LINKAGE Q1 (2022) - BREAK THE BIAS
By AMCHAM T&T’s Security Committee
In our Q3 2021 edition, the AMCHAM T&T Security Committee shared on contractor vetting as an integral component of securing one’s business by ensuring suitable entities and personnel are selected for work within your organisations. In this article, we want to focus on a vital component of this process, that of the background investigator. This individual or group of persons can offer an invaluable contribution in the vetting process, for both the selection of contractors and permanent employees. This article will look at the skill set and qualifications that should be considered before hiring or contracting investigators. We will also discuss a recommended format for reports that may be submitted by your investigators.
o On behalf of a financial institution, an investigator may enquire of a candidate’s former employer if a candidate has a favourable track record in the handling of high volumes of cash.
o On behalf of a business that provides office-based administrative services, an investigator may enquire if a candidate approaches her or his work in an organised manner.
o On behalf of a restaurant or clothing store, an investigator may enquire if a candidate gets along well with members of the public from all walks of life.
