Virtual Talent Acquisition Recap

Posted on 02 Nov 2016 by John Dawson

Last week Xref Canada took part in Virtual Talent Acquisition webcast by hosting a webinar “Reference Checks, It’s Time HR Got More Serious About Them". is the largest human resource social network which gifts leading HR executives with tips, knowledge and best practices that help them boost their performance and develop their careers.

Talent acquisition virtual webcasts offer online courses, and demos in topics related to Talent Exchanges, Staffing and Sourcing as well as Recruitment Process Outsourcing and Quality of Hire. This is where members are invited to listen to thought leaders in the staffing industry, covering topics that will help companies make better decisions in all areas of staffing.

The webcast proved to be the ideal forum for us to discuss the increasing prevalence of automation in business process improvement and why the HR industry is no different. In this particular webcast, we looked at the role of reference checking in the recruitment process and how a prudent referencing system can offer genuine value by ensuring the substantial time and money that are invested into hiring the right candidate is resource well spent. 

We shared our views that reference checking should be the backbone of the recruitment lifecycle and how Xref is leveraging technlogy to ensure unprecedented reference quality and 24 hour turnaround times which ultimately allows users to fill positions sooner.

The webcast was a great way to connect with HR professionals who are serious about evolving their businesses and stay up to date with industry trends. If you’d like to be a part of’s community click here and stay tuned for our next webcast!
