Reference Checks Give Organisations Valuable Insight Into Their Work Ethic And Integrity

In 2018, the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) conducted research^ discovered that between 20 and 30 per cent of job applications contained some form of false information. The report also states that “the detrimental effects that poor employment screening practices have can be very wide-reaching”.

With a high number of resumes containing inaccurate information, failing to conduct a reference check can be very costly to organisations. Given that candidates falsify work experience, credentials and reasons for termination, a thorough reference check is important.

Indeed, reference checks do more than just measure and report on a candidate’s technical skills and work experience, they also give organisations valuable insight into their work ethic and integrity. In this blog, Accurate Australia explained why in-depth and probative reference checks play an important role in supporting successful recruitment.
