Authblue is an online marketplace that links users and enterprises to companies that complete background screening and verifying of blue-collar workers, and is DIPP-registered.
From drivers and delivery personnel to domestic help and cooks – there is ever increasing demand for blue-collar workers. Moreover, hiring is mostly ad-hoc, and most of it is through word-of-mouth and driven by who can join work the earliest.
This, however, may not be the safest way to find an employee. According to a report published by NCRB (National Crimes Records Bureau), Ministry of Home Affairs, in 2016, the number of crimes in residential complexes and homes were reportedly on the rise due to lack of proper authentication of domestic help.
“This isn’t just restricted to homes. With the growing gig economy, even businesses believe there is a need for verification,” says Sujeet Buddiga, Co-founder of Authblue.
To help people verify blue-, and even white-collar workers, Authblue was set up in Hyderabad in 2018. Founded by 28-year-old Sujeet Buddiga and 33-year-old Saurabh Tiwari, the DIPP-recognised startup’s platform helps connect businesses and individuals with companies that conduct verifications. A team of five, the company has clients from across the country registered on its platform.
