What does this Check unveil?
Any “negative” mentions of a candidate in public and subscription media sources, including newspapers, magazines, periodicals, and web sources.
Why is this check important?
Adverse media checks reveal if an individual has been reported in the media in negative contexts - this can yield results not shown in criminal and civil convictions. Companies should be aware if an employee has a media footprint, as clients will often run independent searches of individuals - and this may reﬂect negatively on the employer.
When should you use it?
When hiring anyone in a senior, executive, client facing, PR or communications role.
