UK business report confirms reduction in fraud – but now is not a time to relax

Annual reports from BDO’s Fraud Track states that fraudulent activity cost the UK almost £750 million in the last year. But while this is a reduction from previous years figures, this could simply be due to lack of reporting, with only an estimated 1 in 50 cases likely to be reported.

HR technology and how integrations are essential

Competition within recruitment continues to grow, with workers demanding more from their jobs than ever before. Technology is now firmly infused into the fabric of our daily lives and the use of technology within the hiring process is not simply useful, it is expected.

Trusting your screening supplier to make the right decisions for your business

Your company is valuable, and whether you are a huge multinational corporation or a small start-up, finding the right employee can mean the difference between future success and failure. Carrying out comprehensive background checks can ensure that your employees will be a positive, not destructive, addition to your team.

Taking a look under the bonnet of background screening

The background screening process varies according to the role the candidate is applying for and the service you require from your screening provider, but generally involves identity, residency verification and right to work checks, employment checks, academic qualifications, credit checks, criminality checks and social media checks.
