Disruptive Hiring: Onfido’s Technology Checks Out With Top Investors
Global companies are increasingly reliant on the services of on-demand contractors. They need to hire fast, but are often held up by background checking processes that are bureaucratic, slow and expensive to use. So, disruptive technology that renders cumbersome processes obsolete will naturally attract the business of clients, and for the entrepreneurs behind the technology, the attention and the cash of heavyweight investors from the worlds of technology, HR and the sharing economy. That is exactly what Onfido, a tech startup has just done. Onfido’s technology allows the thousands of companies to carry out global, remote verification on the workers that use their platforms. It can run background checks on everything from identity checks to criminal checks, overhauling the cumbersome paper-based process.
