Checking references during the hiring process should never be the responsibility for an entrepreneur.
Reference checks are a process that human resources handle.
Hiring remote staff in the Philippines is no different than hiring in your local area.
You must always check references before you hire anyone.
Asking for a reference is a great way to measure a candidate’s ability to show up and to do the work.
If you do not check references, it can cost you a lot of time and effort if you end up hiring someone unfit for the job.
Here at Somebody2Hire we have a strict policy. We always check references to make sure that we are giving our clients the best possible candidates for the job.
