Innovative Enterprises Launches Validate-IE™ Enhanced Employment Validation Solution

Oct 07, 2010, 16:22 ET from Innovative Enterprises, Inc.

NEWPORT NEWS, Va., Oct. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovative Enterprises, Inc., a strategic partner to the background screening industry and expert provider of court research information products, smart data solutions and ancillary services, today announced the official launch of Validate-IE™, an enhanced employment validation solution capable of discovering previous employers that job applicants may have failed to disclose.

Research by the Society for Human Resource Management suggests that more than 53% of job applicants falsify information on their resumes.  Traditional methods of verifying previous employment rely upon the applicant to self-disclose their employment history, making it all-too-easy for candidates to omit employers they may not want you to know about.  Validate-IE™ returns both employment and salary information directly from the Internal Revenue Service as reported on the applicant's W-2s, usually within 48 to 72 hours.

"The headlines are filled with embarrassing revelations of high-profile individuals who have embellished their resumes," commented Clifford J. Williams, Innovative's Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.  "While it's positive news that the majority of employers are now doing some level of pre-employment background screening, relying on the applicant to self-report their histories clearly ignores the statistics.  We recognize the inherent limitations of this approach and are very excited to offer Validate-IE™ to the market as our solution to this problem.  We believe that Validate-IE™ will fundamentally change the way that employment verification is accomplished."

Validate-IE™ is not sold directly to employers but is instead available through Innovative's carefully-selected network of Screening Industry Partners™.
