Collecting References

In addition to individual assessment strategies, we also use a method of collecting references from former employers to provide comprehensive information about the candidate. After estimating the risk of subjectivity, we ask strategically formulated questions that allow us to gain more specific data on the candidate’s performance, his/her typical workplace behavior and competencies that should be developed/improved.

In most cases, former employers speak willingly and openly to recruitment professionals when asked for references, taking into account the impartiality of the situation and the objective purposes. This allows us to protect ourselves and our clients from the unpleasant consequences and to form a comprehensive picture of the candidate and determine whether he or she is appropriate for a particular position and organization.
