Onboard Express has established a partnership with WorkPro to address a gap in client workforce compliance.
The results of independent research conducted by Onboard Express into the Australian employment legislation framework uncovered the opportunity for clients to easily mismanage the administration of non-Australian citizens work rights.
The Onboard Express solution allowed customers to capture candidate information during the screening and onboarding phase, however, there was no option for a candidate to independently validate and therefore prove their citizenship and work rights and help the client make an informed employment decision.
The larger opportunity to enhance compliance is the scheduled re-checking once the candidate has been employed and making this a seamless process.
Onboard Express and WorkPro collaborated to develop the solution, using WorkPro’s seamless integration with the Department of Home Affairs VEVO database.
Customers can now instantly validate Australian citizenship information and perform an instant work rights check across their workforce onboarding process. The new feature dramatically improve adherence to legislated compliance and deliver job-readiness efficiency for Onboard Express customers.
Onboard Express’ key customer KFC, arguably one of Australia’s best known brands piloted the solution as part of the proof of concept, and was instrumental by providing valuable feedback during design and development.
“We are so excited to be partnering with WorkPro. As a leader in the compliance space, they were able to share their experience and knowledge, and guide us to ensure practical governance for our customers in an easy to use way. We are already in discussions about integrating working with children and vulnerable people checks and police checks as an extension of our partnership throughout 2020, stated. Affirm CEO, Bryan Ericson.
WorkPro Founder, Tania Evans added; “Work Rights checks are a critical part of every onboarding process. The check can only be completed using the Department’s VEVO database either directly or through an Accredited provider.”
“WorkPro is delighted to develop a strategic partnership with Onboard Express. The partnership provides value by mitigating risks and delivering compliance efficiency in business processes and operations for Affirm customers.”
