The Checks

Based on the 7 key Index measures of online behaviour (Social People Index), our social media background checks utilises powerful screening and online behaviour evaluation tools designed to fairly and objectively assess a candidateā€™s social media profile over a 2, 3, 5 or 10 year period. The background check result is presented in an easy to interpret report which helps protect an employer without breaching trust with the candidate.

ā€œStaff and reputation are two of the most valuable assets of our company. Our investment in SP-Index provides a useful benchmark, which together with other metrics, ensure our staff remain our highest priority. Their success ultimately promotes the company’s reputation for integrity and longevity.ā€

-Andrew Turberville Smith, COO Weatherbys Bank
