Latest report that all HR professionals from the IT/tech industry must have in 2022!

In the tech industry, attracting, acquiring, and retaining top talent is a major challenge. Discover the best strategies to help solve it.

Know the best best solutions on how to curate and implement a successful people strategy.

Global IT, tech and software businesses compete intensely to find good talent. These organisations must go above and beyond, not just to hire but also to retain talent.

Strategy is crucial in this situation, not just business strategy, but also people strategy.

While these two must align for the organisation to benefit truly, there must be an increased focus on the human aspect of the HR equation.

One aspect of this whitepaper outlines how tech, IT and software companies can build effective people-centric strategies.

While the demand for talent runs high and the supply low, companies cannot afford to ignore the need to know whom they are hiring. The organisations must thoroughly analyse each candidate’s skills as well as technical, commercial, soft skills, and cultural fit before hiring them.

In addition to creating a people-centric strategy, companies must also consider the fit of the people they bring in.

The third aspect of this whitepaper deals with empowering your team with the right kinds of tools.

Tools should not be the basis on which your company culture and employee behaviour are decided. Tools should fit into your requirements; they should complement your culture and act as a driver for your goals.

In this report, we discuss:

- People strategy

- Assessing your candidates

- Using tools that fit into your organisation

- How to curate and implement a successful people strategy?

- Creating Reliable Talent Supply

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.
