Traffic and License Checks
By not regularly screening your employees, you could be exposing your company to unnecessary risk. Here’s what you need to know about ongoing background screening.
Daniel Chilcott, General Manager of Learning and HR Services at Programmed, explains; “Both industries are expanding very quickly. Health and education are such delicate areas because you’re looking after people’s welfare. We need to be especially thorough in our verification of qualifications and experience for these placements."
Daniel Chilcott, General Manager of Learning and HR Services at Programmed, explains; "We need the right person in the role, in the right time frame."
Recent changes to Commonwealth anti-discrimination laws give employers greater certainty in acting on criminal records revealed during background screening. CVCheck’s General Counsel, Craig Sharp, explains.
CVCheck, in compliance with the New Zealand Ministry of Justice, has designed paperless criminal record and traffic checks. They are not only convenient but environment-friendly and faster.
Being able to adequately verify a candidate’s professional history is a vital cog in the employment process, but finding the right ‘fit’ takes more than reading their CV. We reveal how to uncover a candidate’s broader character.
If you haven’t adopted a risk-based approach to your recruitment, chances are you haven’t got a clear picture of your candidate, and that makes it difficult to be confident in your hiring decision. Look into these case studies with our Chief Commercial Officer, Andrew Maffett, to understand the benefits of risk-based employment screening and how to put this into practice in your workplace.
A standardised approach to employee screening could be anything from a formal written policy to a collection of undocumented ‘standard practices’. We reveal the positive impact such an approach can have on your overall business.
Getting background screening as part of a company’s onboarding process is standard practice for many organisations. The degree of verification ranges from simple employment references and police checks right through to role specific checks, such as; VEVO visa/work entitlement, financial checks, traffic, psychometric and many more.
