Why employers should use international police checks?

When hiring new workers in Australia it is critical to perform official, secure national police checks on individuals. However, the results of those checks do not include criminal history outside Australia.

Candidates bring new knowledge and skills as a result of international work experience, but they may have engaged in reportable criminal activity. Fraud and theft in the workplace costs Australian businesses up to $8.5 billion every year. This does not include the damage a bad hire can do to business relationships and brands.

An international police check fills in the blanks, giving employers confidence needed to make smart HR decisions.

WorkPro makes this possible with fast and secure international police checks for employers. Order, track and manage them online from the powerful WorkPro dashboard, with smart notifications to keep businesses in control of their hiring process.
