Meet Your Future Co-Workers Seminar 2018

September saw First Advantage APAC host three seminars in Australia, China and Singapore titled Meet Your Future Co-workers. EVP & Managing Director Erik Schmit had the opportunity as the key speaker to engage with clients to discuss emerging trends and technologies that have important implications on recruitment and background screening in the future. We also shared our latest innovation that will enhance candidate experience: Profile Advantage™.


Building Better Partnerships

30 different key clients across the region actively participated in the invite-only event with strong attendance from the BFSI sector. The events were run in response to demand from our clients for First Advantage to share best practice and upcoming trends that will impact their recruitment functions.  The feedback from clients was uniformly positive and they look forward to attending future events.  We intend to open up these sessions to the wider business community as we build out our partnerships in the First Advantage eco-system.  If you would like to be on the invite list for these events in 2019 then please send your contact details to


Keeping Clients Up To Date

First Advantage invited local guest speakers to share their knowledge and insights on emerging trends in the recruitment and HR worlds.  A big thank you to Ashley Beecher, Sr. Vice President from AJINGA  who shared his insights on recruitment innovation trends in China, David Guazzarotto VP Australia/NZ from Alight who shared insights on HR transformations and technology adoption in Australia and James Hewitt from IBM Watson who shared insights on AI automation in Singapore.


Introducing Profile Advantage

In this seminar series we also showcased to the audience our latest technology:  Profile Advantage™, a mobile-first background screening solution that candidates can leverage anytime from anywhere.

Profile Advantage enables candidates to respond to an invitation to initiate the process of providing the necessary information to begin their background screen, fill in the relevant details and increase completion rates all in one application. Additionally, the solution will streamline the screening process by enabling users to submit critical documentation quickly and easily, addressing a common challenge faced by global talent with multinational educational and professional experience. Based on current customer data, candidates who use Profile Advantage submit their information 70% faster than those who do not.

In conclusion, it was great to meet so many of our clients. We heard valuable feedback on our current products as well as what they would love to see in the future. We look forward to hosting more events in Asia Pacific in 2019.
