There is a growing trend in the U.S. to abandon reference checks as part of the recruiting process because they are time consuming, labor-intensive and often elicit very little information on the telephone.
This is alarming on a number of levels. First, 80% of sexual predators in the U.S. do NOT have a criminal history. That's correct. Why? I could spend 100 pages explaining this but simply put, we as a culture do a very poor job generating trust from victims to report these violent crimes and the criminal justice systems does an even worse job of prosecuting these predators.
So if you are trying to keep sexual predators out of your organization, a criminal background check alone will not work.
The great news is there is new option for conducting high quality reference checks quickly, automated and inexpensively. RefLynk is the only automated reference checking software that can also send invitations to your candidates and their references via text.
Would you be shocked to find out that reference checks could cost you pennies per candidate?
