There are so may facets to the recruitment process and with 19 years of recruiting experience under my belt it tends to come as second nature to me so I don't question what I do.... because it works!
I have been asked to do some training to a group of recruitment franchise owner/managers on the subject of "Taking verbal references
" and I was hoping that I could get the membership here to give me some pointers as to why they take candidate references, how they go about getting the referees from candidates, the type of questions they ask and some examples of the real benefits to their desk.
What I hope to do is get them to buy into this element of the recruitment process, seeing it as a must do excercise
, rather than a "well I know I should take references, but I dont" kinda attitude. In my opinion it should be second nature.
Please help me relate to those who want to be a big biller
but sometimes question the methodology, or indeed ignore it!
Thank you all...
