Reference checking & compensation negotiation

We conduct an in-depth, 360-degree candidate check, speaking with supervisors, peers and employees. If requested, we also work with third-party vendors to carry out psychological, intellectual or skills-based assessments. And we serve as an objective intermediary to facilitate the process of negotiating compensation.
