How does your solution work?

Our solution provides a platform that will allow registered users in Nigeria to document their domestic staff as well as record their professional and personal interactions with them. This data would be available in a search by prospective employers, who will then have access to the applicant’s past job history, conduct, health and performance evaluations.

We trust that when job history and records follow staff where ever they seek employment, they will be incentivized to provide good service and demonstrate good behavior. A good record will enable them to be hired while a bad record will prevent them from gaining employment with another family.

The National Identity Number (NIN) is critical to our use at for the following reasons:

  • It is our Nigerian equivalent of a Social Security Number (SSN). The NIN uniquely identifies a person in Nigeria. It is associated with stringent biometric data collection by the National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) and can be verified against the NIMC database to ensure authenticity before it is used on our platform.
  • It discourages child labor, and CheckMyPeople does not support the use of child labor as domestic staff.
  • Insisting on the use of NIN in our system, ensures that only age eligible candidates are registered on our system (18+). Please follow us @checkmypeople on Instagram
