Hiring Automation: Post-Interview Reference Checks

In a previous blog post, we detailed how we automate the pre-interview portion of our hiring process. Before continuing here, make sure you read through the pre-interview automation first as the post-interview automation builds on that. 

After the applicant answers our pre-interview questions with our chatbot, the next phase is a phone interview. Nothing to automate further here, we simply look to validate the information we’ve collected already in our previous automation and get a feel for the candidate’s personality and experience. The stories candidates tell us will later be validated with the reference check process, which brings us here today.

Work Productivity & Energy Management - What We Lose Thinking About Time

“Have you considered better time management?”

Pitfalls of Performance Marketing or Revenue Share Marketing

I’m proud to say that we’re one of the few consultancies to provide Revenue Share agreements across marketing and sales campaigns with our clients. In an agency world of Pay Per Lead (PPL) and payment based on a percentage of Paid Advertising Budget, we’ve succeeded in often negotiating and aligning interests with our customers and partners around mutually beneficial outcomes. 

I’m equally ashamed to say that we’ve had more than our fair share of poor investments. Poor investments in companies, clients, and partners that we failed to properly assess and set up for success.
