Background checks are essential for the trust and safety of a business.
However, it is no longer enough to run the standard set of criminal background checks and drug tests. As a new wave of threats moves into the forefront of our society, centered around sexual harassment, bigotry, and other types of culture-based risk, the way we protect our workforce has shifted.
Countless instances of toxic behavior are manifesting online in social media, news, and web results, which often say more about the candidate than their interviews or criminal checks will reveal. In fact, over 70% of employers now search for candidates online, and many others have looked to social media to understand who they’re hiring before they damage the business.
But these are more than just numbers. There is now a clear pattern that toxic behaviors, and other methods that companies have tried to find these people, have steep financial and reputational costs:
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
