Social Media Made Simple

In a little more than a decade, social media has become fundamental to the way billions engage with one another — now more than ever for easing pandemic isolation and building community.
With social media being an important part of many people’s lives, it’s not surprising social media has influenced the world of recruitment with HR professionals using social network background checks for hiring and screening needs. Social media background checks provide vital information that help employers minimize the risk of a bad hire.

Our Social Media Partnership

Sterling Backcheck has partnered with Fama to help companies protect their brands by screening potential and current employees using publicly available online information. Our social media partnership reduces risk with a solution that enhances ethical decision-making and compliance by proactively identifying behaviors such as bigotry, sexism, and violence, and recognize practices that align with a company’s culture and values.

The Social Media Imperative

With more than half of the world’s population on social media, it’s become a norm in HR to rely on search engines for hiring and screening needs. According to a recent Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder survey:
employers use social networks to research job candidates
of employers use search engines to conduct research on job candidates
of employers have found social or online content that caused them not to hire candidates
of employers have reprimanded or fired an employee based on content found online
