As technology advances so too does the landscape for economic crime. This is proving to be both a challenge and concern for Australian employers. Findings from the 2016 Global Economic Crime Survey conducted by Pricewaterhouse Coopers (PwC) revealed that:
- 52% of respondents said they had experienced economic crime in Australia.
- 33% of corporate organisations have experienced economic crime.
- Of the 33% or corporate organisations, almost 50% of the incidents were committed by internal parties.
This statistic confirms that economic crime is a real and growing concern in the Australian workforce and requires quick action!
As an actionable first step towards preventing corruption and misconduct in the work environment, most companies perform a series of background tests on all potential employees. Implementing a strict pre-employment screening process means that an organisation is taking a vital step towards protecting not just their business, but also their people, productivity, culture and reputation.
Completing a National Coordinated Criminal History Checks
A National Coordinated Criminal History Check involves identifying and releasing any relevant Australian Federal Police (AFP) information subject to relevant spent convictions, non-disclosure legislation and information release policies. Each of these criminal history checks can only be undertaken with the informed consent of the person being checked.
Carrying out criminal history checks shows due diligence and care from an organisation. It exemplifies that the company values their reputation, team culture and clients.
