MHG has a world-class reputation in the field of employee vetting, offering a bespoke service with a global reach.

We utilise our specialist expertise to protect clients’ most valuable assets, their personnel and businesses. MHG’s skilled analysts, vetted to Government clearance standard, are recognised experts utilising years of training and real-world investigative practice.

MHG’s seamless, automated service runs from the initial identity process, through harvesting the required data from, and about, the subject person, to a complete review of the gathered material, resulting in a robust certified report and advice.

Our work includes deep identity and criminal record checks, the verification of academic and professional credentials, alongside reviews of sensitive documentation covering financial probity, insolvency, and other aspects of corporate risk.

Our research involves sanctions checks, organised crime, adverse associates, media exposure, risk reduction and potential malpractice either internally or externally motivated.

Service levels – Our approach is different: extending research to minimise every perceived risk

The MHG service level offering is formulated on a simple, but robust philosophy: We engage with clients to determine the perceived and possible risk posed by the person, people or organisations with which they work. We continuously review how ‘insider threat’ levels manifest and how harm could be inflicted on their organisations. Our service is vital, and our careful, evidence-led approach underpins our client relationships and promotes harmonious working practices.

All MHG service levels utilise our bespoke web-based secure portal to harvest the required data, delivering speed and efficiency, digitally.
