Ecocleen has teamed up with uComply to streamline and simplify its ‘right to work’ checks. The company will use the uAuthenticate mobile application across its nationwide network of franchises, so regional directors can immediately authenticate identity documents. This will further enhance Ecocleen’s robust staff onboarding processes by introducing real-time right to work checks that empower local users.
“Effective background checking and pre-employment screening is a critical part of our complete compliance with Home Office immigration guidelines,” said Jean-Henri Beukes, managing director of Ecocleen. “We had previously operated a centralised system for right to work checks that whilst robust could also be time consuming and result in unnecessary delays in the recruitment process. The uAuthenticate mobile app will enable our regional directors to make immediate employment decisions, so they can quickly and efficiently fill cleaning roles while reducing any exposure to risk.”
The uAuthenticate mobile application fully validates a wide range of identity documentation including passports, visas, ID cards, driving licences, biometric cards, and work or resident permits in a matter of seconds. This accurate scanning and verification procedure, with built-in Home Office guidance, will quickly determine if someone has the right to work in the UK and identify any fake documents. This will help franchises to speed up the recruitment process and ensure contracts have the appropriate staffing levels, while protecting Ecocleen against any potential reputational loss or fines.
