We’ve minimized the time and burden for employers and references providers, while maximizing their ability to provide insight regarding the prior performance of job applicants.

Wonderlic, the nation’s leading publisher of student admissions tests and pre-employment assessments, has announced the launch of the Wonderlic Automated Reference Check.

Traditional reference checks are time consuming for both the employer and the reference provider, and their conversational nature can make it difficult to really compare candidates on critical attributes. In addition, references are frequently unwilling to provide more than basic employment verification information, making it impossible to obtain meaningful insight on how a prospective employee will perform.

Now employers can obtain more insightful information in less time than ever before. With just a few mouse clicks, individuals providing references can rate up to 12 competencies, and the results are rolled into an easy-to-understand single score.

“We’re thrilled that we’ve been able to really rethink the experience and results of reference checks,” says Matt Knox, the Vice President of Technology Services for Wonderlic and the project lead for the product. “We’ve minimized the time and burden for employers and references providers, while maximizing their ability to provide insight regarding the prior performance of job applicants.”

The Wonderlic Automated Reference Check lets employers delve into each candidate’s past performance to gain insight on common workforce competencies such as how the applicant has previously adapted to sudden priority shifts, their communication style, how they handled angry customers and heavy workloads, as well as how quickly they learned new tasks.
