Fama has spent years compiling research and studying the impact of online behavior to offline behavior. Using this information, we have crafted several studies around the types of behaviors you will see online and their costs to your organization.
The Cost of A Toxic Hire
Toxic employees can go unnoticed for years and their acts of harassment, bigotry, fraud and other violations of company policy can ravage the bottom line. Working with our clients and the broader research community, we’ve found fresh data showing that toxic hires cost more than you might think.
The Cost of Sexual Harassment
When employers consider the costs of workplace harassment, they often focus on legal costs. In reality, workplace harassment comes at a steep cost to those who suffer. Beyond that, the true cost of harassment includes decreased productivity, increased turnover, and reputational harm—all of which hurt the bottom line.
Financially Motivated Internal Threats
Credit scores are often a failing indicator of relevant debt. They examine a person’s credit history rather than the immediate circumstances that drive them to steal from a business. How can employers identify those situations where an employee may have their back against the wall, driven to do something drastic?
Current Employees and Cyberbullying
Employees are on social media more than ever. Interpreting interactions between employees on social media without context can be difficult but if your managers are bullying their direct reports online you need to know. What do you do if you come across a post that looks like cyberbullying?
Interpreting Racist Tweets
Hiring managers are tasked with preventing bigots from entering the organization. However, in today’s divided political climate, there is often disagreement over how to interpret comments. What do you do if someone makes a post that may be inappropriate but may also have alternative interpretations?
Identifying Malicious Computer Hackers
Corporate data breaches have dominated the headlines over the past few years. While high-profile attacks typically originate far from your headquarters, many of these incidents involve trusted insiders that open the door for hackers. How do you identify those malicious insiders before it is too late?
