SkillSurvey Webinar: How Automated Online Reference-Checking Changes Hiring

Wayne, Penn. — June 6, 2013 — SkillSurvey(R), Inc., the inventor of Web 2.0 reference assessment solutions, will share the latest insights on how to derive maximum benefit from reference-checking in its June 20 webinar, “How Automated Online Reference-Checking Is Changing the Hiring Game,” from 2-3 p.m. EDT.

This webinar will examine how the reference-checking function has evolved from a hiring formality to an opportunity to collect 360-degree feedback that predicts performance and retention. Attendees will learn how to strategically apply automated online reference-checking to infuse consistency, reliability and validity into each reference-check, including:
– How to improve quality-of-hire by eliminating 10 to 15 percent of candidates who score low with references;
– How to capture behavioral feedback from five references in two days for each candidate;
– How to infuse compliance, consistency, reliability and validity into each reference-check;
– How to identify the developmental needs of each candidate; and
– How to provide information to hiring managers that influences decisions.

Jack Kramer, SkillSurvey’s vice president of field operations, will present the webinar. He is an expert at leveraging technology to drive behavioral reference-checking programs and modern-day talent acquisition strategies, and has helped human resources leaders at organizations of all sizes improve their quality-of-hire and increase their recruiting efficiency.

“Reference-checking technology empowers organizations to improve their hiring process and results by providing valuable information on candidates’ behaviors, past performance and developmental needs,” Kramer said.

This complimentary webinar has been approved for one (general) recertification credit hour toward PHR, SPHR and GPHR recertification through the HR Certification Institute.
