cost of employee fraud to UK businesses

of all bankruptcies are caused by employee theft
You need to know exactly who you're employing. If you don't, and a member of your staff is involved in an incident - it's you who can be held liable if you've not carried out the right background checks. The damage to your organisation's reputation could be detrimental, not to mention potential financial damage from fraud.
We've all got a part to play in safeguarding children and vulnerable adults. Performing background checks on your people lets you rest assured you've done everything you can to ensure the right people are working for you.
You haven't carried out background checks on past employees, and you've regretted it. Whether it be for legal reasons, or financial. It's imperative you don't make the same mistake again.
It's never been more important for employers to know who they are employing.
Make the right decision.
You need to fully understand the people you employ, so you can not only protect vulnerable people, but also protect your organisation. There's no excuse.
Employees are at the heart of every business. Without great employees, you wouldn't have a great business. But how well do you know yours? Have you carried out background checks on your people? Do you even know if they have the right to work in the UK?
The decisions you make need to be based on more than just guesswork, so you're not held liable. You need to comply with industry regulations and protect your organisation.
Background check services provide you with the evidence you need to make informed decisions about the people you employ. You can be confident that an individual is exactly who they say they are. Find out an individual's criminal, financial and driving history, so you know if they're suitable for the role. You may think that a quick visual check of passport is enough to verify someone's identity, but how would you know if it was forged or altered? Online background checks give you the confidence to confirm that documents are genuine, and that an individual has the right to work in the UK - all within minutes. You can check new recruits as part of your pre-employment screening, or carry out background checks on existing employees.
Online background checks provide you with a single, online source for completing your people screening checks. Cover everything from identity, criminal record and driving licence checks, to document image validation, bank account checks, PEPs and Sanctions checks and more using the one system. Online background checks are fast, accurate and reliable, assisting you to fulfil your legal obligations, with evidence in an audit trail.
Protect your organisation from fraud and liability, whilst protecting those who need it. Play your part in helping to combat financial crime, terrorism, people trafficking and illegal immigration, and work towards compliance with anti-money laundering obligations.
Know who you can trust from the word go.
The Referencing Agency has been utilising GBG KYP's service since its launch and has found the service extremely efficient and user friendly. It has given us (and our customers) a high level of confidence that Identity and Right to work checks are being carried out over and above the levels needed for compliance with current legislation. Furthermore, we process high volumes of criminal record checks with GBG and have found that both the turnaround times and the number of errors by applicants has reduced dramatically. Customer support has also been extremely efficient and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending these services.
This year, there have been no delays to the applications at all which is completely down to the GBG service.
We had a large number of Enhanced Disclosures to complete in a short period of time. GBG KnowYourPeople allowed us to efficiently process and track each application through to the DBS; and once complete receive a notification when the Disclosure was completed and whether it contained content or was clear. None of this would have been possible if we were managing the checks on the paper based application forms.
The new GBG KnowYourPeople system has made my life so much easier. I can now complete DBS applications twice as fast which has resulted in a much quicker criminal record checking process. GBG KnowYourPeople is the most responsive and user-friendly system I have ever used.
GBG KnowYourPeople has made the application process a lot simpler for applicants, employers, and the team at Assist HR. One fantastic advantage of the system is our ability to view results, in terms of clear/not clear, before the actual disclosure is dispatched. The system can then also provide us with an official letter confirming the results, which can then be used to speed up the recruitment process.
