Don’t fake it to make it!
Securing a suitable career path is undeniably one of the most difficult decisions one must make in life – especially in the South African environment where opportunities are hard to come by. With the reality of background screening steadily becoming a compulsory practice within the hiring process – what does this mean for candidates?
Candidate and supplier screening prioritised amidst murky market risks
Incidents of fraud, corruption, misappropriation of assets, misconduct and misrepresentation, among others, are continuously being publicly exposed and reported on in the media the world over. To address and mitigate the implied reputational, or even legal or financial risk to the associated entities, background screening continues to gain global attention and is being adapted of as part of employment and procurement practices.
Drilling background screening into the bedrock of mining health and safety
The South African mining industry continues to receive much attention, and the recent media noise following the safety challenges within the sector is no different. This attention of the last year has focused on the growing safety concerns in mines, and rightly so, given the rise in number of deaths within mining in the past year. Without a doubt, safety must continue to top the agenda of discussions.
