Social Media Checks
This check retrieves publicly available information on social media sites to provide insight into a candidate’s background and character. Our searches will highlight the behavioural risks identified within social media profiles. This is now an essential part of the background screening process, particularly when hiring.
What Do We Uncover?
Our social media reports provide a comprehensive review of the social media profiles and social media ‘footprint’ of an individual. We cover 10 active profiles and all key social media sites from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to Instagram and Tik Tok. Such searches extend to a period of three years.
CV Insight also provides a regular monitoring feature, to conduct social media checks on a regular basis (every 6 months) to ensure you are mitigating any potential risk to your company as frequently as possible.
Risks include: Extreme Views / Opinions, Hate & Discriminatory Behaviour, Inappropriate / Undesirable Content, Illegal Activities, Addiction & Substance Abuse, Violent Content, Sexually Explicit Content, & More.
The Key Benefits
Reduce Hiring Costs: Using advanced behavioural insights in the hiring process can enable more efficient, consistent decision-making, lowering the overall cost of hiring.
Protect Company Reputation: Improved hiring decisions can insulate against reputational loss, as any negative act of the employee in any media could be associated with the company.
Maintain Company Culture: A bad employee can negatively impact a whole team and negatively impact the company’s culture.
Improving Employment Efficiencies: Reduce the costs of removing a bad hire and the resultant loss of time, productivity and associated hassle of firing.
Social Media Checks
When conducting social media background checks in-house, you expose yourself to claims of bias because you cannot “unsee” any protected characteristic information. Using an independent expert third party is more consistent, faster and compliant.
We can turnaround social media reports in 48 hours.
Social media checks refer to the practice of reviewing an individual’s online presence and activity on social media platforms as part of the pre-employment screening process. Employers may conduct these checks to gather additional information about a candidate, assess their character, conduct, and suitability for the role.
Adverse Internet Checks
Adverse Internet Checks are a report that highlights risks found through structured internet searches. This check supplements the background screening process when hiring and for regular employee checks.
What Do We Uncover?
This search begins with looking for adverse content, risks or ‘prominent’ information. Using AI, and our software’s proprietary algorithms, the search gathers many thousands of search engine results, from multiple search engines to automatically identify relevant information.
Adverse media risks are found through structured queries on the internet. Even for individuals with an extensive online presence, we will review news articles, blogs, court records, videos, interviews, academic papers, fundraising pages, and much more. With structured queries, we will highlight at least 5 issues (if applicable).
Risks include: Extreme Views / Opinions, Hate & Discriminatory Behaviour, Inappropriate / Undesirable Content, Illegal Activities, Violent Content, & More.Get In Touch
Investigative Online Due Diligence Check
This check includes social media searches as outlined above plus websites, blogs and deep web searches. This check is typically carried out for more sensitive high-risk roles as well as Senior Management, Board members.
