Is a criminal record holding you back professionally?
Securing a job in South Africa today is tough for many. Latest figures from Stats SA indicate that unemployment has increased to 27.2% for the second quarter of the year (from 26.7%) – where hiring organisations are more cautious than optimistic about growth in the economy, their markets and their businesses. Hiring someone with a criminal record is often just not an option.
Vetting clients has never been more critical
In a world where media and the public are quick to assign blame, undertaking comprehensive background screening and vetting of clients – to mitigate and minimise possible reputational damage by association - has never been more vital.
Are you serving yourself and your potential employer honestly?
News reports of qualification scandals involving high level administrators in the public and private sector, alike, continue to stress the critical importance of comprehensive background screening checks. All job seekers are urged to be honest, as the personal risks associated with being found out for misrepresentation or fraud can be far greater.
