Some individuals simply aren’t right for a particular role. Others are wrong for your organisation in any capacity. People may be applying.
They may already be on the payroll. Either way, you need to check their backgrounds to assess their suitability – and GBG KnowYourPeople is the comprehensive answer you need.
"As a leading provider of bus and coach services across the UK and, through our megabus.com operation, our growing network of services to and within mainland Europe, our team consists of many thousands of staff. As such, we have a number of processes to ensure that our driving team are professional, safe and customer focused. As part of this, it is essential that all our drivers hold the correct qualifications and licences, and undergo comprehensive, thorough initial and ongoing training. To ensure an extra layer of checks, Stagecoach UK Bus contracted GBG to carry out electronic driving licence checks on all licence holders, as we recognise that paper checks are not foolproof, and counterpart licences will be abolished during 2015. The results can give our passengers reassurance that all our drivers are fully equipped to drive the vehicles they are travelling on."

“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.”

“I manage Volunteer recruitment for a charity that works with people with learning disabilities and/or mental health needs. We are always in need of more hands on deck, and I have been astounded at the seamless service offered by GBG KnowYourPeople. We are now able to turn checks around within a week, if not quicker, which is crucial for maintaining interest and motivation of potential new volunteers. This is in stark contrast to the time consuming paper applications, which often resulted in the decline of volunteer interest in the past. GBG also offers swift and knowledgeable support, which has really helped with the technicalities and legislation changes of the DBS process.”

“Moving online has enabled us to make our process more streamlined, and has dramatically improved the turnaround of DBS clearances for the majority of our students. GBG staff are on-hand to support students with both general and technical queries, and provide support to the University regarding general process issues as well as any legislative changes and how they may affect our organisation. Working in partnership with GBG enables us to be better prepared for any process changes we need to implement.”

“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.”

“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 DBS application forms.”

“The Referencing Agency has been utilising GBG’s KYP 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.”
