Although reference checking is a step of the hiring process that requires a lot of attention and time, it is also a necessary step for hiring quality employees. With VidCruiter’s automated reference checking system you no longer need to limit the number of reference checks you conduct to only qualified candidates.
Aiming to save you time and money, our automated reference checking enables the applicant to do all the work. They must contact their reference and get them to complete a private online report. After they’re done the report, you are notified and can review them whenever is a convenient time for you.
Another important part of the reference checking is the questions asked to get a good overview of the applicant. With Vid Referencing, you can establish the questions you would like to be answered beforehand. We also allow different formats to be used for responses such as written, audio, or video answers. These formats eliminate inconsistencies that can occur during a phone conversation.
Allowing referees to answer your questions at their conveniences raises the number of completed references. Furthermore, submitting references in the form of an online report has been proven to make referees more accountable resulting in more insightful and honest responses.
An automated reference checking system can lead to many benefits for your organization, but it also involves collecting large amounts of personal information. Depending on where you want to host the data, you may have to follow the data hosting rules for that region. In Australia, there is the federal privacy act that controls the way personal information can be used.
Your company may need to follow regulations such as these, and if you require an Australian-based automated reference checking system hosted in Australia, VidCruiter has taken all the necessary procedure to do this. We are regulated and allowed to host all of your data within Australia.
VidCruiter can also host your data outside of Australia. We also have Canada-hosted automated reference checking, US-hosted automated reference checking, UK-hosted automated reference checking, and a Europe-hosted automated reference checking as well.
