HUMAN RESOURCES MANAGEMENT: Reasons to ignore a bad reference

from Inc.

Between the interview and the job offer come the reference and background check. Background checks are easy enough: You just need to verify that people have the degrees they claim to have and that they don't have any surprising criminal history (any relevant convictions should have come up in your application process). If relevant, a credit check is also called for. If all those things check out, it's time to speak with actual other humans about your job candidate. Reference checks are generally necessary to lessen the chances of making a bad hire. (You can never completely eliminate the risk of bad hires.) After all, you don't want to hire the guy who embezzled from his last company, nor the woman who was fired for sexual harassment. But there are times you should think twice before taking a reference at face value. more
