The last step in the recruiting process, and often the most onerous can be calling for the reference check. No question that there are quality issues with phone-based reference checking. The common perception is that by and large the only data you’ll get are inaccurately rosy reviews, but the reality is no one can better predict candidate’s performance than those who have worked with them before.
Automated solutions, however, take the guesswork and inconvenience out of reference checking to deliver a process that is both more effective and efficient. In a recent survey by Chequed.com, reference providers were asked if they prefer phone-based to automated reference checking.
The result? 77% prefer automated reference checking to 23% who prefer the traditional, phone-based, method.
