months of joining. Future potential employers can request job-applicants to authorize Verimployee to provide access to this information during the recruitment process.
