Australia Post has launched a new employment screening service – Workforce Verification – to offer employers a streamlined and efficient verification solution.
Workforce Verification is a service that will conduct a range of screens, including identity, police and visa checks in one interface, making life easier for HR managers.
Real-time visibility status of all candidate and existing employee cheeks will also help streamline reporting and ongoing compliance, AusPost said.
Currently the platform allows core ready-to-work check requirements, but with a roadmap for more sophisticated identity, qualification and integrity checks to be added to the platform in future.
Australia Post head of product – identity services, Christian Seely, said that the new offering was a game-changer for HR professionals, streamlining the process, reducing administration costs, and reducing candidate dropout and improving the overall experience.
“Already a trusted leader in identity services and employment screening, and one of Australia’s most trusted brands, Australia Post’s new solution will verify employees faster and more efficiently through an easy to use low touch platform,” he said.
“We know the importance of businesses and government agencies knowing who they are hiring – and the strength of our offering is the flexibility to offer a dual online and in-store process, leveraging our extensive network of post offices.”
Australia Post has already signed on nine customers, and with many more in the pipeline, is set to expand the service in coming months.
