Reference checking is a process that verifies the information provided by the candidate; it can also include background checks.
Background checking is a process that checks or validates for criminal records, education documentation, visa status etc.
A reference check is a valuable opportunity for a prospective employer to learn about the candidate from the perspective of their previous manager or colleagues. It is the only stage in the recruitment process that leverages the opinions of someone other than the candidate.
This insight can help the hiring manager gain a deeper understanding of who the candidate really is and how they applied or learnt the skills they have. A good reference check seeks to capture insights about the candidate’s reliability, communication, ability to collaborate and how they work as part of a team, among other aspects, depending on the role. Learning this information can be helpful for a manager to understand how this person will fit into their team and if they have what it takes to succeed in the role and manage the tasks that will be required of them.
Referee feedback is not made available to the candidate. Only the potential employer who has initiated the check will have access to it.
