Reference checks are a useful way to learn about a persons history, by connecting to those who know the person well - their peers, supervisors and subordinates. When you conduct a reference check, you will get a customized report that summarizes that person's behaviour in a number of circumstances. This can be useful as a part of the hiring process when you are trying to decide between candidates, or to ensure that you have the right fit. References are an additional tool, and give a unique perspective that can be challenging to obtain otherwise
Inline has been focused on references since 1997. We pride ourselves on being one of the few remaining full-service background check firms that offer references as part of our suite of checks. Our interviewers are highly-trained, and focused on getting to the core of a candidate's story. Our process has improved in this time, and so has the quality of our references.
As a Canadian company, we have always ensured that Canadians constitute our workforce. We understand that personal connection is important, and that the interview process is as important as the report that is delivered. For these reasons we have a rigorous training process for our interviewers and we never operate from call-centres. While outsourcing work to cheaper countries and jurisdictions may work for other providers, though Inline keeps it local. With Inline, Canadians will always be at the other end of the phone or email, to ensure continuity and a great experience for you, your candidates, and their references.
A lot has changed since we started conducting reference checks. This means faster turnaround times, more information and a smoother process for you, your candidates and their references. We use time-slot scheduling technologies, SMS messaging, calendar invites and reminders to ensure that your candidate's references can book from any device, at a time that best suits them. Best of all, you can get notified every step of the way.
Background checks in Canada can cover many parts of an candidate's history. Some checks are general, while others get more detailed. The goal of each check is to verify that what a candidate has claimed is actually true. These are a list of the most common checks, why they are conducted, and who these checks apply to:
