Partnership with Social Intelligence gives TazWorks clients the ability to offer social media screening to their customers seamlessly in the TazWorks platform

MeridianLink, Inc.® (NYSE: MLNK) today announced TazWorks™, its leading technology platform for independent background screening professionals, has partnered with Social Intelligence to offer new social media background screening capabilities to its clients and their customers.

“We are thrilled to announce a new partnership with Social Intelligence,” said Wesley Zauner, vice president of product for MeridianLink. “This new collaboration will give TazWorks clients the ability to offer social media screening to their customers seamlessly in the TazWorks platform.”

Using web and social analytics to discover actionable employment insights, social media screening can help organizations benefit from up-to-date data for employment decision-making. Further, offering a comprehensive integrated solution for a much-needed search type provides new benefits for TazWorks clients, giving them an added search type to include in their background screening product offerings.

By implementing a process that combines proprietary technology and FCRA certified analysts, TazWorks and Social Intelligence provide clients with comprehensive data while protecting personal privacy. In addition, Social Intelligence offers the SI Protected Class Safety Feature™. This unique and important feature removes all protected class information before clients receive their reports so their candidates and employees can rest assured that their personal life and protected information is not used against them in an employment decision.

“Social media screening is a key focus of product expansion for screening professionals globally and we are honored to be the first social media screening partner on the robust TazWorks platform,” said Bianca Lager, President of Social Intelligence. “Adding a product that covers online risk is a perfect example of the forward-thinking initiatives the teams at both Social Intel and MeridianLink take on to provide automation and efficiency for our shared partners.”
