Procheckhelps manage these risks by affording employers the opportunity to ensure that they are employing honest, trustworthy and reliable staff.
Some of the biggest threats to companies are incidences of internal theft, corruption and fraud. The current economic climate and high unemployment rate in South Africa has given rise to candidates increasingly falsifying their qualifications, CVs, references and denying their criminal histories. It is therefore imperative that all potential employees are thoroughly screened and their credibility established. Relying on instinct when recruiting staff is no longer enough to meet the duty of care required of companies.
Procheckrecommends that all companies exercise due diligence when recruiting staff and this includes thorough background screening.
Procheck’s main objectives are to:
Prevent industrial (internal business) fraud, theft or loss;
Protect business assets;
Provide detailed information on potential employees; and
Proactively identify weaknesses in business practices.
