Helping companies prevent toxic behavior and reduce brand risk
Fama helps protect companies from brand risk by finding indicators of toxic behavior, culture fit, and performance. By applying machine learning to publicly available online information and internal HR data throughout the employee lifecycle, we help ensure that when it comes to understanding your people and safeguarding your reputation, you don’t miss a thing.
Background screenING for the 21st century
Standard background checks don’t catch everything they should. While background checks help verify important information, few can ensure that current and future employees are aligned with your mission and values.
Even fewer can predict whether they’ll exhibit toxic behavior. As sexual harassment, bigotry, and other workplace issues move to the forefront of our society, companies that rely on standard background checks risk brand damage and lost authenticity.
Fama brings compliant, AI-based employment screening into the 21st century to create a productive, welcoming workplace and get you the information you need.
In 2018 alone, Fama has found over:
instances of misogyny
insinuations of violence
instances of bigotry
instances of criminal behavior
We believe that...
1. No employee should have to worry about harassMENT & discriminatION
Our society has established numerous safeguards to ensure that businesses and organizations are protected from violent criminals and dangerous individuals. The idea being that no one should have to worry about facing physical hard while at the workplace. However, up until now, we've completely neglected any attempt to protect employees from mental or emotional distress. Our belief is that organizations should care as much about the mental well being of individuals as they do about their physical.
2. Online & OFFLINE behavior should be held to the same standard
The internet has revolutionized the world we live in and provides countless opportunities for everyone across the globe. While most have harnessed this widespread platform for good, countless individuals use the internet as a place to share their true biases and proclivity for hate. Fama believes that negative behavior regardless of outlet should be treated and considered equally when choosing who works for your business. Hateful statements online should carry the same weight as those mentioned during an interview and to turn a blind eye to these behaviors should be viewed as negligent.
3. Employees Should embody Your company's mission and values
Your employees should be an extension of your business and reflect who you are as a company. For companies just getting started this is an easily managed task, but as your company scales it can be difficult to show the same attention to who you hire. We believe you shouldn't have to forgo quality as your quantity increases. Companies should be able to ensure that everyone brought on board should carry the same support for your company's mission and values.
