The Xref solution

SIR Corp owns and operates more than 60 restaurants and prides itself on the high level of service and standard of food it offers visitors. Meeting these expectations requires a robust hiring process to find the right people for the team.

Prior to introducing Xref, SIR Corp's HR team spent too much time on routine, mundane tasks and not enough time recruiting - the main frustration being the time spent calling and chasing references. Xref now manages the referencing to ensure the team are doing their due diligence with speed and accuracy at the final, critical stage of the hiring process.

Using Xref, SIR Corp has:

  • Improved the efficiency of the reference checking process
  • Been able to quickly collate and share candidate reports with hiring managers
  • Ensured that the same questions are asked of every candidate for a role, enabling candidate benchmarking
