A new term we are using to describe the transformation of reference checking. I will be describing this in more details at Taleo World with Cargill. The presentation, Social Assessment: The New Pathway to Quality of Hire, will describe how Cargill has been transforming the inefficient and ineffective telephone reference checking process into an innovative method, often called Reference Check 2.0 or Social Assessment. Borrowing from the collective intelligence - proven decision science, as demonstrated by Google, Yelp or TripAdvisor, this presentation applies that science to talent assessment for better results and reduced costs.
