We are pleased to announce that our team is presenting an upcoming webcast on social media and employment. Social Intelligence president, Bianca Lager, and business development manager, Jonny Hawley, will host the hour-long presentation next week. “Social Media and Employment: Potent Benefits, Easily Avoided Risks” will begin at 1:00 PM ET on September 27th.
Over the past ten years, social media has become pervasive part of our lives. Because it offers such valuable insight about a candidate, it makes sense that companies have started to use social media to vet potential employees. However, it can be problematic for an organization to go through a candidate’s social media in-house.
During the webcast, you’ll learn:
-How social media background checks can reduce your risk for negligent hiring
-What information is relevant to a hiring decision and how to avoid protected class violations
-What a thorough social media search should include
-Compliance rules for conducting an online screening
-Real life examples of social media causing consequences for both organizations and employees
-What to avoid when scouting a social media vendor
-Best practices for creating a social media policy at your company
