Five Tips - Hiring and Screening
To be successful using online Social Media resources for employee background screening:
- Use LinkedIn: The social media platform used most for job seekers and hiring is LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter following in third. LinkedIn is geared toward professionals and recruiting.
- Take a Personal Look: A potential employees personal life and character can be obtained through their Facebook and Twitter accounts. Employers should use these platforms consistently with all potential employees.
- Follow the Rules: Employers must abide by hiring rules and regulations stating that the information used to rule out a candidate are not discriminatory and are a valid predictor for their performance on the job. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, in particular, protects against discrimination; employers must guard against any action that will make it appear as though they are discriminating an applicant based upon race, color, creed, age, nationality, health issues, marital status, etc.
- Start a Screening Process Policy: The best protection against litigation is to establish a screening process policy for hiring that is used across the boards with each applicant. Using consistent screening process procedures and policies, documenting all steps taken can help to ensure both fairness and protection.
- Use Professional Employment Screening: A professional employment screening service can check an applicant’s history and determine if they have a history of violence or criminal activity.
Job seekers must be more vigilant than ever regarding what they post on their social media accounts. Employers using online resources for employment screening should strive to do so fairly, consistently and effectively.
