The Evolution of Reference-Checking into a Strategic Hiring Solution

Topic:
The Evolution of Reference-Checking into a Strategic Hiring Solution
Date:
June 20, 2012 at 3:00 - 4:00 PM ET
webcastImgStandalone
 
  
Description
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. This session will examine why reference-checking has not been effective traditionally, and then will shine fresh light onto its 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 5 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.

Who should attend? Recruiters, HR executives, talent-acquisition professionals, and HRIS and shared services specialists.
