Crosschq + Greenhouse: The Perfect Partnership


At Crosschq, our overarching goal is to provide every customer with a faster, better, more impactful hiring experience. Since we’re a preferred partner with Greenhouse, it allows customers to streamline their reference checking process by integrating Crosschq 360 with Greenhouse’s powerful applicant tracking system for an optimized talent acquisition process.  


You can effortlessly incorporate Crosschq into your existing Greenhouse workflow by adding a Crosschq reference to any stage of the interview process. In just minutes, you can set up an account and candidate, enabling your recruiters to quickly access unbiased human feedback for the candidate they are considering hiring. 


Being able to easily send reference requests, see results, and track applicants help everyone involved in the hiring process to save time and costs associated with the recruitment process, from hiring managers and HR departments to the talent being sourced. 

Greenhouse: An Ideal Recruitment Platform

Greenhouse users are already able to access and optimize job listings across 1,000+ large and niche job boards, using recommendations that are directly based on historical and industry performance.


Within Greenhouse, hiring teams, recruiters, HR departments, and talent can seamlessly collaborate and communicate, using @mentions and shared application reviews. Job and offer approvals happen in real-time, with alerts and notifications tied to tasks and candidate tracking in progress.


New job postings can be swiftly set up and deployed by simply configuring the relevant fields to capture necessary information from hiring managers. New roles and candidates can likewise be set up within the system, and the Greenhouse Recruiting candidate scorecard aligns with Crosschq’s own mission to enhance diversity and reduce unconscious bias.  


Greenhouse users can ensure candidates are empowered by encouraging them to prerecord their names with the correct pronunciation and indicate preferred pronouns. This sets up the hiring team to easily and respectfully address candidates correctly and shows organizations are supportive of their employees.


Scorecards of key attributes can be customized for each role, and candidates are consistently evaluated to find top matches. Career pages and customizable email templates reinforce branding, while a wide range of applicable language options helps create an impressive candidate experience.


Candidates sourced using Greenhouse have the flexibility to self-schedule interviews at a convenient time. Reporting options and plenty of connectors mean Greenhouse and Crosschq users can access plenty of other tools as needed for a seamless hiring funnel that draws on all of the most useful technologies available.
