Today we’re excited to announce that millions of LinkedIn members will soon be able to verify their place of work with a Microsoft Entra Verified ID credential. Workplace verifications will be visible on a LinkedIn member’s profile, confirming that the work affiliations listed are accurate while serving as a signal of trust and authenticity to other members and organizations on LinkedIn.
How to issue employee IDs that verify the workplace
Organizations can use Verified ID to create digital employee IDs that reflect their brand and business needs in a matter of minutes. LinkedIn members can click a “verify your workplace” button on their profile and with a few taps on their phone, receive their organization-issued digital employee ID. Once the employee ID credential is shared with LinkedIn, a Workplace Verification will be displayed on their profile.
