Reference Check Services
Employment Reference Checking
Beyond verification services, reference checking provides additional insight to candidate's past performance.
Why are Reference Checks Important?
Hiring the right talent and building trusted teams is critical to your company’s success. But knowing that you’re hiring the right skill fit is only part of the equation. InCheck's reference check process helps you evaluate an applicant's past job performance based on information collected from supervisors, peers, or team members.
Reduce organizational risk
Ensure the skills described by the candidate match their work experience
Ensure a fair process
Having an external provider drives consistency and compliance with the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA)
Provides word-for-word commentary
Documents the feedback shared by a candidate's top referrals
Shields your reputation
Safeguard your company’s brand and bottom line by gaining an external perspective
What might a Reference Check Include?
We’ll use your existing reference format, or you can pick from one of our existing templates of questions. Reference templates can be customized based on position type. InCheck validates the identity of the person we’re talking to, and will supply a word-for-word reference response filled with the detail you are seeking.
Ask questions such as:
How long have you known the candidate?
- What is the nature or history of your relationship?
- How would you describe their strengths?
- How would you describe their weaknesses?
- Would you recommend them for a similar position? Why or why not?
