Hi Deepa, Can you pls specify whether it is for rehiring ex-employee or for all new joinees etc.. Regards, Satpreet Kaur

Hi Deepa,
It depends upon the number of employees your company is hiring month on month. Generally if the joinee count is high than it is better to hire a third party verifiers, they'll do a ref check for your company, if it is out of budget than you can start with doing checks with their last organisation. You can check on the organisation's website for the HR mail ID and send a mail to them seeking the details of his employment tenure their, as I am sure that they must've done the check, you'll get the complete details. If the empoyee is a fresher than do a personal check by calling the personal references that he/she must've provided.
Lemme know if you require any furthe assistance..

Dear Deepa,
It is simply by asking the contact details given by the candidates. But it is advice to check the references before given offer and not at the time of joining. You can also contact past organization to know more about candidates. But you should contact past organization in such a way that it should not harm to that candidate, because it will disclose his intention of job changing.

HI Vipul ,
I some what agree on your point. but in my suggestion , one should not do ref check with candidate's current organisation before giving offer letter . simply coz it may harm the candidate's career. ( coz if candidate's relation with boss is not good etc etc ) secondly when company gives offer letter to any candidate, it is to be mentioned in the offer letter that " candidate can join this company subject to satisfactory reference check'"
so I dont think there is any harm in giving offer letter before ref check . also one should do the ref check immediately after issuing offer letter or the acceptance of offer from candidate's side.

Hi Deepa,
I will suggest you to take Immediate boss's contact details for ref chk for any candidates (till middle management level) .(at least 2 , if poss take 3 ref chk )and while talking to them chk abt
candidate's designation,yrs of exp with his boss, boss's designation,etc. if you dont find your conversation satisfactory with his boss then directly call up HR and take the details from them.
coz i have got this experience when i did ref chk of my candidate. he gave me his boss's number saying he was my reporting manager and designation is AVP.
Basically when u deal with AVP there should be some logical talk, or confidence , fluency in english , politeness in that person ( In general ) but that fellow started talking to me in Hindi and kind of quite relaxed nature. so i rechecked with HR of that company, and i found that candidate had given his friend's number as reporting manager.
so pls be aware while doing ref chk ........

Dear Deepa,
The first level of reference check can be by asking the contact details of an HR person and the candidate's immediate boss. Once you speak to them, you can ask their official e-mail ids and send an e-mail to confirm the details given over the phone. As far as my experience goes, people don't hesitate to give their official ids and the official ids are also a confirmation that you are taking to the right person.
Another way is, once a person submits his documents, like the relieving letter, the letter head always has a contact number for the company. You can call on that number and ask about the HR department and verify about the candidate.
Thanks,

Dear Deepa,
I'd suggest you empanel a BG Check partner to help you with Reference Checks.
While it's easier to take a number from the candidate and call to verify, it is not foolproof, they may just give you a friend's number.
One thing you can do is call the company's Board number and ask for the Supervisor by name, or email the company directly.
However, in practice it is better to let third party vendors do this.

Dear All,
It is not a must for the reference check top be onducted before issuing Offer letter. In stead you shall put a clause on to the Offer Letter that a reference check would take place and if that if the candidate is found to be guilty, the company would be reconsidering the offer given to the candidate....
