“Digital identity checks offer benefits to candidates and employers,” says Yoti Chief Commercial Officer John Abbott. “They are quicker, more convenient, and support remote working practices – which have become the norm for many. With less paperwork, stronger security and a better recruitment experience, the benefits of digital identity verification are clear.”

Yoti and its partner the Post Office are certified for background checks in the UK for work and other purposes under the Digital Identity and Attributes Trust Framework.
