It’s often said that the best predictor of future performance is past performance. In particular, most employers find this to be true when hiring. Because of this, checking references for potential hires is a practice that has existed for decades. Getting feedback from others who have supervised or worked alongside a potential hire can be invaluable. At the same time, there are challenges inherent with the traditional reference checking approach:
- Difficulty in reaching references
- Unwillingness of many references to offer meaningful feedback for fear of legal liability
- If the reference questions aren’t structured correctly, information gathered may often be too subjective
- Inefficiency of gathering, recording and documenting feedback from references
- Delays with this process can create roadblocks to finalizing hiring decisions
