Quick on­line se­cu­rity check

The Advertiser - Careers - - General Vacancies -

RE­CRUITERS can con­duct na­tional crim­i­nal checks in a mat­ter of min­utes in­stead of weeks be­cause of an up­grade to WorkPro’s web-based pre-em­ploy­ment screen­ing pro­gram.

Man­ager Ta­nia Evans says the up­grade to the per­sonal, em­ploy­ment and in­duc­tion in­for­ma­tion por­tal elim­i­nates the need for re­cruiters to sub­mit man­ual, pa­per-based re­quests and com­ple­ments its in­duc­tion train­ing mod­ules.

It also re­duces the amount of time it takes to hire and safe­guard or­gan­i­sa­tions against a neg­li­gent hire.

Ms Evans says re­cruiters want to meet their legal obli­ga­tions but there can be a fine bal­ance be­tween proper screen­ing and hir­ing in a time­frame which meets a client’s needs.

‘‘It’s these com­pet­ing pres­sures that can lead to em­ploy­ers cut­ting corners,’’ she says.

The up­grade also al­lows re­cruiters to make in­stant, in­formed de­ci­sions on can­di­dates and be able to pro­vide work-ready work­ers. ‘‘Re­cruiters can now in­duct and screen can­di­dates on­line in less than an hour,’’ Ms Evans says.

Job ap­pli­cants also only need to com­plete their em­ploy­ment-re­lated in­for­ma­tion once for re­cruiters as de­tails are stored in the sys­tem for val­i­da­tion by po­ten­tial em­ploy­ers.
