A Technology Driven Approach to Mitigate Employment Risk
A dramatic rise in social media use among billions of hyper-connected people alongside a shift from a traditional enterprise hierarchy to an ecosystem of distributed workers and partners presents new and unique challenges to organizations. This perfect storm increases risk to brand reputation, threatens workplace culture, and increases costs associated with insider threats and employee attrition. Organizations can no longer turn a blind eye to their employees' online personas, as their brand, profits and employee safety are at stake.

Understand the risks and identify the bad apples early
The business world is shifting from a traditional enterprise hierarchy to an ecosystem of distributed workers and connected customers and partners. Companies are having to rethink how to properly manage employee oversight and subsequent risk. They are coming to the realization that what their employees say online has an outsized impact on their brand reputation and contributes to employee attrition. As a result, organizations must consider candidate character as an integral part of their vetting process for all new hires. The adage, "It only takes one bad apple," has never been truer.
Align employee character to corporate values
At Ferretly, we believe those individuals asking to represent your company should be held to a certain standard – one that reflects your corporate values. We set out to make it easy for those hiring and contract decision-makers to assess candidates based on these values by providing insight into their online behavior. By surfacing poor character traits that could represent a risk to the organization, Ferretly fills in the missing pieces from the incomplete picture provided by the traditional background check.
Ensure a fair, unbiased, legal, and consistent approach
We believe in free speech, but not freedom from consequences. We also believe that candidates have a right to not be subjected to implicit biases and inaccuracies that often result from companies taking a do-it-yourself approach to online assessments. Ferretly allows companies to ensure an accurate, fair, consistent, and unbiased approach while protecting the rights of candidates to dispute the accuracy including through legal means such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).
