“Our clients value these social media reports and have told us these background checking instruments help determine if the candidate is both a good fit for that workplace and potential for liability issues," said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis.

Corra Group and Social Intelligence have announced plans to increase cooperation in their long-term partnership. Corra Group in the El Segundo, California based background screening company, and Social Intelligence is a leading provider of social media hiring reports.

“We are delighted to be strengthening our partnership with Social Intelligence,” said Corra Group Co-Founder, Gordon Basichis. “We began our engagement several years ago when we first started ordering from Social Intelligence their FCRA Compliance Social Media Reports. Since then we have furnished hundreds of these reports to our clients, especially those in the finance sector as well as entertainment and advertising companies throughout the United States.

“Our clients have valued these social media reports and have told us these background checking instruments help determine if the candidate is both a good fit for that workplace environment, or if behavioral red flags indicate a potential for liability issues,” said Basichis. “Some of our advertising clients use them to better vet candidates for focus groups and commercial campaigns where the end advertiser may not find certain applicants in keeping with their branding standards.

“Through our social media reports, clients have discovered material that is racist and/or demonstrative of intolerance, sexually explicit, potentially unlawful, and potentially violent,” said Basichis. “This kind of a behavior is a no-go in the modern employment environment and fraught with potential liability issues.”

Basichis noted that as Corra Group expands its corporate research division, Corra Global Research, it will be making available to its Due Diligence and Investigative clients, the Social Intelligence Due Diligence Social Media Report. Basichis offered the Due Diligence Social Media Report is not as constrained by regulations and offers a more comprehensive overview of the subject by scraping everything that is out on the Internet.

"We value our partnership with Corra Group,” said Bianca Lager, Social Intelligence's General Manager. "We are looking forward to creating even more targeted social media reports so they become requisite for employment screening. Since our split from sister company Carpe Data, we are even more focused in providing accurate and compliant social media pre-employment screening reports.”
