Background Checking - Know Your People

Manager at CrimCheck

Better Boards is pleased to present "Background Checking - Know Your People" in partnership with Brett Holland, Manager at CrimCheck.

Accurate background screening is an essential component of the employee and volunteer recruitment process. Unfortunately, the traditional process for obtaining criminal history checks has proven to be time-consuming.

Too often, the delay leads to the loss of a potential new staff member or volunteer and, in some cases, a decision to overlook the checking process in favour of a speed appointment, which can lead to problems at a later time.

Join Brett as he talks about:

  • the differences between mandatory checks and discretionary checks in Australia
  • how not all checks are the same
  • what you ask for will determine the amount of information released
  • how asking for the wrong checks can expose your organisation to unexpected risk.
