Due Diligence

Acquiring a company or investing in companies is a very sensitive and risky process. An audit of the company (ie due diligence) almost always deals with the company’s finances and legal status. We believe that controlling the key people in the company is just as important.

Valida’s experience is not only that you can find crucial information, but much of the information is of the nature that you get to know the person in a better way not just from a risk perspective. It is especially important at these times that people should reinvest in the company.

That’s how it works

Based on you and the company’s situation, we create together with your risk profile. The purpose of the risk profile is to identify and highlight current risks, but also to lay the groundwork for what information we need to obtain in the current assignment so as not to process more information than necessary about your candidate.

It helps us to make accurate and balanced analysis of the information, we give you recommendations and suggestions based on the information we have collected.

We are always there for you as a support, we help you evaluate the information we have produced and we advise on how you can continue dialogue with the candidate about how any question marks can be rectified.

We adjust the scope of information gathering in the following areas: personnel, personal financial situation, legal matters, representative assignments, social media and other media exposure as well as verification of education and previous positions.

Additional services

Depending on the position, it is also possible to add additional modules for deeper analysis, eg assessment of:

risks affecting economy and brand
risks that sensitive information may leak or be sold
historical and / or current business network
legal / formal risks

What happens next?

We always provide a report where we together evaluate the information, high light and advice on any risks we have found.

We think the word background checks may be one of the most misunderstood words in the Swedish HR industry. The most common misconception is that background checks are the same as a control against a police register or a credit check. It is so far from the truth that one can come.

The customers we have worked with over the last few years often think that they know what kind of background control they want to do, but after we have discussed, the assignment often has become something else.
