Social media screening is not limited to pre-employment, as employers can conduct periodic checks on current employees to ensure alignment with company values and policies, especially for those in high-profile or public-facing positions.Allowing applicants to review and cleanse their social media profiles can also help ensure compliance with laws and regulations related to privacy and discrimination, as it gives them a chance to address any potential issues and avoids any legal or ethical challenges that may arise.
It’s important to note that screening should always be conducted in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, including those related to privacy and discrimination.Employers should also ensure that their screening processes are transparent, fair, and consistently applied across all candidates and employees.
At CI Screening, we conduct social media searches with the applicant’s consent. Our search scans both publicly available open-source data and private social media accounts, evaluating seven risk categories that may impact the candidate’s suitability for the role.
Any relevant content found in each category is marked as a ‘red flag,’ and all the red-flagged content is supported with evidence, actionable, and documented in a report. Our seven risk categories include extremist groups, swearing and profanity, negative sentiment, hate speech, violent images, potential nudity, and toxic language.
Social media screening has become an important tool for employers looking to hire the best candidates and mitigate risks to their reputation and bottom line.
By evaluating a candidate’s online presence, companies can gain valuable insights into their behaviour and character and make informed hiring decisions.
Social media screening can also be used to monitor current employees and ensure that their online activity aligns with the company’s values and policies, as well as monitor their welfare. A thorough and compliant social media screening process can help companies build a strong, ethical, and successful workforce.
