online reference checks to secure talent faster.

A well-executed reference is the best screening tool hiring managers have to ensure quality placements and avoid hiring mistakes. The candid feedback from a direct supervisor is invaluable to help confirm skills, understand work habits, and judge environmental and cultural fit. But a slow process might result in losing a top candidate. With relevate reference, you gain the speed and efficiency you need to make the right hires at the right time.

what it is

Relevate reference captures data and feedback during critical points in your hiring process, consolidating this information into powerful, easy-to-understand insights that allow you to make better hiring decisions. By utilizing collective human intelligence, relevate reference helps mitigate bias — both human and machine — all while improving the quality, compliance and speed of critical talent decisions.

when to consider

Whenever a client requests reference checking during the hiring process, relevate reference is the go-to-tool. Reference checking can be a very time consuming and tedious process. With relevate reference, the process is automated and the referee can send his or her testimony at any time and place, from any device. This means no more back-and-forth calling (and reaching voicemail), but an effective process that's within your control.


Relevate reference can be used as a single tool, but can also be implemented together with other tools to gather new hire insights. Relevate reference combines candidate and new hire data to make sure the candidate or starter is the right fit for the job.
