Executive Background Reference Checks

Executive Background Reference Checks

    The appointment of an executive whose background reveals important shortcomings can seriously damage the image of an organisation. As part of our executive search service or as a one-off engagement, we provide organisations with a rigorous, thoughtful and forensic executive comprehensive screening solution of their potential candidates, designed to reveal insights into a person’s management style, aptitude and personality that cannot always be uncovered during an interview.

    We engage formally with all provided referees, as well as informally with unnamed referees or business associates that we have recognised through our enquiry.

We check education results, past work engagements, credit references, bankruptcy notice, and court judgements to help clients hire the right candidates and have peace of mind about their people and processes. In addition, each candidate is subject to a thorough online and social media analysis.

The information gained from the reference process helps to guide some of the problems associated with making senior executive appointments, and can be particularly valuable when a client wants an independent check on a potential candidate who has not been introduced by Protégé Management.
