Wide Array of Organizations Increasingly Seek to Shorten Time to Fill and Improve Quality of Hire in 2016; SkillSurvey's reference check volume reaches 100,000 job candidates a month

Today, SkillSurvey, the leading provider of hiring solutions to effectively recruit, hire and manage employees to drive business results, announced that it is experiencing fast growth this year among a number of industries that are embracing online reference checking to shorten time to fill and improve quality of hire – including customer expansions and new business in healthcare/ long-term care, the staffing industry, higher education, retail, and banking/finance. This growth is boosting online reference checking volume for its Pre-Hire 360® to reach 100,000 job candidates a month.

“We’re excited to continue to expand our business with existing customers and with so many new organizations across a diverse range of industries to help make recruiting more efficient and enable teams to make smarter hiring decisions faster,” said Ray Bixler, President and CEO of SkillSurvey. “Hiring demand is up and recruiting is extremely competitive, but at the same time, the stakes are high for organizations to find trusted employees who can provide excellent care, inspire their students or serve their customers.”

During the first half of the year, SkillSurvey signed a number of staffing and recruiting organizations with bookings up by 69%, added many new institutions to its higher education roster to increase business by 97%, increased bookings in retail by 70%, and banking/finance by 50%. Other notable industries showing high growth in bookings were business services (67%), government organizations (94%) and non-profits (112%).

In addition, SkillSurvey has continued to build on its strong base in healthcare, with long-term care organizations and non-hospital healthcare-related organizations up 204% in bookings. SkillSurvey’s Credential OnDemandTM, launched earlier this year, also expanded its customer base and is now providing several thousand digital peer reference responses a month for physician candidates.

The company has recently launched a 30-day Free Trial program to demonstrate how it has streamlined and transformed what is typically considered a time consuming and labor intensive reference checking process. Organizations can experience a scalable, online, automated process that delivers detailed job-specific feedback from references on critical soft skills. Organizations can sign-up at
