How can we help in Office Administration

In most office environments your employees will have access to sensitive customer data, so it’s critical for your peace of mind and for compliance that you know those people are trustworthy. From call centres to administrative departments, all will require some level of employment referencing to understand what risk an individual might pose to the business. Employee background checks are becoming increasingly common as the impact of hiring a dishonest employee can have detrimental effects on your reputation and the business. Every client that interacts with you will also want reassurance that the staff who have access to their data have been security checked and cleared to manage their account. 


VettingGateway gives you the tools you need to manage these background check and make a quick hiring decision. The platform is simple and easy to navigate, and uses clever automation to both chase your references back in and to request checks such as a Criminal Record or Identity Check.

Here are just some of the problems associated with manual Social Media Checks: Breaches in data and privacy laws Inaccurate information – it’s easier than you might think to check the wrong person Human bias and error Cumbersome and time-consuming – it is virtually impossible to scan and collect social media data as comprehensively as a purpose-built algorithm Candidate Experience – a candidate is likely to have a much more favourable view of an employer if they trust that their social media will not be accessed by a human. The impartial nature of using software to conduct a Social Media Check means that employers won’t lose the trust of their new hires during the background checking process.
