Outsourcing Reference Checks to RED.

Would you hire someone without checking their references? It's a time consuming but necessary step in the hiring process, especially when we are talking about Mid-Management and Executive roles. Some people may think that an interview is enough to get a feel for the person they are interviewing, but this just isn't the case. The best way to find out if your candidate is up to standards or not is to ask them who they have worked for in the past and collect relevant feedbacks by their network.
