Mitie’s employee screening and vetting company, Procius – acquired by the facilities management firm in 2014 – has announced the launch of a ‘revolutionary’ new right to work (RTW) checking system app powered by KPMG, which aims to support businesses in ensuring compliance with Home Office/Immigration Service requirements are consistently met.
The app is said to be the first of its kind and will provide clients unprecedented access to a managed RTW service that will enable recruiting managers to complete a right to work check using a mobile device.
Furthermore, the app details the specific requirements for particular individuals at the time of an interview; capturing signed confirmation of documentation. Upon completion, the documentation is checked by Procius’ specialist RTW agents providing an ‘additional layer of assurance and governance’, with results then communicated back to the recruiting manager.
Technology development director at Mitie, Darren Gamage, commented: “The effective management of Right to Work is a critical issue for all UK employers, and the risks associated with either failing to undertake checks at the time of individuals joining or when their visas or status is due to change are significant. Our relationship with KPMG has allowed us to work with them to develop a highly flexible app and back-end database that allows us to support customers in managing this risk whilst also significantly reducing the paper burdens of traditional processes.”
