Energy & Utilities

Improving Your Hiring Process and Your Workforce.

Employment opportunities within the energy and utilities sectors require a highly-skilled workforce with specialised competencies.

Accurately performing a thorough background check on all new hires with a partner such as Sterling can directly help to ensure safety and security in the workplace. Misrepresentation of education or employment histories could result in violation of safety and security policies, negligent hiring lawsuits, or worse.

Competition amongst candidates for employment continues to be at a high and the trend for falsifying CVs and qualifications is growing. A thorough background checking programme can reduce both internal theft and staff turnover while improving the speed of recruitment.

Background Check Compliance: The Mistakes You Could be Making Without Realising

Conducting background checks on candidates is a must-have for employers wanting to meet regulatory obligations or mitigate the cost, safety and reputational risk of a bad hire. But there are vital compliance considerations which must be adhered to along the way. In this session Steve Smith will reflect on unique Sterling research and explore the typical pitfalls which hiring firms must avoid. Learn from real-life errors made by other employers and get practical guidance on how you can develop a robust background screening programme.
