Customer success stories
“In addition to getting data to make better hiring decisions, Brinker International has found a new lead source with 30% of references opting in, and typically 2 of these passive candidates are hired per month.
“We’re putting this data together to create a view of what a successful candidate may look like. It’s really going to help us understand a lot… It’s a bar we’re pushing higher and higher.”
Mike Manzo, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition, Brinker International
“The references that opt into our talent pool are typically some of our stronger candidates. They are the people at the executive level or higher, and they are showing an interest in Clemson.”
Josh Brown, Director of Talent Acquisition, Clemson University
St. Joseph’s Health transformed talent acquisition across its organization by uniting its recruiters into one team and streamline key processes with our automated solution. All recruiters are now working through this new lead source and determining the best way to take advantage for their hiring area.
“Having all these physicians who have had introductory exposure to our organization through the reference process and/or their colleague’s interest is great for me. I reach out to them to assess their interest in a potential move – and to ask if they have contacts who might be interested. So it’s a pool of immediate contacts connected to a larger pool of potential contacts.”
John Cerniglia, Physician Recruiter, St. Joseph’s Health
Hire smarter with more insightful reference checking
SkillSurvey Source® works hand in hand with SkillSurvey Reference®, the cloud-based, mobile solution that connects you to more references and gives you meaningful, predictive insights on a candidate’s past performance.
What makes SkillSurvey Source different from other online passive candidate sources?
Because a candidate’s references and referrals typically come from the same industry or job area of your candidates, this gives hiring managers a new source of targeted talent. With a growing list of high-quality candidate leads, you can spend more time working on those hard-to-fill positions and less time posting to various job boards or sifting through resumes.
How up to date is the passive candidate information?
It is the most up to date information available. When references and referrals receive a request to participate in either SkillSurvey Reference or SkillSurvey Source they are asked to personally confirm their role and contact information.
Can recruiters engage with passive candidates?
Recruiters can stay connected by sending out communications and alerts about new positions to passive candidates who have opted in.
