Spotting the bad apple...help may be at hand
Hiring people can be a tricky thing at the best of times. Trying to ensure that you have the right person to fit the role in terms of the candidates ability to do a good job is one thing, but now you have to deal with the real and genuine threat of employment fraud and people not being who you think they are.
This is even harder for staffing businesses that are often dealing with significant volumes of candidates and vacancies, whilst trying themselves to supply a quality service to an end client.
Many recruiters use manual checklists or quite often something like Excel to keep track of where they are in the pre-employment compliance process. This is workable at low volumes, but certainly not scalable when you are trying to meet specific client needs and legislation requirements.
Help is at hand in the form of pre-employment screening (PES) technology.
Instead of outsourcing this process to 3rd parties or trying to keep on top of a growing manual process, PES technology helps you manage the process in-house, ensuring you have met all your obligations, whilst also enhancing your businesses brand by making the candidate and referee experience very appealing. It also helps you to consolidate all your suppliers of background information such as Experian, DBS, DS, references and other 3rd parties.
Quite often one of the key reasons given for investing in PES technology is its ability to provide a consistent process to follow that is fully audited, which if things ever go wrong with a fraudulent candidate, is something you will need to be able to point to as part of showing you took all the necessary steps before putting someone into work.
Safe Computing is running an educational seminar on pre-employment screening technology in the staffing sector on the 12th April 2016. As part of the seminar it will be demonstrating its PES technology platform, Safe Screening.
