What is a Social Media Check?

A Social Media Check is a form of background check carried out by skilled researchers, with the aim of mitigating risks to brand, reputation, confidentiality, and data security. Social Media Checks uncover adverse behaviours such as content that may harm the employer’s image, potential privacy breaches, bullying, racism, nudity, and excessive bad language.

When to conduct a Social Media Check?

We recommend conducting online and Social Media Checks as part of the employment selection process. At this stage, employers can gain a comprehensive understanding of a candidate’s suitability for the workplace. 

Social Media Checks that are integrated into annual staff screenings are also incredibly valuable, helping employers to manage existing risks within the place of work. 

How Do Social Media Checks Benefit Employers? 

Social Media Background Checks play a pivotal role in safeguarding the brand and reputation of an organisation. By delving into candidates’ online behaviours, they offer valuable insights into their suitability for a role.  

Undesirable traits (such as bullying, racism or excessive profanity) and content that may compromise company values (including connections to proscribed organisations or groups linked to violence or extremism) are identified and reported in a compliant manner. This empowers the employer to manage the risk in their preferred way.
