Harri, the workforce operating system built for the hospitality industry, has today announced a partnership with TrustID, a leading provider of identity checking and scanning solutions. The two businesses have joined forces to launch an integration for operators that will check, verify and confirm an applicant’s Right to Work status in the UK, usually within one hour.
The technology will not only seamlessly integrate across the Harri digital platform, but also with the TrustID app to access, validate and authenticate potential employees, whilst fulfilling on behalf of an operator, their legal requirement to safely store all documentation. The integration therefore offers both a web and app based workflow for operators to choose from.
“Through creating and adopting such an advanced integration with TrustID, we are committed to simplifying the Right to Work process for operators across the hospitality industry. We want to ensure they’re legally compliant quickly and easily, but also remove the tedious admin heavy nature of manual data entry for head office teams and hiring managers,” said Peter Willis, Managing Director of Harri UK.
In order to remove the risk of human error for operators and the need for tedious manual data entry, the integration automatically transfers candidate identification information between both systems using secure API’s. This means that the two systems are able to securely pass candidates and their documentation back and forth without the need for manual intervention. The simplicity and smart nature of the technology means hiring managers no longer need to undertake the monotonous, admin heavy task of entering and saving individual applicant data.
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Harri to ensure operators across the hospitality industry are legally compliant when it comes to Right to Work legislation in the UK. Keeping up to date with which documents employees can present, what checks need to be carried out and understanding if work restrictions apply or if follow up checks are required can be a burden and often slows down the onboarding process. We remove this headache for operators with quick and easy validation of identify documents and confirmation of employees’ Right to Work status,” added David Park, Commercial Director, TrustID.
