Make Sure Reference Checks Are Performed 100% of the Time

Up to 30% of resumes contain exaggerated or inaccurate information. Reference check verifications are a great way for you to find discrepancies in a candidate’s information and determine whether they’re a reputable and credible person to add to your team. References provide a testimonial of a candidate’s character from a non-biased third person. Not only can you gain an understanding of how someone works on the job and with a team, but you also gain insights into their personality and behaviour. You want employees who can collaborate well with your team and company culture.

Learn more about how our reference check verifications can help you verify a candidate’s character to find the best fit for your company.

Typical reference questions focus on dependability, honesty, judgment, character, strengths and areas for improvement.

At Triton, we understand that one size does not fit all. This is particularly true of reference checks. Depending on your industry and the positions within your company, you may wish to investigate or ask different questions to gauge everything from professionalism to safety in the workplace.

A Triton agent will ask you about the types of positions you hire for, which helps us formulate specific questions for the reference check process. We can also provide you with a number of questions (up to 20) that you can tailor to your liking. Alternatively, you can give us a complete set of questions that you deem appropriate.

Once we determine the questions, we load them into the Triton Advantage platform. Every time you request a reference background check, we’ll use those questions to conduct your specific check and will upload the results into your account within 24 to 48 hours.

Triton is an excellent company to work with. They are very responsive and accommodating to all of our business needs. They will go out of their way to meet the customers’ requirements including adapting their process for special requests.
