Online Social Profiling for Legal and Financial Roles

Online social profiling during recruitment and employee checks to monitor online behaviour is becoming indispensable where staff process confidential information or are seen as ‘trusted hands’ by the client.

Our online profiling enables you to comply with both legislation and customer sentiment. In service industries on which customers depend and where word-of-mouth is pivotal, brand protection is paramount to commercial success. In these working environments, we often recommend training in profile management, even though many online activities do not relate to work.

Demonstrate that you are forward thinking and adaptable

Accrediting your organisation’s integrity with SP-Index certification will demonstrate your awareness of the impact of each employee’s social profile visibility landscape throughout recruitment and employment.

You will find each of these elements included in each profile report – they indicate each employee’s online cognitive behaviours, which are likely to show in the workplace:

  • Employer Risk Rating: A traffic-light system which can indicate training requirements.
  • Privacy Rating: A measure of information that an individual makes freely available to everyone online.
  • Content Rating: A measure of commercially unfavourable content.
  • Professional/Social Weighting: Weighting of professional and social posts made.
  • Visibility Landscape: The variety of areas in which an individual is apparent online.

During recruitment, online social profiling criteria can be adjusted according to role, your organisation’s culture and industry niche. Post-recruitment, our monitoring service provide you, your wider team and your customers with confidence in your systems and ethics.
