Depending on how many reference checks you currently carry out you could be saving thousands of hours a year. A simple way to do a quick calculation is to use the following equation (assuming with manual reference collection, 1 reference on average take about 1 hour to arrange, carry out the call, edit and send onto a client.)
No. of recruiters in team x No. of references they each carry out a month x 12 months = Total Hours Saved per Annum
Example – with a team of 20 recruiters carrying out 10 references a month each, hours saved would equal:
20 x 10 x 12 = 2400 hours!
How many hours is your team spending on collecting references? Could they be spending their time in a better way to generate more revenue?
