Details & Time Frame
Improving Candidate Quality with Reference-Checking
Research from SHRM shows that 96% of HR professionals conduct reference-checks, yet less than 25% of those checks are able to produce adequate information beyond employment verification. What happened to reference-checking?

This session will shine fresh light onto reference checking's modern-day evolution as an opportunity to collect 360-degree feedback that predicts performance and retention.

Improve your entire hiring strategy by obtaining information about a candidate’s behaviors and skills before the hire. Leverage the feedback from references to guide the hiring manager’s interviews and to plan on-boarding and development programs. Gain an understanding of the newest scientific research from industrial-organizational psychologists supporting the reliability, compliance and validity of online reference-checking, as presented at the 24th annual SIOP conference.

Also, see an overview of how this technology infuses consistency into each reference-check, obtains scores that identify developmental needs of candidates, and captures open comments from references about a candidate’s strengths and weaknesses.

Learn how to improve quality-of-hire by:

• Getting behavioral feedback from 4 or more references in less than 2 days for each candidate
• Comparing results for multiple candidates
• Avoiding the 10-15% of candidates who may become bad-hires

Learn how reference-checking allows HR executives, recruiters and hiring managers to document savings of thousands of dollars in salaries and hiring costs by avoiding candidates who are not a good fit. Users of the technology receive a report showing which candidates have desirable behaviors and skills for a particular opening. Obtain new strategies for best-practices that reposition the reference-check as a strategic element of the hiring process, not a just a check-off item during the hiring process.
