During 2016 and 2017, Xref commissioned four research projects to identify the risks and challenges facing HR professionals, candidates and referees during recruitment, with insights obtained through an analysis of the reference checking process:

  • Australian Xref Recruitment Risk Index (2016)
  • Australian Xref Recruitment Risk Index: Industry Perspective (2017)
  •  Xref Recruitment Risk Index: The State of UK Referencing (2017)
  • Xref Recruitment Risk Index: A Canadian Industry Perspective (2017)

These reports uncover truths and answer questions such as:

  • How does each country shape up in regards to candidate deception?
  • Which countries’ organisations are at risk from poorly managed practices?
  • What volume of candidates are lost in each country due to process delays?
