Benefits of Automated Reference checks

1. Save Time and Money with Automation

Traditional reference checks often require an average of one hour from a recruiter due to follow-ups, data entry, and other communications. This could equate to an expenditure of $30 to $50 for the average HR manager or recruiter.

2. Better Insights

Automated checks with Ref Hub allow for role-specific reference questions, granting deeper and more relevant insights. Furthermore, our platform can tailor questions based on candidate details such as their previous position and duration of employment.

3. Convenience for the Referee & Unbiased Results

Our research indicates that referees prefer online reference check surveys. They appreciate the flexibility to provide detailed and honest feedback at their convenience. In contrast, phone reference checks might exert pressure, leading to rushed answers or potential biases in feedback.

4. Improved Response Rates

Ref Hub's automated reminders, delivered via both SMS and email, boost the chances of referees completing the survey promptly.

5. Enhanced Experience for Both Candidates and Referees

Ref Hub’s digital and intuitive process diminishes the effort needed from candidates and referees. Our platform's user-centric design ensures that everyone involved encounters a smooth, hassle-free experience.

6. Scalability: No matter the volume

Be it ten or a thousand candidates—Ref Hub's automated system scales seamlessly, guaranteeing a uniform procedure.
