    Hi ASA Community - 

    With many companies working remote or on a hybrid model, we are finding getting references for light industrial and office candidates to be more time consuming than ever.  Many of our competitors don't do references and when we get information, it is just position and dates.  We are looking at revising our policy as more companies refuse to give information or want us to go through the Work Number which can be quite costly.  

    Would you be willing to share a best practice on referencing?  Do you do it for light industrial and manufacturing?  Or do you just try to confirm dates and position for past employment? 
    Thank you in advance!
