Bomb

We care about people risk.

People should be a company’s greatest asset –but sometimes they can be its greatest risk.

Missing an employment risk isn’t just about hiring a poor worker, it’s about employing a time bomb. This time bomb can be poised to harm an organisation in potentially profound ways with devastating financial and reputational repercussions.

RISQ Group is devoted to preventing this time bomb from ever being hired and detecting those that may already be in an organisation’s ranks. Our keen attention to detail keeps organisations of all sizes safe.

Quote

“RISQ Group is incredibly thorough and they are always thinking about a better way of serving. They go beyond. And they never just tick boxes, they let us know what boxes need to be ticked and how best to do it. Their level of care for the whole of our organisation has always given us great confidence.”

KNOWN powered by RISQ is a dynamic repository of past screening outcomes that successive screening and verification “check-ups” can build upon for the benefit of seller and consumer alike.  Repeat screenings cost money and increase the chance of errors.  KNOWN means that ongoing checks always cover new ground and keep the ongoing screening process efficient and effective.

If someone hasn’t been KNOWN by RISQ, they haven’t really been screened. KNOWN is a screening and verification lifecycle tool that reduces costs and time-to-screen while increasing screening certainty.  Employers and consumers know exactly who they’re getting before and during engagement; employees and service providers enjoy increased confidence and ownership of screening records that journey with them throughout their careers; markets and industry sectors deepen their credibility.  Trust wins.

For The Service Provider

KNOWN powered by RISQ helps you stand out from anyone else who hasn’t had their credentials verified giving you a competitive advantage and starting your relationship with potential clients on the right foot.  KNOWN gives you one of the greatest competitive advantages available: trust.

Get KNOWN and Be Trusted.

For The Consumer

Trust can’t be taken for granted, especially when the things you value –your family, your home and your finances– are at stake.

When you see the KNOWN powered by RISQ logo next to your service provider, you know they have had their most important credentials independently verified by the go-to screener in Australia.

If they’re KNOWN, they can be trusted.
