SOCIAL SCREENING TECHNOLOGY:
DO HR/RISK MANAGERS NEED TO ACT?
What do the secure key fob and Fama have in common? Every few years, a technology emerges that provides such valuable information that it changes how professionals do business. Employers everywhere have concluded that our AI-powered social background checks are as important as technologies like the secure key fob that keep hackers out of computers. Here’s the business case:
HOW IT WORKS: ai-powered SOCIAL BACKGROUND CHECKS
Every day, Fama’s tools detect thousands of bad potential hires applying to work for our clients, as well as their employees who exhibit harassing, bigoted, drug use and other risky behaviors.
A truly disruptive technology that is advancing the hiring landscape, Fama gathers publicly available online content to draw out who a person really is and reduce the incidence of sexual harassment, bigotry and other types of risk in your organization.
FAMA AI-POWERED SOCIAL SCREENING
Detect harassment, bigotry and risky behavior
Scan entire public web and social presence
Automated image/video flagging
Fully customized search criteria
Integrated into ATS/HRIS systems
We help prevent hostile work environments with software that legally informs HR departments of bad influences they might not otherwise detect. Employers now have the ability (and based on the availability of the technology, perhaps the obligation) to understand what employees and contractors may be bringing risky attitudes and behaviors to work that may otherwise avoid detection and create a hostile work environment.
Surprising prevalence of undetected behaviors
Over 60% of employees exhibit some form of adverse behavior or attitudes. How could their behavior be undermining your attempts to grow and keep a positive work environment?
THE BUSINESS CASE FOR FAMA
Through our research and ongoing work with clients, we’ve identified a clear connection between online behaviors and offline risk. These behaviors often have unexpected and steep financial and reputational costs that standard background checks will not help you prevent:
Traditional background checks miss countless warning signs
Boards are taking back money from toxic workplaces
Toxic hires cost enterprises over $1.2 million per year
Manual online screening costs millions each year to FCRA violations
Employees are damaging company brands well after they’re hired
…so what’s the key to removing risk from the organization?
Fama delivers your social media screening reports within 24 hours and with the availability of this data, employers have every reason to update their screening process to include Fama.
⌚️ REPORTS IN UNDER 24 HOURS
Standard background reports can take 3-7 days to get you the information you need. Fama's solution harnesses machine learning and data science to get you what you need in under 24 hours so you can focus on the things that matter.
🔁 WORKFORCE MONITORING
Pre-hire background checks and initial audits are helpful, but do little to mitigate risk in the long term. Fama’s solution allows you to schedule recurring, automated screenings based on department, seniority, or behavior to maintain low corporate risk.
