HireRight Partners with Proventa International to Emphasise the Importance of Background Screening in the Healthcare and Pharmaceutical Industries

SINGAPORE, 31 January 2018 – HireRight, a leading provider of global employment background checks, will be hosting a roundtable at the HR Life Sciences & Healthcare Strategy Meeting APAC 2018, taking place at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore on April 9.

Organised by management consultancy Proventa International, the event will converge senior HR leaders and executives from leading Pharmaceutical and Healthcare organisations to discuss the latest industry trends and challenges.  

“According to HireRight’s 2017 APAC Employment Screening Benchmark Report, an alarming 70% of companies in the region uncovered issues with applicants that may have gone unnoticed without background screening,” said Mary O’Loughlin, Managing Director of HireRight’s Healthcare and Life Sciences business, who will be moderating the roundtable.

HireRight’s session will focus on how these organisations can implement a holistic and balanced employee background screening program to help reduce hiring risk, compete for talent and navigate an ever changing regulatory environment.

Finding qualified candidates consistently ranks as one of the top talent acquisition and management challenges for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry worldwide. Coupled with the growing shortage of qualified healthcare workers, organisations have to compete for staff on a local and international level, introducing new risks to companies in terms of identifying, authenticating, and eventually hiring the best talent.

“Due to the high-risk nature of the industry, Healthcare organisations need to perform their due diligence before hiring new staff or when current employees take up a new role within the company. Many multinational Pharmaceutical companies also often look beyond their shores for talent, and ensuring those candidates undergo proper background screening can lead to specific challenges. Having a rigorous global screening process in place promotes a culture of safety, transparency and integrity,” shared O’Loughlin.
