FAQs

An professional reference check helps you gain additional insight about a candidate you may not learn from a resume or interview such as job performance and skills, work accomplishments, and personal characteristics. This is done by asking your candidate’s references a series of questions either by email or phone.

The questionnaire results will show up in the report, available in your Certn dashboard.

All that’s needed is the applicant’s name and email or phone number to start the reference check.

Applicants will be asked to supply reference details in their background check.

The process for reference checks is simple. Here’s how it works:

  1. Choose your reference checks.
    In a digital reference check, an automated email is sent to the provided reference to complete the questionnaire.In a phone reference check, our team of experts calls the specified references and asks a series of open-ended questions to get the detailed information to need to make an informed hiring decision.
  2. Your candidate will be asked to provide 1-3 references for our team to interview (via digital or phone reference).
  3. Your detailed report gets created. The responses are available in your Certn dashboard.

Turnaround times depend on the responsiveness of the references but Certn’s in-house verifications team initiates the process within one business day.

Fantastic service from our account manager and his team. They are responsive and easy to get hold of, clear in their communication, helpful and friendly, keep on top of the screening process and do a great job. I’m so happy that I moved to Certn Credence.
HR Administrator SEB London
I’d definitely recommend Certn. I’ve used 3-4 alternative background screening companies before, and they do not compare at all to the service level provided by Certn.
