Are traditional background checks enough, in our complex modern workplaces?

Background checks are essential for the trust and safety of an organisation, but is a cheap & fast criminal history check truly enough to ensure that you are doing all you can to prevent workplace risk? Australian Standards 4811 Workforce Screening says ‘no’.

Consider the new wave of threats, sometimes called counter-productive workplace behaviours, and how they are front and centre in society today. They have been included in Recommendations in the Royal Commissions (Sex Abuse, Banking, Aged Care).

Chances are you won’t find that behaviour and others like it (data breaches, theft, bullying, violence, corruption) on a police check. So how do you protect your organisation’s reputation, your employees safety and safeguard the people they serve?

The standard for acceptable workplace behaviour has been elevated, so must your screening methods. 

The key to success is to raise the standard to meet Australian Standards 4811 2022.

To screen: “To test or examine someone or something to discover if there is anything wrong with the person or thing.” – Cambridge Dictionary
