The process was also time consuming: phone tag spanned 3 to 10 days, many times delaying the college’s offer to its top finalist. The inefficiencies were frustrating for the college and their candidates. Sharon Ewles (who recently retired) and her staffing coordinator took on the challenge of making improvements.
How We Helped
Our Candidate Comparison report makes it easy for managers to see the strengths and weaknesses of all candidates, and develop a list of finalists. And they can probe areas of concern identified in the reference feedback during interviews.
Sharon added, “We are always striving to recruit the best and most qualified candidates. One of the most significant ways we’ve advanced our process is with SkillSurvey Reference.”
Mott decided not to consider two people for a position in public safety after a Pre-Hire 360 report noted that their references shared the same IP addresses as the candidates, without a reasonable explanation.
“The comments we receive from references are invaluable. We are getting honest feedback, and using it as a tool to evaluate candidates, interview better and make informed decisions.”Sharon Ewles
