Being traditional in the execution of Reference Checks, WDEA Works was sceptical to move to a digital employment screening platform. However since making this move we have seen the benefits of online reference checks providing a fast and efficient pre-screening option. The support, consultation and platform provided by Accurate Australia have been very reliable and accommodating to meet our needs. It is very important to us that we hire the best candidates for our organisation and Verify now helps us to achieve this.

Vicki Clayton

People and Culture Manager

Before using Accurate Australia ’s services, our staff had to manually complete all the relevant background checks which not only took time but also resulted in undue delays in staff onboarding. As a registered NDIS Provider, there are stringent requirements in place to screen a potential staff prior to onboarding. Their system is simple and easy to use from the time we initiate a request till we receive the final result.

Star Scientific Limited is an organisation that works in scientific research and development where protecting our intellectual property is paramount. Accurate Australia was chosen for its screening expertise of applicants, which caters to all employment areas of our corporation. Protecting IP and that of others we hold in various projects is the reason Accurate Australia remains the only applicant screening service we trust, can rely on, and choose to use. We highly recommend Accurate Australia screening services for all types of businesses and find their online screening system user-friendly and efficient.
