Join me at the Rice Pow Wow!

Posted on 21 Sep 2016 by Becky Bean

It's been an exciting couple of months for the Xref family and I am pleased to announce that we will be supporting the guys at Rice Consulting with their RicePowWow networking evening held in Auckland on Thursday 29th September!

The RicePowWow is a casual networking event that Rice Consulting arrange quarterly in Auckland. The event provides the opportunity to discuss pressing Recruitment topics that are affecting our industry over some finger food and a few drinks. This is the perfect event to mingle with like-minded HR & Recruitment professionals whilst also learn some practical tips that you can take home with you.

This quarter's topic is around candidate fraud so Rice kindly invited me along to talk about the challenges of authenticating candidate references. This is a topic that the Xref family is extremely passionate about and we feel is often overlooked within the industry!

This topic has recently gained A LOT of popularity thanks to Hamish and Andy's referencing stunt which clearly demonstrated some hard truths within our industry. The prank highlights the value of adding rigour and governance to referencing candidates.

On a less serious note, it's also incredibly funny. If you haven't seen the video, you should below!

I’m hoping to see plenty of familiar faces on the 29th for some drinks and nibbles so please do check out the event via the link below and RSVP if you are keen to attend.

If you can't make it and would still like some more information about the Xref experience please drop me an email to:
