A detailed reference check is a critical step in the hiring process, and one that many recruiters dislike doing.

A good detailed reference check can aid in managing a new hire successfully, especially if the questions asked are framed around performance. Our specifically designed reference checks cover aspects of performance and behaviour critical to employers!

It’s a wise investment to Check it out before signing the offer.

So what do you get?

Three detailed written reference check reports covering a standard range of questions plus additional areas that you want to cover.

The interviews of referees take time and the reports depict accurately the responses to the questions asked and supplementary questions that develop. Having independence in reference checking means that someone who has no vested interest in the process is conducting what is effectively a quality control check on all of the interviews and assessments, therefore adding to the pool of information. All information gathered is confidential to the Sourcerer and the client.

Remember the best predictor of future performance is past performance!

How much does it cost?

The full fee is invoiced when the request is received from you, and is payable 7 days from delivery of the completed reference checks. Reference checks are completed quickly but can be delayed with lack of availability of nominated persons.

The results of reference checks shouldn’t be the factor that makes you decide to hire or not. You should be past that point when you take references. A good detailed reference check can aid in managing a new hire successfully; we are not saying that with consistently bad reference checks, you should continue to hire, remember the only real predictor of future performance is past performance!

We have had an occasion where there were, on the surface, three good reference checks. When asked would you hire again, the answer from all three was NO.
Big red flag!!! And when asked why not, and pushing for an answer, each person said that the candidate stole from the company. Yet they were still giving average to good references. Why? Because the candidate negotiated that he gets a good reference for going quietly. So at least two companies hired him not knowing his past behaviour, and they suffered as a result, yet continued to give reference checks, perpetuating the problem. Who was at fault?; The provider of the reference, and the person taking the reference for not asking the right questions and digging deep enough.
