TABB INC.’s new subsidiary, careerandtalenthub, provides Human Resources with the ability to leverage technology that will improve the recruiting process and enable you to highlight the most qualified candidates. Employers are facing issues with cost per hire and time to hire metrics. Background checks delay start dates, and are becoming increasingly more expensive. Candidate frustration leads to persistent issues of abandoning online applications.
Is there an alternative process that can benefit candidates and employers? careerandtalenthub’s E-Reference Check platform offers solutions for employers that are looking for new alternatives, and candidates seeking a proactive approach to the application process. Imagine viewing a resume or application that includes a link that with one click will confirm the candidate’s experience?
The E-Reference Check process works with candidates to engage references and obtain recommendations that highlight experience, unique skills, and abilities. E-Reference Checks can be utilized by Human Resources to reach out to candidate references and obtain recommendations to narrow the field of finalists for a position, or by candidates to proactively confirm experiences and abilities on their resume for review by recruiters and hiring managers.
E-Reference Checks for Candidates
Everyone is aware of the potential for resume misrepresentation and the time that is wasted when this occurs; it affects employers and legitimate job seekers. “Our software platform works with candidates to engage references and obtain recommendations that highlight unique skills, experience, and abilities,” according to Barb J. Wyskowski, Esq., the CEO and founder of careerandtalenthub.
Candidates can generate a PDF form-filler with occupation-based performance questions to current and former supervisors, coworkers, teachers, instructors, professors, volunteer and internship coordinators and others, such as civic organizations. The E-Reference Check can even verify prior employment through Human Resources and confirm education. Candidates and references can complete the process on their phone in just a few minutes.
Responses from references populate a mobile E-Reference Check report that will highlight experience, work performance, and abilities.
Each E-Reference Check report contains a unique digital link that candidates can include in resumes, Applicant Tracking Systems, job boards, and when emailing or meeting recruiters and hiring managers. Experience and suitability for a position will be confirmed with the click of a mouse. The E-Reference Check can be posted on social media, LinkedIn, or printed to disseminate at job fairs to stand out from the crowd of applicants applying for the same position.
E-Reference Checks for Human Resources
Our software platform works with candidates to engage references and obtain recommendations that highlight unique skills, experience, and abilities
careerandtalenthub will improve HR metrics at no cost for companies and organizations that utilize our background screening services. The same old screening process has been around since the invention of the phone. Now recruiters and recruiting assistants can utilize the E-Reference Check process in the initial stages. Experience and suitability of the finalists for the position can be confirmed before time-consuming recruiter and hiring manager interviews, and before incurring the expense of a full background investigation that includes criminal record research fees.
How does the E-Reference Check work with HR? Recruiters have two options from which to choose. Both options will generate unique occupation-based questionnaires to the candidate’s references.
Recruiters choose an occupational category relating to the candidate’s particular experience to be confirmed, and careerandtalenthub will generate a unique occupation-based PDF form-filler questionnaire directly to the candidate’s references via email, and obtain a performance evaluation without any interaction by the candidate.
Recruiters generate an E-Reference Check email to the candidate that will include an introduction and instructions to engage supervisors, coworkers, and peers. Our software platform will direct the candidate to enter information regarding their occupation, employment, and pertinent information about their references. A unique occupation-based PDF form-filler questionnaire will be directed to the candidate’s references via email.
Both options will populate responses from references into an easy-to-read E-Reference Check report that confirms the candidate’s experiences on their resume and application. Recruiters monitor results and view candidate evaluations through an account dashboard. Results are typically available in less than forty-eight hours.
Candidates and employers face challenging hurdles during the hiring process. Can a new strategy solve the issues at hand for both parties? “We strongly believe that the E-Reference Check process for candidates and for employers will benefit all concerned. Our technology opens the door to new possibilities for Human Resources,” concludes Barb.
