It is important to understand the distinction between reference checking, employment verification and personal references. Any employer is going to be interested in knowing how the applicant they are interested in hiring performed in their past job. HR managers often feel that details on a potential new employee’s past work performance is a telltale sign on how they will work for the new company. Any information that can be obtained is helpful in making a decision, though getting that information isn’t always easy. This white paper reviews why during the reference check process, even if all you get is the verification of employment dates and job titles, the past employer phone calls are still important for safe hiring.
