It’s the end of the year; most people are winding down and hoping for a few quiet weeks before 2018 hits.
Within pre-employment screening it’s a time to make sure the candidates background checks are complete for their January start dates.
Our screening team are working hard this week to complete the majority of the January starters so that the candidates can relax fully over the holidays before beginning their new exciting roles.
We stay open over Christmas to manage any urgent requests but realise there are some factors that we may face during this time –
Potential screening delays over the festive break:
Offices may be closed or have limited staff
The staff working may not have access to the information
References may not be within their priority job list
Education facilities closed and it is quite unlikely that anyone will be there to speak to
Candidates may be out of the country/limited contact
The points above are why we speak directly to the candidates and clients to make sure we are doing everything we can to smoothly complete all checks.
Happy Holidays & Happy New Year from the MJC Screening Team!
