Your employees are considered a reflection of your organisation and each one carries your brand and reputation in their hands. Traditional HR screening and background checks don’t consider the possibility of reputational damage. At NetWatch Global we’re different and take a 360° view of candidates and current employees to mitigate risk to your business.
For many, if not all, businesses your staff are an extension of your brand. Their behaviour, attitude and interactions with customers and their fellow staff create the public’s perception of your company. As such employing the right people with strong morals and a positive work ethic can be the difference between success and failure. Increasingly anti-social online content has been flagged by the media, customers and even other employees so understanding the online footprint of your employees, from the executive team down, has never been more important. That is why at NetWatch we take a different approach to pre-employment screening.Visit our Employment Screening Portal
Too many big businesses do not take the most basic pre-employment checks seriously enough and aren’t aware of the fines that can be imposed until it’s too late.
The penalty for employing someone who doesn’t have the right to work in the UK is a fine of up to £20,000 for each illegal worker.
Fines are levied if a business has failed to conduct the correct basic checks, or if they haven’t performed them sufficiently. To further stress the importance of this there is also the possibility of five years jail time if you are found guilty of having reasonable cause to believe a worker didn’t have the right to work in the UK.BLOG - Pre-Employment Screening
At NetWatch our approach to pre and post-employment screening is very different. Our employment screening packages include everything you would expect from a standard check (credit checks, document validation, Passport number validation, Visas and even Biometric Residence Permits) and much much more.
Our Open Source and Social Media Screening services look to validate the information being presented by an employee or candidate and look for other risks, negative media and information on an individual. We also offer outsourced character reference interviews to take the workload of chasing references for you.
