Amping up the strategic value of recruiting
Jennifer Talley, Global Director of Talent Acquisition, said “We’re always looking for the best talent in the uber-competitive tech space. No matter what country, the goal is always to find the right people.”
Talley sets an equally high benchmark for her team of global recruiters.
It’s also not surprising that traditional reference checks don’t shed much light on any of these highly-desired attributes. In the past, recruiters chased references over a period of three to five days, and reached two, maybe three, people if they were lucky. It was about a 90-minute investment of time that yielded little value.
“SkillSurvey Reference gives us the tool we need to be consultative with our hiring managers and help them make the best hiring decisions. I love that there is science behind the questions and the feedback. We provide managers good, solid insights into candidates, and we’re providing a huge value to the business.”
How We Helped
In addition to providing insightful feedback, SkillSurvey Reference streamlines the process. It takes just two minutes for a recruiter to kick off the process, and in less than two days, recruiters receive feedback from five or more references per candidate.
