Know who you’re employing?

Would you hand over your house keys to somebody you’ve known for a few weeks? OK, how about your bank details?

Do you have the same outlook on key and cash handlers within your business?

Knowing enough about the people you employ can make all the difference when it comes to reducing criminal activity in the workplace.

A criminal record check can take as little as 24 hours when processed online with a specialist Umbrella Body and the small fee associated with it is a drop in the ocean compared to the cost you could incur by hiring unsuitable employees.

Be proactive and deter unsuitable individuals from applying for your vacancy by stating that a Criminal Record Check will be carried out on applicants.

Addressing these potential pitfalls head on means you can rest assured that your business is being looked after by trustworthy individuals and you can get back to doing what you do best.

Making the decision to safeguard your workplace is one of the easiest and best you’ll make all year. Best practice makes sense.
