Social Media Check FAQs

No items found.
What comes up in a social media background check?

A social media background check is just like the other types of background checks. It's an opportunity for businesses to look at someone's past behavior and see if it will match with their future behavior.

Are social media background checks legal?

Is social media screening legal? Basically, yes, but it has to be done right. Scrolling through an applicant's social media profile on your own can lead to potential HR violations and subsequent lawsuits.

Why should you consider using social media to make hiring decisions?

Social media is the perfect tool to find the right candidates for your company. It is a way to find out whether or not they would be a good fit for your company culture. A study conducted by the Boston Consulting Group found that companies who use social media in hiring have an average cost per hire of $5,000 less than those who don't. Social media can also help you make sure that you're hiring the right people. It's easy to see how much time someone has spent on their social media accounts and how many followers they have, which can help you determine if they are active enough in their field to be hired for your company.

What does a social media background check consist of?

It involves checking the information on a candidate's social media profiles. It consists of verification of any evidence that the person has had inappropriate conversations or interactions on various social media platforms. A social media background check usually involves searching for information about the candidate's online presence, such as their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn profiles. It may also include searching for information about the people they are connected to and what they have posted about them.

Background Check FAQ's

What background check do I need?
This depends on the industry and type of role you are recruiting for. To determine whether you need reference checks, identity checks, bankruptcy checks, civil background checks, credit checks for employment or any of the other background checks we offer, chat to our team of dedicated account managers.
Why should employers check the background of potential employees?
Many industries have compliance-related employment check requirements. And even if your industry doesn’t, remember that your staff have access to assets and data that must be protected. When you employ a new staff member you need to be certain that they have the best interests of your business at heart. Carrying out comprehensive background checking helps mitigate risk and ensures a safer hiring decision.
How long do background checks take?
Again, this depends on the type of checks you need. Simple identity checks can be carried out in as little as a few hours but a worldwide criminal background check for instance might take several weeks. A simple pre-employment check package takes around a week. Our account managers are specialists and can provide detailed information into which checks you need and how long they will take.
Can you do a background check online?
All Veremark checks are carried out online and digitally. This eliminates the need to collect, store and manage paper documents and information making the process faster, more efficient and ensures complete safety of candidate data and documents.
What are the benefits of a background check?
In a competitive marketplace, making the right hiring decisions is key to the success of your company. Employment background checks enables you to understand more about your candidates before making crucial decisions which can have either beneficial or catastrophic effects on your business.
What does a background check show?
Background checks not only provide useful insights into a candidate’s work history, skills and education, but they can also offer richer detail into someone’s personality and character traits. This gives you a huge advantage when considering who to hire. Background checking also ensures that candidates are legally allowed to carry out certain roles, failed criminal and credit checks could prevent them from working with vulnerable people or in a financial function.
