Why background check your candidates?

In the past, Hiring Managers didn’t have access to reliable and accurate tools to verify information. As a result, big hiring decisions had to be made without knowing the full picture of candidates – making recruitment a game of trial and error.

Bad hires cost Australian employers $8.5 billion each year in business theft, fraud, bad culture fits and other financial losses – and that doesn’t even include the resources to recruit, onboard and train a replacement when things go wrong.

Background checks take these risks off the table and remove the guesswork from hiring. They are fast, simple and secure, revealing the missing pieces of the puzzle. WorkPro’s on-demand checks give you the information and confidence to choose the right talent for your roles – every single time.

How do WorkPro's background checks work?

Performing a background check with WorkPro is simple and intuitive, and you can track the status of all of your requests from the one dashboard.

You can gain access to the full suite of background checks on-demand with a WorkPro account. This means you can order the checks any time it suits you – giving you instant and complete control over your screening process.

Each background check offers a different service, and can be used to verify a wide range of critical  information to help you hire the best candidates for your roles:

  • Australian Police Check: Verify a candidate’s criminal history with quick turnaround times. This is particularly important for roles that involve a high level of responsibility, and positions that can attract a high rate of staff turnover.
  • Work Rights Check: All employers must ensure members of their workforce are eligible to work in Australia. If any staff are in breach of this law, you can face heavy penalties and fines. This check will ensure a candidate can legally work in the country. Work Rights checks are FREE with all WorkPro accounts.
  • Employment History Check: Verify a candidate’s previous places of employment to ensure their skill set will be suitable for your role. Some of the details we collect include dates of employment, previous positions held, salary and reasons for leaving previous roles. We typically obtain employment data dating back seven years, but for directors or senior executives this can be extended beyond 10 years.
  • Qualification Check: Confirm the candidate’s certifications are legitimate. We verify the institution and the highest qualification the candidate has listed.
  • International Police Check: Protect yourself, your workforce and your business. Our international police checks reveal a candidate’s criminal history, regardless of where they lived in the past.
  • Credit and Financial Check: Gain valuable insight into a candidate’s financial history and relationship with debt. Conducted via an online search of an Australian or New Zealand credit bureau, the report includes the last seven years of data. We’ll provide you with a final copy of the report for your records.
  • Ministry of Justice Check: Employers can use this service to gain insight into an applicant’s history in New Zealand. Turnaround times are fast and official results are returned from the Ministry of Justice government database.

You can visit each page to discover more information about each type of background check.

By partnering with government and private bodies, we’re able to deliver an exhaustive background screening service, enabling you to comply with all relevant legal requirements, minimise the chances of a hiring the wrong person and ultimately protecting your business.
