Get the peace of mind that your new hires don’t hold any positions in competing companies. Zinc has you covered globally.
Meet regulatory requirements to check that the candidate isn’t a disqualified director in certain countries. Conducting a directorship check on a new employee can be important for a few reasons:
- Legal Compliance: Depending on the industry or position, there may be legal requirements for directors or officers of a company to meet certain qualifications or not have certain disqualifications. Conducting a directorship check can help ensure that the new employee meets these requirements and that your organization is in compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
- Reputation and Risk: Directors or officers of other organizations may have reputations that could reflect negatively on your organization. Conducting a directorship check can help you identify any potential risks to your organization's reputation or operations.
- Conflict of Interest: If the new employee is a director or officer of another organization, there could be potential conflicts of interest with their duties and responsibilities at your organization. Conducting a directorship check can help you identify any potential conflicts and take appropriate steps to mitigate them.
Conducting a directorship check can help you make informed decisions about the suitability of a new employee for your organization and ensure that your organization is operating in compliance with relevant laws and regulations.
To turn on the check, head to your packages page in your Zinc account: https://app.zincwork.com/packages. Click on an existing package or click the “Create new package” button. From the toggles, switch on the Directorship toggle.
Once you have toggled the check on, you are ready to go! You do not have to specify a country the candidate has lived in, Zinc will work this out for you. And we will run searches in 200 countries globally on any company registers globally - public and private.
After you send out the request, the candidate will be asked to provide consent to start. Zinc will go and contact the institution directly. Your candidate reports will display if your candidate holds any directorships or officer roles in a company. We will display the name, birth year and month and where possible include a link to the companies register.
