A ffirm Software (Affirm) announce partnership with WorkPro that will provide Onboard Express, our digital new employee onboarding service with the functionality to perform real time Work Rights checks..
Work Rights checks are a critical part of every onboarding process. The check can only be completed using the Department’s VEVO database either directly or through an accredited provider.”– WorkPro Founder, Tania Evans
The partnership will embed Workpro technology within Onboard Express, that will allow a seamless integration with the Department of Home Affairs Visa Entitlement Verification (VEVO) for our customers to improve adherence to legislated compliance and deliver job-readiness efficiency.
This new service is now in final testing with a release date planned for early June 2020. This new feature continues to demonstrate Affirms mantra of listening to the customers’ voice, as it was one of our largest clients that requested this new functionality and they will be the first to implement, and a rollout plan will extend to other customers throughout the year.
Other Workpro services, such as Australian Police Checks, will be introduced later in 2020, as Affirm continues to rollout new innovative features.
Affirm is a leading provider of paperless new employee Onboarding services in Australia with over 10 years of experience. Affirm is always seeking to innovate and deliver leading edge solutions to our customers. So when our customers asked us to consider providing a Work Rights check for new employees we had 2 options:
1. Develop our own integration to the immigration Department of Home Affairs, or
2. Collaborate with a proven solution partner to the Department
Following a thorough market evaluation, Affirm settled on the market leading services developed by WorkPro.
Affirm and WorkPro have announced a long-term partnership to deliver these valuable Work Rights Checks that will deliver to companies’ extended efficiency and compliance benefits.
Affirm CEO, Mr Bryan Ericson, said “We are pleased to join forces with WorkPro, the market leader of background screening services in Australia”. “We look forward to extending the WorkPro ‘Police’ check and ‘Working with Children’ check service to our customers later in 2020”.
WorkPro Founder, Tania Evans stated:
“Work Rights checks are a critical part of every onboarding process. The check can only be completed using the Department’s VEVO database either directly or through an accredited provider.”
“These checks are a legislated obligation for all employers and must form part of a robust workforce compliance program. WorkPro is delighted to develop a strategic partnership with Affirm Software. The partnership provides value by mitigating risks and delivering compliance efficiency in business processes and operations for Affirm customers.”
“We look forward to launching the Work Right check service to Affirms customer network and expanding the suite of services to Affirm customers shortly.”
