Creating a network of trust and accountability for employers by offering real-time verifiable credentials
CALGARY, Alberta, Jan. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Credivera, a leader in workforce digital identity solutions, is pleased to announce a strategic partnership with Mintz Group, a global leader in investigative, due diligence and screening services to provide employers proof of workplace skills and certifications such as technical credentials, academic degrees and work experience in the form of verifiable credentials.
Credivera’s cloud-based technology collects and displays verifiable digital credentials using permissioned distributed ledger technology to maintain a real-time, secure record of workforce compliance. Credivera’s solutions use globally accepted standards to help leaders in more than 30 countries achieve their business goals associated with the maintenance of a verified workforce.
“Our clients are under more pressure than ever to source and onboard hard-to-find talent in an increasingly unpredictable environment. They need background verification services that enhance applicant privacy and accuracy while improving customer experience – thus resulting in better, faster outcomes for our clients. Mintz Group is committed to continuing to leverage next-generation technology to deliver results to our clients and their customers,” said Tim Whipple, Mintz Group Chief Executive Officer.
“We started working with Credivera in 2019,” said Dan Fallows, Executive Director of Mintz Global Screening. “Credivera transforms the way proof of people, products, and processes is provided. We were so impressed with Credivera’s vision that we approached Dan Giurescu, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Credivera, about a strategic partnership.”
“Through the issuance of verifiable credentials (VCs), Credivera ensures transparency and trustworthiness. VCs are traceable and verified by the organization that issued them, improving trust and accountability, reducing fraud, increasing security, and driving administrative efficiencies through improvements in workflow management,” said Dan Giurescu. “Leveraging the Credivera Network we can eliminate tedious back-and-forth communication between verifier services and the issuers of credentials removing a series of significant manual re-verifications, due to the nature of distributed ledger technology while creating a win, win, win for the issuer, worker, and verifier.”
The strategic partnership between Mintz and Credivera will combine the verification of workforce skills in highly regulated industries with verified background screening and increased confidence in hiring.
