February 7, 2023 – Hillsboro, Ore.Q5id, Inc. and Express Employment Professionals are joining forces to prove job candidates’ identities during the pre-employment process with Q5id’s latest product, Know Your Employee (KYE), a fast and frictionless employee identity proofing solution. The patented solution helps eliminate identity fraud and protects employers, employees, clients, and reputations by proving potential employees are who they say they are before hiring them.

Express Employment Professionals is leading the charge to combat employee identity fraud by enhancing their industry-leading workforce solutions and candidate recruitment process with the Know Your Employee (KYE) platform by Q5id. This identity proofing solution can also detect deepfake spoofing, synthetic use, and even the use of general ID theft, which would prevent a job applicant from obtaining a verified Proven Identity. In less than three minutes, Express Employment Professionals job applicants will receive their Proven Identity using Q5id’s simple, safe, and secure process.

“Applicants only need to prove their identity once and will never need a password to access their personal Proven Identity for future employment opportunities with Express Employment Professionals,” says Q5id chairman and CEO Steve Larson. “The applicant remains in complete control of their identity with KYE by Q5id. We look forward to our new partnership with Express Employment Professionals bringing the benefits of proven identity to their clients, franchisees, and job applicants,” says Steve.

Founded in 1983, Express annually employs more than half a million people across 850 franchise locations worldwide and has put more than 9 million people to work. Their long-term goal is at the heart of the company’s vision, to help as many people as possible find good jobs by helping as many clients as possible find good people.

“We believe this partnership with Q5id is a critical step in our already rigorous candidate screening process and provides an added layer of security to protect employers and job applicants from identity fraud,” says Laura L. Moore, owner of Express Employment Professionals in Hillsboro, OR.
