Hiring mistakes can  impact your reputation and client relationships. Digital footprint checks can help reduce these risks and help differentiate your offering in the market.

Empowering internal talent managers to protect workplace culture

1 in 5 candidates have a red flag on their online profile that would cause a hiring manager to reconsider hiring them. Protect your company culture and avoid the cost and brand damage that can result from a bad hire with a digital footprint check.

Combatting insider threats for security vetting officers

In 2018, digital footprint checks became mandatory for all Australian Government security clearances. CheckSocial’s digital footprint check reports are compliant with government requirements and have also been used to counter insider threats in other sectors including critical infrastructure and mining.
