Backy Check is loved by clients worldwide

I have used Backy Check as a background checking portal for our new recruits and my experience with the solution has been rewarding. The solution offered by Backy Check is simple, user friendly and effective. It is a great way to conduct reference checks and identify checks of potential candidates in a reliable and time-saving manner. The feedback from candidates – who we managed to recruit after reference checking – too has been quite favourable about the portal. I am eager to use it in the future while making Backy Check available to my HR team due to its higher level of credibility.

Reference Check FAQ

Contact us and we will happily take you through how Backy Check can support your business with reference checks by integrating these checks with your existing processes.

The length of time will depend on how the check is performed and the level of check needed based on company requirements and job role.

If it is done over the phone, a single reference check should take around 15 to 25 minutes. If the reference check is automated, it can take as quick as 30 seconds for an employer to request a reference. Once we have the responses, our team usually take one day to process those and provide you with a report.

If the reference check is automated, can take 30 seconds for an employer to request a reference. And once we have the responses we can take 1 day to process those and provide the report to the employer.

Reference checks are agreed by the hiring company and are there to confirm that candidates have been honest on their job application and with interview responses. Reference checks questions can relate to job titles, salary, employment dates etc. Some examples include:

  • When the applicant worked for your company.
  • Why an applicant left a company.
  • Whether an applicant was often late, or missed a lot of working days.
  • Whether an applicant preferred to work alone or in a team.
  • What an applicant’s biggest achievement was while working for a company.
  • Whether a former employer would rehire an applicant if the opportunity arose, and why.
  • How an applicant handled working under pressure.
  • What an applicant’s role was while working in a company.
  • Whether an applicant would be a good fit in a new position and why.

No, our portal is entirely online. You need just an internet connection and a browser. You can access it through your PC or smartphone.

It is not a reference check software. It is a lot easier, light, fast and secure.

Depending on your needs, we can also offer API, co-branded websites, and white-label solutions.
