Across the Globe: How Prembly is bridging the gap with Background Checks in Emerging Markets 


As the world develops and strengthens interconnectedness, verification, which has long been important, becomes an even more crucial tool in all parts of the world to ensure candidates are properly vetted before absorption into the work and education system.

Countries like the US are reported to say that over 90% of businesses now report that they perform at least one background check on their candidates. Meanwhile, conducting background checks in Africa presents peculiar challenges, such as limited centralized data, access to reliable databases, turnaround time, and differences in educational and institutional systems. For instance, language differences are notable, as Africa is the continent with the second-highest number of different languages.

The objective of background check services is to gather relevant information on individuals and companies, assisting global companies in evaluating the background and business reputation of third parties, which is crucial in maintaining their business value and brand reputation.
