Boston is a mecca for high growth startups. Sharing the talent pool with companies like Salsify, EzCater, and Toast is no easy feat. Not to mention competing with the likes of Facebook, Google, Microsoft, and Amazon offices. There’s a lot of companies reaching for the same talent right in Klaviyo’s backyard. What’s even harder is hiring quality people, fast.

Lightspeed’s Startup Hiring Trends Report discovered that new hire onboarding, referral programs, and performance reviews were the most common. These programs are designed to foster career development, build company culture, and promote general employee well-being. They are the key to building and scaling successful teams.

Everyone involved here knows perfectly well that the people on a reference list are expecting your call, and they’re probably prepared to sing the candidate praises. So if you already know exactly how this conversation is going to go, why bother picking up the phone? The truth is, reference checks can be extremely valuable.
We already know that references provided by candidates tend to be skewed positive, and that’s not always particularly helpful to the person trying to decide if a candidate is the right fit. So how do you get a more balanced picture of what this person is actually like in the workplace?
Forward-thinking companies leverage their entire referral network. Hiring is the top challenge for startups and Fortune 500 companies alike. Thinking about hiring in a holistic way through referral networks can help you win at employer branding, recruitment marketing, and referral hiring.
