21st Pre – Employment Vetting and Screening Conference

Press Release: February 09, 2016

Novotel London West, London, March 16th 2016 – Business Forums International will host the UK’s only dedicated pre-employment vetting and screening conference for the 21st time.

This year’s event is sponsored by leading pre-employment security screening companies, HireRight and The Risk Advisory Group.

The much-anticipated return of the pre-employment vetting and screening conference in March addresses an ever-present need to make sure companies know exactly who they are hiring.

“ The importance of organisations having a sound and secure control environment cannot be overstated”

Dr Janice Goldstraw – White, Independent Criminologist

More than ever, the threats faced by national and global organisations are complex. HR professionals are facing ever-more complicated legal and data protection requirements.
There is a need to protect organisations from fraud, industrial espionage, risks to reputation and protect existing employees, customer and clients.

“The reality is that there is no one-size-fits-all profile of an internal fraudster. Having a consistent approach to screening and counter fraud policy is crucial”

Daniel Cook, CIFAS Internal fraud Compliance Officer

This important annual event will feature 3 in-depth and crucial case studies from Vodafone, Thales Group and REED alongside vital legal updates from DWF LLP and PwC followed by an interactive masterclass on document verification.

“I have been attending at, speaking at, and or chairing this conference since 1999. Why? Because having a robust screening and vetting policy in place allows employers to make the right recruitment decisions to protect not only their business but their staff, which I believe is so important. At this event, delegates will hear from industry experts in their own fields and learn how to not only implement, but improve and alter their existing employee screening and vetting policies and processes to ensure they are watertight. That is why I devote my time to this conference.”

Paul Leadbeater, Chairman and Consultant

The conference is attended by industry leading companies and is an essential event for all HR, recruitment and vetting professionals who wish to network and gain an understanding of industry best practices with like-minded professionals and develop an in-depth knowledge of the latest guidelines, tools and techniques surrounding employee vetting and screening.

Topics including vetting within limited timescales, outsourcing your vetting function and the legalities surrounding social media screening, hiring practices, crisis management and avoiding discrimination claims in order to mitigate legal risks will be discussed in detail. The vital sessions will leave organisations safe in the knowledge that their vetting and screening policies are within the legal limits set out in the discrimination and data protection legislation allowing them to avoid potentially bad hires, costly litigation and reputational damage.

This pre-employment vetting and screening conference will provide a vital annual update for employers, and give delegates with the very latest strategies, tools and techniques.
