Why background check your workforce?

In the past, businesses didn’t have access to a reliable service to verify reportable information. As a result, businesses need to make decisions without understanding all disclosable background information which may have influenced a candidate’s employment or appointment a game of trial and error.

Bad hires cost employers millions each year in business theft, fraud, poor culture fit and other financial losses –not to mention the lost opportunity cost distraction to recruit, onboard and train a replacement when things go wrong.

A Ministry of Justice check mitigates this huge risk and removes the guesswork from hiring. WorkPro’s online NZ MoJ checking service provides access to critical and detailed information fast, giving you the confidence you need to choose the right talent – every single time.
