How to Deliver the Future of Work

Share this article

It has been difficult to accurately predict the future of work since the time of the industrial revolution. With the advent of machines since the industrial age, a recurrent fear has been that technological innovations will replace humans in jobs leading to mass unemployment. As Charles Darwin said, the species most adaptable to changes survive, not the strongest or most intelligent. Humans have proved to be the most adaptive species, and their evolutionary capabilities have been proven in the place of work. When machines and automation eclipsed many jobs, people found other jobs, and methods for earning a living, even as they had to undergo a challenging transition.

We are again at a tipping point similar to the industrial age of the 18th century, when industrial machinery led to unprecedented economic growth on a vastly different scale than anything that had happened before. However, as in the past, when the impact of technological innovations was either underestimated or overestimated in the context of work-life, the current projection about the future may turn out to be far different from what is being assumed.

The technology-driven work-life transition was already underway when the world was struck by the confines and greater homeworking of the Covid-19 pandemic, which has been a catalyst to step-change the economic landscape. It has accelerated business transformation driven by artificial intelligence, automation, and blockchain technologies. Up until the pandemic, few organisations were prepared for technology-driven transformation, but many have now prioritised it to leverage new opportunities and adapt to the shifting nature of work.

What background check do I need?

This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.

Why should employers check the background of potential employees?

Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.

How long do background checks take?

Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.

Can you do a background check online?

All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.

What are the benefits of a background check?

In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.

What does a background check show?

Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.
