Digital References Checking: Better For All Roles

Why Digital References are Better for All Roles


For internal recruitment teams, time is of the essence and in a challenging hiring market, minimising admin is key to remaining competitive. That’s where digital reference checking comes in, taking the legwork out of a critical recruitment task to ensure it is done quickly and with compliance.

But the buck doesn’t stop at certain roles or industries. Regardless of who you’re hiring, robust reference checking remains essential for confident recruitment decisions.

We’ve put together a guide that covers everything you need to know about digital referencing. Within this guide we have separated it into three parts:

  • Who are you hiring? - Whether you are looking to hire white collar, blue collar, volunteers or peak period hires, it is important to understand the challenges that are present in referencing and the solutions to help overcome them to create a smooth, stream-lined experience for your team, the referees and the candidates.
