New law to punish fake qualification fraud
Fake qualifications or the exposure of these falsifications can be fatal, but new legislation aims to prevent and punish fraud.
Data driven background screening in the 21st Century
Digital transformation is changing the way people and industries engage. Access to information has become easily attainable and platforms have evolved to allow for remote services on-demand. So, what does this mean for the background screening industry? Should professional vetting companies utilise this online data because it is now easier to access, and is background screening still meeting its purpose on these platforms?
Are you screening your temporary employees?
