India’s New Digital Law and Improving Candidate Experience
With the rise of new digital technologies, the background screening process is transforming. According to a survey by HireRight, in 2023, 86% of respondents from India said they often found employment discrepancies and 43% commonly found education discrepancies.
Despite the lack of digital public records, 9 in 10 employers from India that utilise background screening are conducting education and employment checks as part of their screening programs. Three-quarters of the respondents from India said that speed was an important factor when choosing a screening provider.
But companies need to be ready for new guardrails that are being implemented too. India’s new Digital Personal Data Protection Bill 2022 is expected to be tabled in Parliament in the Monsoon Season, and it is expected to frame laws on the processing of digital personal data.

This webinar is designed to give you an expert's view on how automation is the newest shift that could ease and transform the background screening process.
