Whether you are looking to hire a new employee, enter into a business relationship or sign a contract with another company you need to be sure that the trust you are placing in the other party will be repaid. Our background checks aim to provide reassurance or raise red flags in the trustworthiness and reputation of such parties. That way you can make informed decisions on the future of your business or career.
We understand that business or employment situations are often time sensitive, with decisions having to be made quickly. We, therefore, take pride in meeting pressing deadlines to provide our clients with the information they need.
Our full reports include:
- Identity and address verification
As the foundation to a background check, identifying the person’s name and address proves vital. With identity theft on the rise due to the digital economy we live in, it is easier than ever to take some one’s identity, and with it their reputation, history and credit score.
- Education and reference checks
For recruitment purposes, education and reference checks are a prerequisite. However, this area may be important in business ventures, especially if the work is reliant on their education and expertise. We talk directly to human resources departments and not merely referees or colleagues they worked with directly.
- Professional membership checks
An area that is easy to overlook, by both employer and employee. Nevertheless, it provides insight into their ability and competence, especially in the financial, engineering and legal industries. There are legal regulations with regard to their right to work or practice their profession to consider.
- Bankruptcy and insolvency checks
Of particular importance in commercial transactions, such as subcontracting, joint ventures and long-term contracts. Your organisation needs to ensure the relationship’s viability, including project completion and future earnings.
- Directorship and business background checks
This area is crucial to understanding leadership and commercial capability, which can allow you to make the right decision about a merger or joint venture. Our checks identify a number of areas, including past failures, disqualifications and County Court Judgments.
- Litigation, employment and tribunal award checks.
Privacy laws often block the details of any litigation or tribunal cases for most people. Rouse Investigations utilises an array of specialist resources and researchers to find relevant information before you make a hire or sign a contract.
Rouse Investigations has a strong reputation for adhering to legal and ethical compliance when performing either overt or covert investigations, including compliance with European and national data protection laws. Our team strives to be up-to-date with all legal and investigations rules.
