Do people really open up more to a third party phone call from someone they don't know versus me, sitting across from them?
It is surprising, but true. Ex-employees will open up more to a third party calling them, then they would to their trusted HR professional.
This is not unlike using a mask. There is a layer between the employer and employee when a third party conducts the interview. The layer, since it creates anonymity, allows the barrier of self protection to fall down, allowing more truthful and complete answers versus sitting across from someone who they know, but are unsure of. It is the confidentiality that draws out the honest responses from the employees. This is the reason that the success rate is so high when we call.
Since the questions are designed by you, you are still getting the information you need. You can be as specific as you want, and set qualifiers along the way. The system collates responses for you. As an added “human” factor on our end, if we do get a red flag such as harassment, discrimination, theft or anything else illegal or immoral, our researcher will contact you immediately. We don’t wait in hopes that you find it. We are HR professionals and know when issues are vital to the growth of your organization.

"I wanted to let you know how wonderful your service is. Recently I sent SingleSource the information from several applicants. Some of the applicants failed to disclose information that makes them ineligible for hire. Because of fear of litigation, many companies will not give references for previous employees; so I recently started using SingleSource to verify previous employment. There is a world of difference when you have that additional information to help you make personnel decisions. SingleSource helps me make better personnel decisions, which helps our company grow and provide quality service. When I can hire with confidence, I gain peace of mind and I am able to reduce my liability."
