Pre-employment testing and reference checking provide a contrast in employment selection. Companies have used scientifically validated assessment tools for decades. These tools have allowed for greater insight into a candidate’s fit to the job and the culture and have reliably proven substantial ROI. On the flip side, traditional phone based reference checking has proven to be old-fashioned, inefficient and yields little in terms of understanding a candidate’s job fit.
What if you could combine the best of assessment into reference checking? What if you could take the proven and valid behavioral science of pre-employment assessment and incorporate it into reference checking while simultaneously automating the process and making it far faster. You now can. By including the use of proven assessment-based logic and automating the process, reference checking can become a critical component of your decision making process.
Competency based, automated reference checking is one of the fastest growing categories in HR technology today. More and more companies of all sizes are embracing the time-savings and increase in candidate insight. They are experiencing far greater reference completion rates, 90%+ time savings in the reference checking process and reduced bad hires as a direct result.
This session will provide you with an overview of the use of behavioral science within the reference checking process. We will review specific case studies on how leading companies have deployed technologies similar to this and how they have benefitted. Lastly, we will cover some common legal and compliance concerns and how this new approach can allay these fears while increasing the overall effectiveness of the process.
