The Evolution of Reference Checking into a Strategic Hiring Solution

The Evolution of Reference Checking into a Strategic Hiring Solution
SHRM research shows that 96 percent of human resources professionals check references, yet less than 25 percent of those checks are able to produce adequate information beyond employment verification. What happened to reference checking?

This session will examine how the reference checking function has evolved from being a formality that was checked off and completed over the phone in the past to an opportunity to collect 360-degree feedback that predicts performance and retention today.

Learn how technology has introduced a way for talent acquisition professionals to capture behavioral feedback from five references in two days for each job candidate, and how to avoid the 10-15 percent of candidates who score low with references. Also, watch a demonstration and overview of how this technology infuses consistency, reliability and validity into each reference check and obtains scores that identify candidates’ developmental needs.
