Case study: Search Consultancy

Search Consultancy recruits temporary and permanent personnel for a range of blue chip organisations. Over recent years it has seen a significant increase in the compliance requirements in terms of pre-employment screening, which can be a drain on staff resources. 

Search was using a manual process, which presented problems with reporting, speed of completion and auditing. As an organisation that already supplied screening services to some of its clients, Search was being audited by those clients to ensure their compliance. What’s more, as an recruitment specialist Search also had its own agency workers and the ability to capture and prove the “right to work” process was also proving  important.

Search Consultancy was referred to Safe Computing by Amris, which was setting up a new Candidate Management System for a particular client Search Consultancy was working with. 

When Safe Computing first engaged with Search it was becoming increasingly important for Search to find a method of conducting pre-employment screening in a timely fashion in order for the company to place candidates with its clients. Screening and candidate work place compliance, in the future, will only become more important and more complicated.

When Search Consultancy met with Robert Drake at Safe Computing he fully explained the system specification as a standalone product and also how this could be integrated with a CMS system.  Robert quickly identified that Search Consultancy was looking for a system that could manage, employment/academic referencing, criminal record checks and financial screening. Search Consultancy sat down as a working party to set up the workflow for the initial campaign and introduced this in May 2012.

From this, Safe Screening engineered a system that could carry out all checks required with limited input from resource and had a fully auditable process on when checks were requested. The solution has the facility to carry account Academic Referencing, Employment Referencing, Personal References, Credit Check and Criminal Record Checks. Search Consultancy says it has found the process to be extremely efficient with documents returned in a much quicker turnaround time.

From the initial discussions with Safe Screening, Search Consultancy went live with the project within four weeks.

Donna Turner, director at Search Consultancy, says: “We were looking to reduce the amount of resource required to carry out this level of back office activity and to increase the turnaround times of completing the pre-employment screening requirements for each candidates and this has now been achieved.

“I would describe the Safe Screening system as a technology platform that ‘does exactly what you require’. The importance should be placed on the set up of the workflow you are looking to use and it is a cost effective system for any organisation who has pre-employment screening requirements.”

Robert Drake of Safe Computing adds: “
Having experienced running a manual process myself (in fact the very reason I built the screen platform) I was aware of the efficiencies that could be gained, just by automating the reference gathering process – this was the start point for the screening product. With the additional integration to DBS/CRB, Experian and the compliance element, we have taken the product to a whole new level.

“Search will gain great time savings as well as have a completely defendable and demonstrable process. Mitigating the risk to their business and giving them the ability to engage their customers, on screening, in a previously unachievable way.”funny halloween pictures funny pictures funny images funny photos
