More insight, more accurate (Tired of “canned” references)
Asking a candidate for 2 references is a good idea, but it’s often not enough. Now you can ask for as many references as you want and still do less work. The more references you have respond, the more you know about your potential candidate.
Check references at any time
Our system allows the option to ask for references at any point in the hiring process. Ask for them upfront, part way through or at the very end. The option is always yours.
Applicants do the work
With VidReferencing applicants are the ones who call the references on your behalf. Once they call their referee, they simply get them to complete your private online report. Applicants do not see what is reported.
Reference in any format
You can ask for references in any format, written, audio or video. Most people choose text but we have all the options.
Customize, then standardize the process
Having different team members call references at different times can result in having inconsistent results. With VidReferencing you create the questions you want to ask and you can send the same question to as many or as few candidates as you like. The uniformity in questions allows you to better evaluate your prospects.
Enjoy a better response rate
Everyone is busy these days. Getting referees on the phone to chat about your new candidate can be a difficult thing to do. With VidReferencing applicants are the ones calling references for you to ensure this step is getting done. On top of that, our system enables the referees to answer your questions when they have the time. This results in zero callbacks and right-the-first-time references.
As many reference checks as you need (same as first)
Generally you will only ask for references from your finalists. But what happens if you get bad references? Your finalists’ list just got smaller and you could end up not having the right person for the job at all. With VidReferencing, you can do reference checks for as many candidates as you wish, giving you more insight on more candidates.
References are more honest
Sometimes references will not give a totally honest answers when you are talking to them on the phone. This can be bad news for your company if you hire someone based on the references they received. With VidReferencing references have proven to be more honest and candid with their responses because they can give it more thought and also they feel more removed from the process when they are not talking to you in person. When you write something on paper you are a lot more accountable than in a small discussion. Referee validation aka “almost lie proof “
Review references on your own schedule
Coordinating your schedule around when references have time to speak is challenging and unnecessary. With VidReferencing, you can review the references’ responses to your questions on your own time. Allowing you to coordinate your schedule based on you.
Documented proof of the proper process
Checking references can be an important part of the process. VidReferences allows you to track and ensure this step has been completed.
Our system will allow you to get a score based on how everyone rates your applicants giving you even more insight into who is the right match.
