Compliance as a Service

Resolving the complexity, burden and risks associated
with candidate compliance

Approach

  In the last 15 years compliance requirements have
changed significantly. The continually increasing
complexity and burden of compliance is driving up cost,
causing confusion, increasing risk and imposing serious
business consequences for non-compliance (including:
direct loss of revenue, reputational risk and even criminal
sanctions.

Providing clients with scalable candidate compliance
checks saving time and resources.

Compliance as a Service provides risk mitigation and peace of mind

This service is chosen by clients who do not have the time or resources to perform the checks that provide assurance of the candidates’ legal right to work in the UK, proof of their identity, confirmation of performance credentials through referencing and the statutory checks that require third party assurances. Risks are mitigated through continual monitoring of compliance requirements and change implementation.

Flexible solution

Instead, they choose to mitigate these risks by engaging an expert organisation for these high-volume, yet essential components within the recruitment lifecycle.
