Neotas conducted online reputation screening on a candidate being onboarded to a senior role.
Background: Our client, a company seeking to fill a senior position, recently conducted a comprehensive onboarding process for a senior candidate. As part of their standard procedure, they performed traditional background searches. However, this conventional approach did not uncover crucial information about the candidate.
Challenge: During the onboarding process, our client encountered an unexpected obstacle when explicit content associated with the senior candidate was discovered online. This discovery raised concerns about the candidate’s suitability for the position and the potential impact on the company’s reputation.
Approach: Realizing the limitations of the conventional background searches, our client decided to explore online screening methods to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the candidate’s background. By employing advanced online screening techniques, they aimed to obtain a more accurate assessment of the candidate’s suitability for the role.
Solution: To address the challenge, our client leveraged online screening tools to perform a thorough examination of the candidate’s online presence. This involved searching through various social media platforms, professional networking sites, and online forums, using both automated tools and manual investigation techniques. The objective was to identify any explicit content or questionable behavior that could potentially impact the candidate’s ability to fulfill the responsibilities of the senior position.
Results: The online screening process revealed the presence of explicit content associated with the senior candidate.
Impact: By incorporating online screening into their onboarding process, our client was able to gather valuable insights about the candidate that traditional background searches had missed. The discovery of the explicit content prompted the client to reassess their decision to hire the candidate for the senior position. It highlighted the importance of thoroughly evaluating candidates’ online presence to make informed hiring decisions and protect the company’s reputation.
Conclusion: This case study demonstrates the significance of integrating online screening methods, in addition to traditional background checks, when evaluating candidates for senior positions. The online screening process enabled our client to uncover explicit content associated with the candidate, which raised concerns about their suitability for the role.
