Pre-Employment Screening & Security

Adding Online Social Profiling to your Portfolio of Services

Modern day employee screening and security checks requires modern day solutions. Providing Online Social Profile checks such as the ONSRA and HOBRA as a part of your service offering to clients will make pre-employment screening more current, relevant and accurate. Online Social Profiling reports are providing a ‘new breed’ of intelligence to support decision making for you and your clients.

Compliant Online Social Profiling

SP-Index checks are dramatically de-risking businesses which have a high focus towards safety and security of staff and the general public (such as Airports and Airlines) as well as reducing levels of abuse in the Health and Social Care industry by highlighting those individuals that present a risk before being placed in security or safeguarding roles. Our reports are industry specific and tailored help to identify and eradicate the 'threat from within' any organisation.

Our online screening process is powered by recently developed specialised technology and complies with all legislation including Data Protection, Aviation and Maritime Security Acts and Anti-terrorism Acts. Reports are prepared in accordance with guidlelines of organisations such as the CIPD and the CQC. For ultimate protection our reports will identify those with online behaviours leaning towards violent and threatening behaviour, racism, discrimination, bullying and harassment.

Although it is legal to read about a person on social media sites, it divulges protected characteristics about them which could put you at risk of discriminating against them. SP-Index reports provide you with all the information you need to support well-informed decisions about your potential risks, without breaching legislation or regulations.


Strengthen the pre-employment screening and vetting processes for your clients

If you currently carry out enhanced security checks, credit checks and or DBS checks on behalf of clients then you should consider modernising your pre-employment checks to include Online Social Profile checks. Reports are prepared using SP Index market benchmarks and SP Index analytics in order to highlight unusual online behaviours which are assessed for safety and security risk.

Our reports will identify inconsistencies within an individual's online profile by screening hundreds of websites and millions of web pages, bringing the information together into a consolidated and easy to read report.

These are some of the elements included in each social profiling report – they also indicate each employee’s online cognitive behaviours, which are often subsequently reflected 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.
  • Enhanced Network Risk Assessment: A measure that considers both network density of an individual as well as specific connections to other individuals and groups.
  • Visibility Landscape: The variety of areas in which an individual is apparent online.

SP-Index checks can be adjusted depending on the role and the organisation’s culture and function. We are confident that enhancing your service in this way will increase safety and security as well as provide an additional and significant financial return on investment.
