Employment Reference checks are an essential component of the pre-employment screening process, allowing employers to verify candidate information and gain valuable insights into their work history.

Despite their significance, referencing has often been described as a frustrating and time-consuming manual task, contributing to the lengthy average time to hire, which currently stands at 6.1 weeks in the third quarter of 2023, as reported by the Totaljobs Hiring Trends index.

Recognising the challenges posed by manual referencing, Amiqus has developed a  robust Automated Employment Referencing check to streamline and simplify the referencing process for recruiters and employers, making hiring a breeze.
