What is the Recruitment Risk Index?

Xref launched in 2011 to address a key industry issue: the inefficiency, inconsistency, and vulnerability of phone-based reference checking.

To quantify our claims we conducted independent research to support the advice and recommendations we offer our clients by surveying 1,000 Canadian job seekers and 100 HR Professionals.
