SkillSurvey, Inc., the leading provider of intelligent web-based reference checking solutions, today publicly announced the launch of a Free Trial program for their newly renamed EZreferences solution; formerly known as eReference.

SkillSurvey received VC funding in December of 2005 after accumulating an impressive client roster of industry leaders like AXA, Emerson, Quest Diagnostics, Citigroup, Monster.com, USI, Honeywell, Cardinal Health, PSEG and many others.

Solving a Critical Hiring Problem:

EZreferences a web-based reference checking solution enables recruiters to consistently and efficiently attain reliable and detailed professional reference information on job candidates without having to make any phone calls. A detailed candidate profile including ratings on 20+ job skills and competencies is usually available in less than 48 hours and contains information from 5 or more references.

Corporate recruiters and third party recruiters alike are recognizing the value in this easy-to-use software service. For example, Accolo, the 2005 RPO of the Year, recently expanded its relationship with SkillSurvey in order to provide the most comprehensive and efficient reference check solution available to its hiring clients. SkillSurvey eliminates the need for Accolo to spend hours on the telephone attempting to contact and document references yet delivers robust information. “Applying innovative solutions to the recruiting process is what enables Accolo to consistently deliver the quality and efficiency our clients expect of us,” said John Younger, President of Accolo, “We view the SkillSurvey reference checking solution as a best-in-class tool and we recommend it to all of our clients.”

Trial Programs:

To continue building client momentum, SkillSurvey created a “Try One Free” promotion that allows all interested recruiters and recruiting managers to try the actual product before purchase.

Following a Try One Free EZreference, a 30 day, unlimited use trial is available for only $59, the regular retail price of one candidate assessment.

Industry Impact:

SkillSurvey’s new trial offers are timely as the Human Capital Institute launched its new Seminar Series National Tour “Hire Faster, Better: New Technology solutions that Drive Better Recruiting” on June 28th in Boston. Allan Schweyer, HCI’s President and Executive Director and author of "Talent Management Systems," assembled a panel that included some of the world's top e-recruiting experts and strategists to discuss new technologies that can help the recruiting process as the economy heats up, labor markets tighten, and the competition for top talent becomes fierce.

Doug LaPasta, Founder and Chief Strategist at SkillSurvey anchored the HCI panel and addressed the attendees by quoting the recent study from Leadership IQ stating that 46% of new hires fail in the first 18 months on the job and that the cost of a bad hire is usually 2x the annual salary of that position. With these statistics in hand, he further emphasized the need for tools and services that target and verify quality talent in a repeatable and efficient manner.
