The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, February 19, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET.

Last week we talked about celebrated Valentine’s Day the “world of work” way, and this week we’re talking improved quality of hire via the threat of reference checks.

The holy grail of hiring are the high performers organizations so long to find, recruit and retain forever and ever. The happy "A players" who create and add to your culture and improve the business bottom line.

While rigorous screening techniques and assessments are in the midst of a renaissance, multiple interviewers and the threat of real-time reference checks can and are still powerful screeners. Yes, there are legally only a few “name, rank and serial number” questions potential employers can ask, but according to this week’s guest, reference checks are still a powerful “truth serum.” 

Join #TChat co-creators and hosts Meghan M. Biro and Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about the power of reference calls with this week’s guests: Chris Mursau, Vice President at Topgrading, and Jean Lynn Director of HR at Home Instead Senior Care.

A special thank you to our sponsors: Virgin PulseDice, and TalentWise.
