“Other companies only send an email for reference checks. Those emails may not be answered, wasting valuable time and resources. Proficiency Background Service calls the C-Suite and Director level personnel at your candidate’s previous employment personally and conducts in-depth interviews to vet your potential C-Suite candidates. This avoids hiring the wrong candidate and wasting your organizations time.” -Adrian Thacker, CEO Proficiency Background Service
What should every responsible employer know about each individual before giving them access to proprietary information, the keys to the workplace, and interaction with customers and employees?
In today’s environment, it is critical that employers perform their fullest due diligence in order to mitigate the risk of workplace violence and losses due to poor performance or poor cultural match. This information can only obtained from former employers and other key references, as it does not appear in public records through thorough reference checks. As the employer’s representative, RefCheck’s professional-level staff engages the references in conversations that allows for meaningful exchanges and critical follow-up questions. The resulting report allows the employer to not hire blind and provides excellent documentation in the event of negligent-hiring allegations. What could you or should you know about an individual before you allow them into your organization?
Management/Professional In-depth Reference Interviews – These interviews provide a comprehensive narrative report reflecting the in-depth nature of each reference call. This product is offered for First-level Supervisors and Managers, such as office and store managers, shift supervisors, crew leaders, and forepersons responsible for the day-to-day management of line employees; Middle Managers responsible for carrying out the goals set by senior management and for providing feedback and offering suggestions; and Senior-level managers and Professional-level individual contributors at privately held companies. Fees are per interview, based on anticipated starting salary.
Executive Profiles – For C-level hires and Board appointments for large privately held and publicly traded companies, this is a deep and broad review of candidates under consideration. Individuals in these roles set goals for the organization, direct others to achieve them, and are ultimately responsible for the performance of the organization. Department managers, regional or division managers, plant managers, GMs and others at similar levels report to them. Up to four references and all necessary background checks are included. Fee is based on the role/scope of responsibility, irrespective of salary. This is a critical tool in employer and Board due diligence.
ShortRef®s – Available only for non-exempt positions such as line employees, entry-level administrative, technical, and production positions. Q&A format for interview and report.
