Management screening

Why screening?

For a safe working environment, integrity is an important value. Integrity refers to honesty, sincerity and reliability in personal and business relationships, in academic teaching and research, and in governance and management. Screening can help mitigate risks of non-integrated behaviour. Directors and management have an exemplary role in this. It was therefore decided to introduce pilot screening of management for a period of two years. 

Integrity risks involve threats arising from not acting professionally, reliably and with due care. Violations of integrity can occur in any organisation: confidential data becoming public, a director overclaiming, conflicts of interest, theft of goods, dangerous substances, etc.

Which functions are screened?

These are the positions in which there is an above-average risk of integrity violation and where particularly high demands are made on the integrity of the employee, so-called 'vulnerable positions'.

Directors, supervisors, professors and management have a special responsibility in this. They have a role model function in the sense that they instil integrity and respectful behaviour, and they have an important role in initiating and reviewing activities. Risks of unethical behaviour can be mitigated by screening employees.

Screening takes place before appointment to any of the following positions:

What forms of screening are there?

  1. Standard screening: Proof of identity, Education check, Work experience, Integrity statement, VOG (security manager)
  2. Financial/directorate screening: standard + credit check (finance, facilities, management and board support, real estate, Information Services division director).
