What is PES (Pre-Engagement Screening)?
PES (Pre-engagement screening for contractors) is the process of investigating the backgrounds of all potential candidates before they are placed on-site. This involves a series of documentary evidence and security checks to prove that candidates are who they say they are and that they’re of sound ‘fit and proper’ status. PES is commonly used to verify the accuracy of an applicant's claims as well as to discover any possible risk in employing the person. Each client of Grovelands has a PES agreement in place which specifies which level of screening should be met. Each candidate must complete screening before they can begin their assignment.
