Automated Reference Checking helps hiring managers avoid bad decisions while improving process efficiencies. Ensuring candidates are screened is necessary for compliance purposes, and more importantly, for the safety of patients and residents. However, checking references by phone is time-consuming, inconsistent, and offers little insight into the quality-of-hire. HealthcareSource offers a candidate-driven, automated reference screening tool that leverages behavioral science. 

References receive a personalized email and link from your candidate, directing them to a welcome page for the survey.
Save Time & Increase Completion Rates 

Make the process of contacting candidates and collecting references easier with Automated Reference Checking. Candidates invite their references to complete an anonymous, online survey with the ability to generate automatic reminders to keep the process moving. You’ll see higher completion rates because the reference receives a personal request from the candidate rather than an unsolicited call from a recruiter or hiring manager they do not know.

Sample question that a reference provider answers about your candidate.
Capture Meaningful, Candid Feedback 

References respond to questions about your candidate from their desktop or mobile device. Allowing reference providers to respond to the online survey at a time of their choosing provides meaningful responses beyond checking the box and elicits candid feedback.
