Our processes for screening have evolved over time. Security regulations have changed, new risks have emerged and access to different sources of screening data, such as social media, have become available.
During 2016, we reviewed our screening policy and practices, particularly for high risk employees such as those carrying firearms or working in hostile environments. This will lead to the development of a Group-wide training programme for HR and recruitment practitioners. The new programme will be mandatory and delivered online, supplementing existing training related to our HR core standards, regulatory and customer requirements.
