Social Media and Background Screening: If It’s on the Internet, Isn’t it Fair Game? – August 20 Webinar

Jul 17, 2020

Leveraging social media for sourcing, recruiting and employer branding is a hot topic for many companies, however, before jumping onto the internet, employers need to be aware of the potential dangers. What might seem like a strategic use of social media could be a fast track to litigation, governmental investigations and bad press.  This session will explore the legal aspects and best practices a company should consider when using social media to select and screen candidates.  Social media is here to stay and can be a powerful tool to help companies turn online data into actionable insight if done right.

This webinar – on Thursday, August 20, at 4pm ET/1pm PT – is open to all #WomenInTech, so please share this email with your friends and encourage them to become a part of the Alliance of Channel Women community.

Hope to see you at this important meeting.
