To go from nothing to Checkster would be like opening [employers’] eyes to insight about candidates that they never experienced before. They will very quickly see who will really deliver versus who simply interviews well."

We will cover in this case study:

  • Goal of Checkster at Cargill
  • Early Day Skepticism to Full Value
  • Spot Good Employees vs. Good Applicants
  • Implementation of automated reference check 

Checkster’s main benefits for Cargill

  • Delivering better service to the hiring managers by gaining better insight about candidates that can be used to evaluate hiring decisions. That is why Cargill performs Checkster on finalists before the decision is made, and uses the information gathered in Checkster’s reports to further inquire about a candidate’s qualifications during the interview. This increases the quality of their hires and reduces poor hiring decisions.
  • Cutting costs and speeding up the process while reducing the reference response time by 5 days, and the amount of time spent on conducting reference checks on each candidate from 90 minutes to 5.
  • Avoiding legal issues by being more consistent and avoiding exposure. Checkups are created in summary format where no one references’ feedback is identifiable. This anonymization is explained to references prior to collecting their input, so they feel freer in providing rich details about the candidates’ strengths and opportunities.
