GIVE MORE

Create unforgettable candidate journeys

Share references with candidates. Through blockchain technology individuals can truly own and control all their work data, then re-use it throughout their career.

Referencing is broken

Referencing has decreased by two thirds in the last eight years, due to an approach which is outdated, time-consuming and inherently biased. References have become too focused on compliance, rather than being used to gather real life, qualitative insights.

Enter Zinc

Zinc tackles both sides of the problem by making referencing fast, easy and trustworthy, while also delivering in-depth insights on candidate performance. So you have everything they need to make better hiring decisions and help new hires perform at their best.

Zinc can save recruiters time referencing, extract unique insights and transform your candidates' experiences.
