However, besides conducting the screening checks mandated by law, you need to undertake a risk assessment to determine the appropriate checks you need to conduct.
Employment screening is best approached with a strategic framework. Essentially, it’s a prudent business process. The benefits of having a strategic, consistent risk management approach significantly outweigh the investment.
Organisations need to be clear about why they need employment screening, what and when it is required, how the personal information will be collected and securely stored. Based on the screening outcomes, it’s also necessary to disclose who will conduct the checks and the next steps in the hiring process based on the screening outcomes.
