Conducting reference checks

 

You are now down to the final one or two candidates to fill a vacant position. At this stage, it is good practice to conduct checks on their employment history and backgrounds.

Such checks could include:

  • Employment background checks
  • Education and qualification checks
  • Internet and social media searches

 

 

 

 

Employment background checks

 

For the employment background checks, the candidate usually provides the names of two to three past colleagues as referees. They typically were the candidate's direct supervisor, senior colleague or a Human Resource Manager.

In a background check, these questions are typically asked:

  • Could you confirm the period during which X worked at the company?
  • In what position did X work in? Who did X report to?
  • What were X’s responsibilities? How many staff reported to X?
  • How would you describe X’s performance?
  • What was X’s working style and people management style?
  • Why did X leave? Would you re-hire X?

 

 

 

Education and qualification checks

 

It is advisable to request for original and photocopies of the candidate's academic certificates and qualifications to ensure the candidate has been truthful about his or her education history.
