SkillSurvey Reference is a cloud-based, data-driven solution that helps you quickly access relevant feedback from the people who know how your candidate performs on the job - their references. With two workflows available, you can select the option that best meets your hiring needs: The Pre-Hire 360® workflow is a scientifically validated, job-specific process that has been proven to reduce turnover for cause, and the customer configured capability enables your organization to define the referencing process to meet the unique needs of certain workforce segments.

With SkillSurvey’s Pre-Hire 360 workflow you can:

  • Simplify reference checking: check references in a matter of minutes – and get feedback within a day or two.
  • Select from hundreds of job-specific surveys packed with questions about the soft skills that lead to on-the-job success (including the skills candidates need to successfully work remotely).
  • Improve talent selection and shorten time-to-fill with consistent, best practice reference checks that help reduce bias.
  • Enhance hiring manager satisfaction by providing detailed job-specific reference feedback, candidate summaries and behavioral interview guides.
  • Reduce turnover: client research results show involuntary turnover can be reduced by over 35% (in just the first year).
  • Seamlessly integrate with LinkedIn Talent Hub and make it easy for your references to respond.
  • Expand your talent network by tapping into a new source of passive candidates.
