Welcome to 2014 and the launch of the Onfido Blog. For those of you who don’t know, we’re a London-based tech company founded in 2012 with the aim of disrupting the background checking industry. Isis Innovation and Oxford University liked our vision and dug deep into their pockets to fund our project. Since then, our team has built a great product and started working with some of the UK’s largest employers to help them make fast, informed decisions on who they can trust.
Our goal with this blog is to be as transparent as possible to our readers and users, and provide you with information that is factual, interesting, insightful, and maybe even sparks a bit of controversy at times! Every week or so we’ll be posting here with a range of stories, observations and tips on recruitment and screening best practices. We’ll publish original content such as infographics which analyse the data we generate about employment screening practices. And finally, we’ll be sharing with you our learnings and experiences as we grow, as well as broader updates from the background checking and technology ecosystem. We hope you enjoy it and find it useful, and if there’s anything in particular you’d like us to discuss, please drop us a line.
