Partner with First Advantage today for quality hospitality industry background checks and screening services.

Why do I need employee background screening?

Employers are required to check new hires are eligible to work in the UK, their employment history is legitimate, and there’s nothing to indicate they could pose a threat to their brand, customers, and reputation.

Employees may also find themselves handling credit and debit card data or cash, and employers need to adhere to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI-DSS).

In sectors such as gaming, regulators stipulate screening is required for roles within casinos such as dealers, cashiers, and supervisors. The hospitality industry covers a broad range of job roles, mostly in leisure and tourism, including theme parks, hotels, bars, restaurants, casinos, leisure centres and cruise ships. Employees in these sectors are often interacting with an organisation’s customers as front of house services such as bar and waiter staff, croupier, lifeguard or receptionist. An employee’s behaviour, competence and conduct are key to an organisation’s success.

As the face of your organisation, your employee’s behaviour and conduct is not something you should take a chance on.
