Get Real, Honest References for Candidates
360 Referencing™ is a competency-based assessment that helps a hiring manager validate the information accumulated through the recruiting process.
The statistical summary snapshot highlights gaps between the references, as well as gaps between the self-assessment of the candidate and the statistical averages of the references. This immediately flags areas of potential concern and generates key questions for any follow-up strategies.
It integrates with structured interview questions and provides a focus for a hiring plan to prepare an individual for both initial onboarding and career progression.
The online process and the database reporting feature ensure compliance with best practice recruiting and onboarding systems developed by HR professionals. Furthermore, the completion rate and variability in the responses of the references are significantly higher than in-person or phone reference checks.
