Share Article

Recruiters can manage the entire process for the candidate and configure their workflow and communications settings

SkillSurvey, the leading provider of cloud-based solutions that help staffing and talent organizations hire with faster, more reliable insights, today announced a new total reference checking solution exclusively for staffing and talent management firms to provide them with more options to manage their reference checking process.

“Staffing firms and other talent firms who are recruiting on behalf of their clients have time-sensitive screening requirements and are always managing their staffing brand,” said SkillSurvey President and CEO, Ray Bixler “We’ve listened and worked closely with our customers to provide even more customizable solutions to help them meet their internal and client-specific hiring needs.”

“SkillSurvey’s online referencing is easy to use and I no longer have to waste huge amounts of time calling a candidate’s former managers and hoping they will call me back. We just started using the text feature and we like it so far, as it prompts faster responses since candidates and references always have their cell phones with them and check their texts more frequently than email,” said Heather Buster, Professional Staffing Consultant, Express Employment Professionals. “The detail in the feedback is great, and I love that I can present a profile to a client with a detailed reference report and my clients are always very impressed. The experience is so positive, that we’ve gained new clients from references.”

Among the new options available for staffing and talent management firms include:

Managed process: With the fully managed process option in SkillSurvey ReferenceTM, recruiters can manage the reference checking process by adding references on behalf of a candidate.

Texting: SkillSurvey also recently launched new texting capabilities for SkillSurvey Reference, so firms can allow references and candidates to respond via email or text message for faster responses.

Flexible workflows: Leveraging the Pre-Hire 360® workflow within SkillSurvey Reference, recruiters can assess and evaluate candidates on the core competencies and behaviors that are key predictors of job success. With the customer configured workflow, companies can tailor how they reference check internally as well as for each of their clients. They can choose to leverage SkillSurvey's data and science or create their own custom questionnaires across job roles, workforce segments and levels of employees to provide a best fit solution that matches their specific reference checking needs.
