Midot and Brink’s

A long standing partnership

Brinks has been recognized as a leading company in their field for the past 160 years, providing services in over 40 countries world-wide, including: CIT (Cash in Transit) – Domestic Armored Transport of valuables of all kinds; Full service ATM – Automated Teller Banking Machine, financial reconciliation and security management, and BGS (Brinks Global Services) – International transportation services for banknote repatriation, jewelry, precious metals, securities, credit cards, medical supplies and other valuables.

The nature of the Brinks’ operations requires the strictest security in all areas, beginning with the recruitment process. The brand and their clients depend on the unquestionable integrity and trustworthiness of their employees at all times. This demands a vetting process carefully suited to the task.

The challenge

Brinks has partnered with MIDOT for 12 years already, developing a test questionnaire which ticks all the Brinks boxes for recruitment and hiring needs. The Brinks brand and reputation are a byword for customers’ safety, security and peace of mind, all of which must be reflected throughout the vetting process.

When seeking a candidate screening method, Brinks needed a process able to identify potential tendency to occupational crime, levels of trustworthiness and other company-culture priorities. Brinks sought a solution able to filter out potentially problematic behavior right at the very earliest stages of recruitment.

After assessing various options MIDOT were chosen for their high level of service, close working relationship and their flexibility and constant innovation in seeking solutions- defining the test parameters to reflect company priorities.

The solution

The testing process developed by MIDOT for Brinks is consistently efficient and effective. The ability to determine through MIDOT’s easy to use Podium platform whether a candidate is inappropriate and should not progress to the next stage translates into time and money saved in the long-term.

The test itself has undergone precise alterations to best reflect Brinks’ profile – discretion, security and integrity in all positions. The unique nature of the population segments Brinks attracts as candidates, has been taken into account in developing testing, calibrating norms – with more focus on cultural problems such as drinking and less on service orientation – and creating a level starting point for all examinees.

“Brink’s has partnered with MIDOT for the past 12 years, providing us with a test that “ticks all the boxes” for our recruitment and hiring needs… The test itself has undergone precise adjustments to best reflect Brinks’ profile for all our positions in terms of discretion, security and integrity. And, we’ve seen the results in the field: increased security, minimization and prevention of internal theft, and an overall improvement in the quality of candidates who become Brinks’ employees.”

In Conclusion

“We’ve seen the results in the field; increased security, minimization and prevention of internal theft and, in general, an improvement in the quality of candidates who become Brinks’ employees.”
