What is ReferenceCheck?

Checking someone’s employment references is an important step in the hiring process that can help you make informed decisions about whether or not to hire a candidate.

The service can be integrated with our DBS and Digital Identity check functionality allowing for the complete application cycle to be processed on the same system.

ReferenceCheck allows you to process references for new employees online, as well as receive notifications when a completed reference is successfully returned. Watch our overview video >> of EmploymentCheck services.
