As Founder and CEO, Bobby has incubated the ideas behind Verity and driven them from conception to launch. Bobby continuously leverages his deep technical background combined with his solid project management and leadership track record to devise, design, manage and deliver innovative solutions.

Verity is a powerful platform that allows you to share fully anonymous, constructive feedback about the people you work with and to have you validate other peoples’ feedback of those same employees. You can share your insights on your colleagues to empower them with feedback to genuinely improve themselves and provide organizations and recruiters with credible, reliable, and meaningful feedback about the people they hire. You can also view all feedback submitted about you and explore key metrics on how others perceive you as a colleague.
Verity strongly encourages feedback that is open, honest, direct, and constructive. While any length of feedback is welcome, it is most beneficial when the feedback relates specific experiences with examples, both positive and where improvement is needed, of working with your colleague. Be supportive and provide constructive feedback that can position your colleague to take immediate and specific steps to improve their skills and address any issues you disclose.
Yes. People can submit feedback about anyone they wish, regardless of whether they are presently colleagues or worked together in the past. They also do not need to be registered in order to submit a review. However only registered users can corroborate or disagree with a previously submitted review about you.
Unregistered users can only see a small sample of reviews submitted about anyone in the system. Registered users can see most reviews submitted about anyone in the system, and can also validate individual reviews submitted about people they’ve worked with (agree/disagree). As a registered user who has claimed their profile, you can view all reviews submitted about you, including data based on key metrics submitted by reviewers.
Verity strongly believes in corporate transparency in dealing with its employees, users, customers, and investors, and that people have a right to know how the data submitted will be used. Verity does not currently sell the data collected to any organizations or individuals. The immediate focus is on scaling user growth and internally analyzing the data submitted to identify trends and patterns that can be applied to the development of a future complex analytics engine. Eventually however Verity will begin investigating potential revenue streams with a data monetization strategy, most likely focused on HR recruiters. For example, recruiters could launch targeted hiring campaigns to identify employees with specific, verifiable, and corroborated skills and behaviours.
Verity’s technology stack and development infrastructure consist mainly of the following:
Verity is regularly evaluating its software stack and monitoring new web development technologies to ensure that its future architectural requirements, scaling needs, and feature requirements will be met.
Verity has a zero tolerance policy towards any postings that contravene its terms of service, including responses that are abusive, attacking, threatening, or aggressive in nature. Such postings will be removed by Verity without warning. If you do identify any active submissions that do not comply with our policies, you can flag the entries to Verity and they will be reviewed as soon as possible.
Registered users who have claimed their profile on Verity can submit responses to any review that they would like to comment on. The content of those comments is at your discretion, and can include an explanation providing context to the review, a denial of the statements made, acknowledgment of the feedback received, or even a request for further details or clarity on the feedback submitted. While the identity of the submitters will never be revealed, registered users will receive a notification when you submit a follow-up comment to their reviews. Other registered users who know you will also have an opportunity to validate other people’s feedback about you by indicating whether they agree or disagree with the reviews submitted. This will help with sorting out inaccurate, biased, or one-off observations.
In addition to submitting reviews, registered users will have the ability to indicate whether they agree or disagree with the observations posted by other users. Consistent disagreements with feedback will indicate that the observations are either invalid, biased, or stem from a one-off situation. Corroboration on the other hand will be an indication that the observed behaviours or described experiences form a consistent pattern observed by many. This qualification of reviews by users will, over time, provide a measure of trustworthiness and consistency of the feedback shared by your colleagues.
