Wayne, PA (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
SkillSurvey, Inc., the leading provider of confidential, science-based reference assessments that help employers make better hiring decisions, today announced that it is consistently processing references on more than 50,000 candidates each month, reflecting its growing client base and the increasing importance of smart reference checking for human resources departments and hiring managers across the country. SkillSurvey has processed roughly 6 million references on over 1.2 million candidates to date.
“Our strong growth shows that companies are recognizing that smarter reference checking is the best way to ensure quality hires,” said Ray Bixler, CEO of SkillSurvey. “This is the latest in a series of key milestones for us this year, following the news that our Pre-Hire 360®solution received a U.S. patent this March. By bringing reference assessments online and moving the reference-checking process to the pre-interview stage, companies are avoiding problem hires, bringing in better talent and saving time and money in the process.”
Other key SkillSurvey developments in 2014 include:
- The new Workplace Health & Safety Competency Cluster within surveys targeted at the oil and gas industry, where failing to accurately measure a job candidate’s commitment to safe workplace practices could have disastrous results.
- Launching new clients on Credential360TM, a solution that helps SkillSurvey’s healthcare clients more effectively check the credentials of medical professionals and speed up the process of bringing new personnel on board.
- An expanding customer base that has now grown to over 1,400 organizations
- A continued commitment to industry-leading research. Members of SkillSurvey’s research team recently presented at the annual conference of the Society for Industrial and Organizational Psychology (SIOP) this past May, including the industry’s first “Big Data” analysis of open-ended comments provided by an applicant’s references and research on how competency ratings by references can help reduce applicant “faking” in pre-hire assessments.
“SkillSurvey is clearly on a roll, and we look forward to helping more companies across industries make better-informed and more successful hiring decisions, based on our scientifically-validated, behavior-based reference assessments,” said Ray Bixler.
