Podcast: Getting acquainted

By Tom Lodewyke|02 June 2017

In this special episode of The Lawyers Weekly Show, Lawyers Weekly, in partnership with InfoTrack, assembled a round table to discuss the critical need for police and reference checks to be more widely implemented across both the legal community and the corporate world.

Recruiting the right people should be front of mind for any business. The staff you have are the sole determiners of your company culture, revenue and reputation.
