Topgrading: HR Tests blog provides false feedback

A recent comment on the "HR Tests - Recruitment, assessment, and personnel selection" blog site questions the viability of Topgrading, suggesting that it is only useful in in-house hiring since a candidate's current employer will not serve as a professional reference.  Having applied the TORC portion of the Topgrading process, I would suggest that a candidate who is serious about pursuing a new position will find away to have current peers and superiors or recent past peers and superiors function as professional references.  The true value of the detailed reference checks goes well beyond validation of qualifications.  Detailed reference checks used as part of the finalist candidate selection process can afford the opportunity to explore how candidates overcame weaknesses or shortcomings that many still be a concern.  All corporate recruiting strategies should include at least some elements Topgrading.
