Are you asking the right questions when conducting a reference check?

In the excitement that follows finding the right candidate, employers often forget that the reference checking process is an important part of recruitment.

It is vital that the right questions are asked during the reference checking process to ensure both time and money are not wasted on a failed hire. It is also an important step in identifying any potential weakness or training needs during their employment.
