Last year was one of upheaval and change. For those in the working world, that change brought questions, uncertainty and fear.
In response, Checkpoint committed to providing guidance in the form of facts, updates and professional opinion in the job seeker, HR and recruitment space. And of course – the occasional piece that had nothing to do with the pandemic and was just a great read.
As we enter the new year with cautious optimism, we look back at the top ten stories you loved reading most in 2020…

Another juicy story that we all couldn’t help but sink our teeth into, but also a lesson in the importance of background screening.
