The CheckSocial Story

Digital footprin checks by CheckSocial

We believe that social media screening should be part of every hiring decision.

Insights from your candidates’ online behaviour can inform your hiring decisions by giving you a more in-depth understanding of who they are and whether they are aligned with your organisation’s values and culture.

Over 75% of employers Google or look up their candidates on social media.

Unfortunately, this manual process is not only time consuming, it comes with a high chance of missed insights, the risk of human bias, discrimination and breached privacy laws.

So, we had an idea.

We could build a platform that automates the effort of manual searches, removes the risks involved and provides organisations with comprehensive and compliant reports that highlight any red flags in their candidates’ online activity.

And so CheckSocial’s digital footprint checks were born, with the vision of empowering organisations to confidently hire a workforce they can trust.
