2022 Europe Council Annual Conference

Thank you for attending the 2022 Europe Annual Conference.

The Future of Employment Screening


Just as the world of work has changed beyond recognition to what it was pre-pandemic, so has the employment screening industry from a vendor, a customer and a candidate lens. Speed and candidate experience are ‘must haves’ in our new world, and process automation is now expected as standard.  However, in line with seismic digital advances, the security of - and focus on - personal data has never been more important with secure transfers of personal data across shores a key focus.  It’s therefore critical as an industry we keep abreast of the rapidly changing landscape of employment screening.

Our 2022 PBSA Europe Annual Conference, which we are holding face to face (and virtually) for our PBSA Members at the prestigious Cranfield University venue, in UK, focuses on these critical areas, sharing ‘must know’ latest thinking and developments on how we, as individual businesses and as an industry, embrace post pandemic opportunities and trends, and continue to evolve.
