CBS, one of the UK’s leading employment screening companies, is to change its processes to better serve long-term career-breakers – who are usually women.
This is due to issues highlighted by a woman, Debs Brady. Returning to work after a 21-year employment break after raising her family, she was recently offered a part-time position with RDT, a Kent-based insuretech software house, who have a long-term partnership with CBS for vital employment screening.
As she did not claim any benefits and her household bills were in her husband’s name, there was a limited paper trail to show what she had been doing since her previous role.
Debs’ experience has caused CBS, which has a strong female-led team, to reanalyse its screening processes in order to help female career-breakers taking part in returnships.
