TAILORED PRE-EMPLOYMENT CHECKING SOLUTIONS
We work closely with our clients to establish pre-employment background checking solutions and packages to best suit their individual requirements, objectives and industry, based on human resource and risk management principles. We are currently able to offer our clients a comprehensive menu of searches in Australia. In addition, we are able to offer similar searches in most countries throughout the world. For more specific searches in countries outside of Australia, please contact us for more information.
In order to meet each of our client’s varying needs, we have developed four key products:
Pre-Employment Validation involves the checking of a candidate’s skills, experience, qualifications and background and can be adapted to all levels of employees. We can suggest the most appropriate employment background checking and validation package to suit your organisation based on best practice for your industry. Alternatively, some of our clients choose to design their own validation package from a selection of our background validation checks.
Higher Risk Roles / Senior Appointments
We take particular care when preparing employment background checking and validation packages for high risk and senior appointments. The risks associated with high risk and senior employees are typically greater than other employees in an organisation. Our experience in background checking executives and senior candidates has indicated that a more intense level of screening is required and higher degrees of sensitivity need to be shown to referees and candidates.
Executive Team Due Diligence (mergers, acquisitions, board appointments, investors)
Most investors are vigilant in undertaking legal and financial due diligence prior to finalising major transactions. However, Due Diligence on the people is often overlooked. It is imperative in any business transaction to not only know the business, but to ensure the integrity, reputation and credentials of those people responsible for running the business and who may become part of your executive team.
Legislative Compliance Validations
Many industries are now heavily regulated under ASIC, APRA and AUSTRAC (AML), with various background checks mandatory for licence applications and due diligence programs. Failing to implement adequate employment background checking programs could render businesses liable if they don’t comply or attempt to introduce “reasonable steps” to background check their people. PeopleCheck offers its clients access to a myriad of publicly available information sources essential when background screening board members, trustees, customers, senior management and employees. We assist our clients meet their compliance obligations in a timely and cost effective manner.
Franchise Validation Services
Most franchisors rate franchisee recruitment and selection as the most difficult and problematic decision when establishing a franchise. A poor recruitment decision can result in unpaid royalties, increased administration and support costs, as well as costs in dispute or litigation if the franchisee’s business is not successful. Not to mention the impact on the brand – a brand you have worked tirelessly to develop. PeopleCheck have developed background checking packages for franchisors focused specifically to check the background of their shortlisted franchisees.
