Berwyn, PA and MELBOURNE, Australia – May 14, 2019 – PageUp, a leading Talent Management Software-as-a-Service provider and SkillSurvey, the leading provider of cloud-based reference checking, career readiness and healthcare credentialing solutions today announced a new product partnership. PageUp has integrated with SkillSurvey Reference® to enable joint customers – including those in higher education, health care and in the staffing/RPO industry – to streamline and improve the recruitment process.
“When you make it easy for talent professionals to initiate an online reference check from the system they use daily to manage the hiring process, you can drive more consistent and thorough reference checking which leads to improved hiring decisions,” says Ray Bixler, CEO of SkillSurvey. “With our scientifically validated reference check, we’re ensuring that companies can get critical insights on candidates earlier in the hiring process, presented in easy-to-read reports that can be shared with interviewers or hiring decision-makers.”
Karen Cariss, CEO and Founder of PageUp says, “Conducting reference checks is an integral part of the recruitment process. We are thrilled to partner with industry leader SkillSurvey to help streamline and improve this process for talent acquisition professionals and candidates, delivering measurable results.”
SkillSurvey Reference is the only online reference checking solution that has been scientifically validated to reduce first-year turnover for cause. The solution helps talent acquisition teams uncover a candidate’s behavioral competence related to the job before offers are made. It also can speed the hiring process and save recruiters valuable time, by reaching 4-5 references who provide feedback in less than two days.
The new partnership will enable talent acquisition teams to streamline recruitment and improve candidate experience with a seamless path from candidate to new hire.
