Review by John B. Mid-Market Talent Recruiter

Xref is the way to go. I like the ease of use for Xref. The navigating options/directions are crystal clear and it leaves less to do for the user (being able to send options with just a few clicks).
Xref is solving the issue of candidates being employed without a proper background check and also solving the issue of providing assurance when our stakeholders hire candidates with the use of the Reference Check option. Xref's flagging of suspicious activity is also extremely helpful.

Review by Shane S - HR Officer

Great Product - fast and reliable. I like the fact that it is all automated and easy to use. It benefits me through speed and time-saving when completing reference checks. 

Since Xref began in 2010, customers’ feedback has been crucial to improving the software and making it the best-of-breed and world-class in reference checking. This ranking and recognition comes as a result of the relentless dedication of the Xref team. 

Reference checking software helps employers and hiring managers to contact their potential hires’ professional references quickly and efficiently. Reference check solutions can eliminate the need for manual phone calls and email conversations by checking on candidates through surveys or other digital methods. 

To create the lists, G2 carefully analyses client reviews. The reviews are independent, legitimate and unbiased. 

Talent is on the Move

With talent on the move, business-critical platforms such as Xref are in high demand. Xref has significant expansion plans for seamless, end-to-end recruitment workflows through reference, Pulse and Exit surveys, tailored to the niche needs of recruiters and HR professionals. 

Broadening the scope of available automated HR solutions will allow organisations to not only understand the strengths and weaknesses of candidates coming into the business, but support them throughout their employment journey and uncover any feedback they have upon departure. This serves so support an organisation with growth and development for improved results when hiring and retaining future talent.
