Automated Reference Checking Saves Recruiter's Time

Reference checking is an essential part of the hiring process, but it’s the most onerous and many organizations leave it until the last phase of recruiting. If recruiters hear back from four in ten references, they are doing better than most organizations. The unfortunate reality, however, is that at least 60% of calls are wasted time.

Automated reference checking is a better solution. Consider the facts:

  • Automated reference checking tools eliminate labor intensive phone-based reference checks

    Recruiters no longer have to take the time to track down references and play phone tag with them. References also appreciate the opportunity to provide anonymous feedback, so the content of their input is more candid and useful.

  • Automated reference checking shifts the responsibility for soliciting references to candidates

    Not only does this save time for recruiters, it also gives them insight into how well candidates take ownership of tasks and handle accountability.

  • The path from data gathering to next steps with candidates is clear

    Automated reference checking solutions save time for recruiters by clearly identifying where candidates fit well and where they are off the mark. As a result, it takes less time to synthesize reference information and take the right action.
