PeopleCheck ™ is also a registered UK trademark that is recognised as a service leader and a symbol of quality and professionalism within the background screening sector, consistently setting best and most effective practices within the industry. PeopleCheck does not subcontract and maintains its own secure UK-based server that enables encrypted access to candidate instruction forms which render to the majority of computers, tablets, smart phones and similar devices whilst maintaining the integrity of the display and data. The connection is protected with 256-bit encryption and no data is stored by the web server. PeopleCheck also confidentially and permanently destroys and disposes of any personal or confidential information, in whatever form, once it has been used for the sole purposes of conducting the required checks. PeopleCheck also undertakes that any non-public personal information coming into its possession is not be shared with unrelated third parties and shall at all times be processed, to the extent applicable, in accordance with the 8 principles of data security under the UK Data Protection Act of 1998.

All checks are instructed through our encrypted online forms and all reports, and tracking sheets, are securely hosted on our in-house document management platform. PeopleCheck creates a bespoke platform for each client at no additional charge. This ensures end-to-end integrity of a robust checking process whilst enabling a very simple yet effective candidate and client experience. The Portal/system has obtained independent verification, including ISO 27001, ISO 27018, and SSAE 16 audits.

With over 200 active clients PeopleCheck conducts employment checks, anti-money laundering inquiries, vendor/contractor screening and management team due diligence. The key to our continued success is our discretion, the quality of our reports, our responsiveness & the high quality of the candidate/ client experience.

We additionally have an on-going process whereby our data sources and databases are constantly reviewed and, if required, we upgrade resources or add new providers to our datacenter.
