Over 70% of Human Resource practitioners believe that the employee screening process is irritating and annoying, and once done, the report is filed and forgotten. Very few use the information gleaned from the background check to ensure an employee’s smooth onboarding and help them fit into the organisation’s culture.

If the candidate has completed an integrity assessment before being employed, the intentions of the individual will have been assessed. They can be used in the development, but if not, this could be considered part of the career path development because it is an excellent indicator of the employee’s capability and intentions.

Once the employee becomes part of your team, your focus needs to shift away from examining past behaviour towards the future and maintaining the safe work environment that’s so important to the success of your business. Are your employees doing or saying things in their off-hours that pose a risk to your organisation?

Current figures indicate that over 6000 tweets are made per second globally, and five new Facebook profiles are opened every 10 seconds. On social media, we all unwittingly tend to expose more than we would do in an interview. This gives a glimpse into the person that will enter your workplace and provides a good indication of whether they will fit your organisation’s corporate culture and if they could pose a possible risk to your organisation.

The Social Media Risk Assessment, available locally and internationally, has significant benefits to companies as it allows companies to monitor activity that could damage the business’s reputation.
