Reduce Hiring Risk

Whether a reference confirms your hopes about a possible employee, reveals a misrepresentation, or highlights poor performance in a previous position, a reference check is a critical step in the hiring process where you can learn important details about your applicant, such as:

  • Were they really a top performer?
  • Did they have great attendance?
  • Is their CV or job application truthful?
  • Are their work history and listed skills accurate?

Conducting thorough reference checks can be time-consuming for hiring managers, but if important questions aren’t asked, you may not get a true picture of your candidate.
