Professional references help organizations gain an additional level of information on their applicant, beyond what is listed on their resume, that can provide them greater insight to a person’s work ethic and abilities.
HireRight offers a standard and premium level reference check service to help expedite the process HR professionals must complete when screening an applicant. Both include the contacting of colleagues and coworkers to gauge the applicant’s capabilities and authenticate work history.
The standard check uses a traditional set of questions and/or customers can develop a custom list. HireRight’s premium service includes a more comprehensive, performance-based reference check that provides a 360-degree view of a candidate.
The HireRight References Check adds to background screening, since former colleagues can often provide insight into a candidate’s work ethic and character, and can be used as another method of checking candidate integrity. During the reference check HireRight asks a series of standardized open-ended questions to the person provided as a reference by the candidate and then documents their responses.
