“We wanted an efficient solution to ensure we’re getting accurate feedback from references and previous employers of job candidates. SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360 is a huge time saver for our recruiters, and the time-management efficiencies alone have been huge,” said Shelly Hubble, Vice President, Frontline Source Group. “Our recruiters no longer have to worry about making calls, following up with those calls and then recording that information into the candidate’s file – it is all automatically stored in one place.”
Frontline Source Group, who recently received honors as Staffing Industry Analyst’s Best Staffing Firm to Work For in 2015, started a trial of Pre-Hire 360 in December 2014. Since that time, they have received reference feedback from over 1,000 references who have responded to job-specific surveys. Their most frequently used surveys include accountant, IT, customer service, human resources, sales, and administrative professionals. Other results they’ve seen include:
- An average of more than 3.21 references responding per candidate in 1.35 days
- Nearly three-quarters of references respond in 1 day or less
After completing a survey, references are also asked if they want to opt-in to Frontline Source Group’s passive candidate database. So far, over 280 references have opted-in, providing them with a new source of warm leads for future openings. Additionally, most of the references that opt-in are from the same industry and/or job family as the candidate.
Frontline Source Group has completely integrated Pre-Hire 360® into their hiring process and leverages the feedback provided by references during interviews.
“Aside from greater efficiencies, we are also more confident now that reference reviews are less-biased because of the confidentiality of the reference feedback. I think that because we’re respecting their privacy, they are providing more honest feedback on that candidate. Plus, it saves their time as well as they can complete the information on their own, anytime.” said Shelly Hubble.
“SkillSurvey continues to expand our solutions to meet the unique hiring needs of the staffing and recruiting industries to help them be more efficient while sourcing great candidates,” said Rob Bennett, Vice President of Channel Alliances at SkillSurvey. “We’re helping them deliver more to their clients through data-driven insight from references.”
