The Better Hiring Institute is a not-for-profit social enterprise driving the development of a modern, agile UK labour market accelerating the post-COVID economic recovery. Working closely with all the major UK industries, The Better Hiring Institute is driving standardisation, best practice, and digital innovation to reduce hiring times, enable portability, and improve safeguarding. Cross-industry themes include digital standardised referencing, open banking, digital right to work checks, education credentialing, and digital identity. The Better Hiring Institute is already working with many of the UK's largest, household names.
We are an independent body which includes experts, advisors, and industry, bringing together existing frameworks, standards, best practice and developing frameworks where they do not exist. This is with the view to harmonising and modernising hiring in the UK labour market. In collaboration with UK Government, we have created The Better Hiring Institute to promote safe recruitment across all sectors including tackling various recruitment fraud, which has increased during COVID. We are championing digital solutions to enable truly remote recruitment as many businesses will operate this way in future, developing best practice, and bring about standardisation of recruitment practice both within and across sectors.
The Better Hiring Institute provides information and advice to hiring companies to enable them to recruit people safely, securely, quickly and in a consistent way. We are a key advisory group to Government departments on any aspect of hiring, safeguarding, recruitment for the UK labour market. Our Advisory Board bring together key organisations who specialise in specific aspects of hiring, labour market compliance, and worker welfare.
We host sub-committees for every major UK industry with some of the most well-known organisations from each sector. If you would like to join the industry sub-committee for your sector and help to shape the future hiring practice in the UK, advise UK Government, and gain insights from experts in fields as diverse as digital identity and right to work and other thought leaders in the sector, get in touch below.
