Why social media is a key part of background screening

What employees say online reflects on who they truly are.

Firms are increasingly requesting social media checks to reveal publicly available content about prospective hires and existing employees to discover potentially undesirable behaviour or views.

However, this isn’t as simple as some may think. Employers must consider if they have a legitimate basis for searching for public negative social media content and weigh that up against the person’s right to privacy.

This webinar will dive into safeguarding company reputations, protecting staff, customers and the public via thorough social media checks, to minimise the risk of a bad hire.
