Simply put; pre-employment screening is necessary because employers can no longer rely solely on candidate interviews to make sound recruitment decisions. Pre-employment screening is the cornerstone of good risk management.
A wrong recruitment decision will have severe consequences and is often very costly to rectify. It is therefore critical that your recruitment decision is sound.
Employment Screening should be viewed as an ongoing process of good risk management and not solely applicable to potential employees. People's circumstances change continually so any vulnerability may present a risk to your organisation. It makes good sense to routinely re-screen holders of certain roles or those individuals being considered for promotion or being given a position of trust.
Greymen use the latest search systems and data sets to ensure the information we provide you with enables you to make informed decisions. We will happily assist with identifying which roles require screening as well as the specific checks required to minimise risk.
