Using Social Media To Evaluate Job Candidates

Using Social Media To Evaluate Job Candidates

Lots of valuable information can be learned by employers who use social media to evaluate various job candidates. However, there are always risks involved to this method.

The hiring process as of late has been a struggle. But finally, your recruiting director is making headway and is down to three well-qualified candidates for the position your company has been looking to fill for months. But in these final decisions comes the question of which candidate is truly the best for the job and company overall. Social media resources are so readily inviting and available to the public that even business professionals think of pursuing these avenues for a little more insight to the answers they seek.

The question becomes, should you consider social media when evaluating job candidates? Is it okay to look at an applicant’s social media profile as a peep into their personal lives as to what they may bring to the company?

In response to a recent Harris Poll, 60 percent of hiring managers say employers should screen all applicants’ social media profiles, and 69 percent say looking at the social media profiles of job candidates is effective.

How to Ensure that Your Business Has an Inclusive and Supportive Environment

It’s 2023, and DEI issues have been on the forefront for several years now. You would think organizations would have successfully implemented an inclusive and equitable environment for all employees, right?

Yet, in many sectors in the workplace, there is still staggering inequality. In fact, racism has increased in technology from 18% of people of color reporting discrimination in 2021 to 24% in 2022.

Among those who face discrimination are those with a disability or mental health condition, who are not given the same support and opportunities as their coworkers.

In the past years, many companies have created policies or taken measures they thought would address DEI issues. Yet, many of these were not enforced, not implemented properly, or not tested to see if they were actually benefiting those facing discrimination.

Now, companies need to take steps to improve implementation and create an equitable environment for all.

Growing Small Businesses Need Professional HR Support

A company’s sign of success is when they start adding more employees to fulfill all aspects of the workload.

Creating a Better Company Culture

Creating a Better Company Culture

Company culture is everything these days when it comes to an organization’s best practices and environment. The culture of an organization is defined by its vision, values, workplace beliefs, attitude, purpose, and behaviors of the work staff. And a company’s culture ultimately plays a huge role in the success of the business.

 

Flex HR’s very own CEO, Jenny Morehead, recently chatted with The Next Scoop to discuss Creating a Better Company Culture and how a business can set up best practices to design a healthier overall company culture.

 

Jenny notes that it’s important for “people to experience joy in their work. Otherwise, what is it all for? I think enough companies have caught on to the fact that employees can find nice places to work now with good work-life balance and with people who care, and if you are not one of those companies, you’re falling behind.”

Using AI Wisely in HR and the Workplace

Using AI Wisely in HR and the Workplace

In the past decade, the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) has continued to expand into every area of the workplace, including HR.

The use of AI in Human Resources potentially saves time and money, and reduces the monotony of repetitive tasks. It can help prioritize good candidates when recruiting, for example, reducing the time spent going through hundreds of applications. It can help with payroll, aspects of training, and a host of other HR-related tasks.

In this digital age, a word of caution is needed. While AI is becoming more prominent for various job aspects, human knowledge and interaction is still necessary for others, which should never be replaced.

Using AI has helped HR to save time and focus on the issues that need a more human touch, but organizations need to continue to prioritize using human employees. Technology needs to be seen as an aid to achieve more work/life balance for employees, not a replacement for them. It’s important to create a written policy to determine when AI can be used in the workplace.
