COVID-19 is Creating Background Screening Challenges. Social Media Screenings Added to Close Information Gaps!
We found this Forbes article discussing the current challenges of obtaining candidate’s information due to court closures during the coronavirus pandemic. The article highlights the perils and potential risks associated with relaxing and changing policies around to navigate current circumstances, but those changes might possibly create discriminatory practices going forward. The article also discusses alternate screening methods some employers are adopting, such as social media screening, to close gaps where traditional screening results are not currently available.
OPENonline has offered FCRA compliant social media background screening to our clients for quite a while because of the value and insight the information adds to standard screenings and bolsters informed hiring decisions.
We have had an influx of requests from our clients to add social media background screenings as employers try to traverse the current difficulties of filling positions, while still obtaining sufficient information to make hiring decisions about their candidates during this pandemic.
