Whether it’s upskilling workers, fine-tuning your work health and safety or enhancing your hiring process, there are many paths that HR teams can take to get even more efficient and effective in 2021.
The start of the year has flown by, and while you’ve been working hard to make this one your best yet, we’ve been busy building a range of exciting new features and releases to help you do it.
From a new way to instantly view workforce-wide compliance to video tutorials and shiny new course modules, here are 5 WorkPro updates from the last few months to make your screening and compliance even more simple in the months (and years) to come.
1. There’s a new visual insights dashboard
We’ve just released a brand new visual insights view to WorkPro, giving employers a new level of transparency and control over their workforce screening and compliance activity.
This colourful new screen will change the game for those who are short on time (aren’t we all?). It provides users with a deeper insight into candidate activity, allowing them to quickly view expiry statuses, requests and task completions, and identify non-compliance across their workforce quickly.
If you’re currently a WorkPro customer, you can check it out right now. Login, click the top right menu and take a look!
2. You can now reference check online with WorkPro
We recently partnered with Referoo to launch WorkPro Reference Checks. This means employers are able to not only request background checks, induct staff and request employment-related licences, now they can also verify worker references from the same platform too.
Online reference checks are easy to use, mobile-friendly and convenient for referees to complete. Hiring Managers can package them up with existing job packages in WorkPro, allowing them to request reference checks online along with all of the above in just a few clicks. Pre-filled question templates make the process even faster to set up and start using.
Not only can you cut hours of time playing phone tag with referees, you’ll also make it easier and quicker for users with one solution to collect both qualitative and quantitative candidate data. Plus, automatic fraud detection ensures the information you’re receiving is genuine and coming from who you think it is.
3. We added a Fraud and Corruption Module
Our eLearning platform of 40+ practical, pre-built learning modules now includes a Fraud and Corruption Module, providing your workers with essential awareness about fraud, corruption and bribery in the business world.
Some of the critical topics this module covers includes identifying and reporting fraudulent activity, the necessary steps to investigate and respond to them, and strategies for effective prevention.
The cost of fraudulent behaviour and corrupt activities can impact many areas of a business, from staff morale, to cashflow and asset risk, and reputational damage. Equipping your workforce with this knowledge will allow them to notice the signs as they appear and understand the importance of the measures that must be taken to limit its impact.
4. We also released a Cyber Security Module
As business becomes more reliant on digital technology, we become more and more vulnerable to cyber attacks from anywhere in the world. We built a new Cyber Security Module so employers can prepare their workers with specialised training to ensure they’re playing their part to keep the business safe.
This module focuses on modern security vulnerabilities, common security measures, how to mitigate risk and provides an overview of current cyber security laws and regulations.
5. Our Video Tutorials had a facelift
Stuck on something? Good news – We’ve given our Video Tutorials a tidy refresh, enhancing the layout while also adding a range of brand new walkthrough videos.
From how to perform an Australian Police Check and Work Rights Check to creating your first safety induction with WorkPro, we’ve got all of your questions answered with easy step-by-step processes and explanations. For all of you WorkPro Wizards out there (we know who you are) they’re also full of handy tips and tricks to make your compliance processes even more efficient.
