New Hire Reference Checking

Why perform reference checks? These checks help you confirm the information on the candidate’s application form and resume. You will also gain greater insights into the candidate’s skills, knowledge, and abilities from someone who has observed the candidate perform.

It’s an essential part of the recruitment process that forms one of a few pre-employment checks employers or talent acquisition specialists may carry out before bringing a new employee onboard. Reference checks can vary per organization, role, or sector, but they’re not the same as a background check (we’ll get to that bit in a minute).

The purpose of the employee reference check is to collect 360 feedback on a prospective employee. This involves contacting a candidate’s former managers, direct reports, and peers — known as ‘referees’ — to find out more about their strengths, working styles, and areas for development. They might also include finding out more about a candidate’s personal attributes or character to understand how they’ll fit within the existing culture and team.
‍Depending on the role or sector, this process may also involve contacting personal connections, or customers.
New Hire Background Checking

​Comprehensive employment background checks have a wide range of benefits such as reducing workplace violence, increasing applicant quality, reducing the loss of employees due to dishonesty, hiring the right candidate, and avoiding company losses and negative publicity. Furthermore, pre-employment free background checks that are available online help companies reach long-term success. That, in turn, leads to a profit increase for for-profit organizations and greater reach for non-profit ones.
