Know who you are hiring and mitigate risks to your business by confirming eligibility to work, requisite expertise, qualifications, criminal history, integrity and more. The value of employment screening services extends beyond the on-boarding experience. It can be a regular health check on your organisation’s existing workforce too, by ensuring job specific qualification are current, memberships and licences are valid, police checks are up to date, and industry regulation job requirements continue to be compliant.
Companies such as Cogent Business Solutions conduct employment background screening. We are an accredited body with the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission and member of the Professional Background Screening Association.
The duration varies as it is subject to employer’s requirements. It is also dependent on the position and the nature of the role. Some positions may only review the last five years of employment, while others may take into consideration 10, 15 or even 20 years of employment history.
Yes, anyone can undergo employment screening providing it is with the applicant’s informed consent. This consent allows the prospective employer company and their agents to complete the employment screening process.
