What is social media screening?
Social media screening is a screening solution that utilizes a candidate’s digital footprint to provide a wealth of information regarding their character—information companies can use to hire better employees. We help companies leverage bias-free public content in their employment decisions without the hassle of scouring the web themselves.

The KRESS Social Media Screening service uncovers problematic online behavior and can complement your current background screening programs to identify quality candidates for a safer and more productive workplace.
