Identifying high performers: How Littelfuse uses SkillSurvey Reference® and its Pre-Hire 360® reference check to make informed hiring decisions
Getting feedback from references took a lot of time and delivered little value. The hiring challenge was magnified by the company’s global reach: Littelfuse has offices in more than 28 countries.
“It was rare that we found someone willing to tell us something about a candidate that actually made a difference. We couldn’t justify the time spent on reference checking because it yielded little more than standard employment information.”
– Human Resources Director for Global Talent and the Americas, Littelfuse
How We Helped
Most references readily respond because the process is easy, and the e-mailed invitation comes directly from the candidate. And the assurance of confidentiality makes them more candid. References are asked to give feedback on the candidate’s skills and behaviors that correlate with day-to-day success on a particular job opening.
Littelfuse relies on Pre-Hire 360 to process reference checks for its full range of positions in the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and the Philippines. Feedback from hiring managers is consistently positive.
“Candidates have had to broaden their reference base, and that produces more revealing information. There’s no doubt that we’re making better-quality decisions as a result.”
