Great automated and asynchronous way to collect references

5.0 last year

Comments: The product was setup within less than 20mins and since then very low maintenance but very engaging in a positive way. It keeps reference, referee and recruiter informed about the status quo and allows to gather additional critical information without much extra effort. The team behind HiPeople is great to work with - we received competent consultancy from their inhouse-experts and the customer service was super responsive.

Pros:

An automated & asynchronous way to collect references that enables our talent team to not run behind references calls but can rely on the hipeople process to remind and inform the candidates. The software has a dynamic component that explores if a reference is ambiguous or strong enough and asks the referee to clarify with followup questions.

Cons:

References are usually positive and there is quite some competence in decrypt good from great references.

Couldn't be more satisfied

5.0 last year

Comments: I am super happy that Celonis is one of the very early adapters of this tool. HiPeople helps us to improve our hiring quality in an efficient way by automating the whole reference check process. As mentioned before, I can't wait to see what comes next. This company really helps us to create our infinite loop of insights.

Pros:

HiPeople is a real gamechanger, several references can not only be collected at lightspeed but due to this amazing product you get insights to candidates you did not have access to before. I really believe in this approach since Day1 and the guys from HiPeople are definitely not done yet. I am more than curious to see how this product will evolve.

Cons:

Honestly there is not much I can share. Even if there is a small bug in the system from time to time (this happens rarely), the support team is literally available 24/7 and always super supportive to solve the issue.

Great way for refrencing

5.0 last month New

Comments: absolutely awesome!

Pros:

awesome tool for people to get a quick prompted reference, often you don't know what to answer, but this is great

Cons:

I think if you are going to ask the questions for a specific person, start each answer with that persons name so that the answer makes more sense

HiPeople, automated reference check when focussed on hiring high quality talent

3.0 8 months ago

Comments: Overall we have a great experience with HiPeople. They truly appreciate our feedback on the tool/features and are always keen on improving where ever they can. They respond quickly on our (support) questions. Collaboration with the team of HiPeople is overall very good and always respectful with a bit of personal touch in their approach which i appreciate.

Pros:

HiPeople is easy to use and innovative. To tailor make the reference check so its aligned with the job requirements is easy to set up. And the Reference Check overview (outcome of the references) delivers us an additional assessment in our selection process of our applicants. The overview provided by the tool gives us insights on applicant behaviours, skills and performance and helps us to take a decision to compare this assessment report with the other steps in our selection process. Focus is on hiring qualitative talent.

Cons:

The Reference check report isnt visible in our ATS Greenhouse, although via the link in Greenhouse you are immediately directed to the report of the applicant. I know HiPeople is working on this feature to improve and make the report also visible in Greenhouse.

Easy reference check

5.0 2 months ago

Pros:

Was easy to have my references automatically contacted

Cons:

One reference thought that the system was trying to access his LinkedIn, better communication to references might improve this

Great way to learn more about New Hires!

5.0 last year

Comments: I've enjoyed working with the product and the team. I am excited to get our managers more engaged with the software and improving our overall hiring and onboarding performance.

Pros:

HiPeople provides really great insights from references that not only help make hiring decisions, but also helps us to learn more about our future colleagues, their way of work, and how to help them be successful. I provides standardization that significantly reduces bias or human-error in the reference taking process. The team are also fantastic and provide great support and service.

Cons:

The software is still fairly new - which means there are sometimes small kinks that need to be ironed out, but with regular releases and updates, I have no doubt that those will be resolved by the time you read this.

Excellent product

5.0 last year

Comments: The customer service has been outstanding - whenever a new request is made from our side or issue occurs, it is usually fixed on the same day. The platform is excellent, very easy to use and continuously improved. The team listens to what we need for our processes and strategies to be even more successful and releases new updates to address the matter. They get back to recruiters and candidates really quickly if they are contacted directly. It's a very helpful, motivated, and well-connected team that's great to work with.

Pros:

Very valuable insights can be gathered using the software, ease of use is a key feature, the support from the HiPeople team is great and they are constantly working on improving the tool and implementing exciting new features. It also saves a lot of time and money.

Cons:

It took a bit longer for some employees to get used to the software due to new updates that were introduced during the implementation phase.
