Creating and maintaining a culture of safety requires careful orchestration of organizational elements. At the 2021 Marketplace Risk Management Conference, experts from First Advantage will present in two sessions dedicated to the latest trends and hot topics surrounding background screening and safety in today’s workplace.
In the session “Creating a Culture of Safety in a Gig Economy,” Ranjeev Teelock, Chief Product Officer at First Advantage, will join Allen Lohse, Director, Legal and Regulatory, for Lyft to discuss the pioneering rideshare company’s strategic decision to implement continuous criminal records monitoring and how this helped bolster the platform’s safety profile. With continuous monitoring in place, Lyft now receives a criminal background screening report whenever a driver has reportable activity, enabling the company to take decisive action to mitigate risk. Session attendees will hear first-hand why Lyft chose to screen drivers nationwide and how this move supports a culture of safety.
During “Background Check Round Robin: Hot Topics, Current Trends, Regulatory Issues, Platform Mistakes,” Bret Jardine, Executive Vice President and General Counsel for First Advantage, will join a panel discussion exploring various perspectives on the current state of background checks, including the latest trends, common mistakes made by marketplaces, the regulatory issues facing platforms, what marketplaces don’t but should know, the most common complaints among users and more.
