Why use a job reference generator?

Software solution for companies

In Germany, it is a legal requirement to write and hand out job references to (ex-) employees. In the process, more than 3 million job references are written every year, which means a great deal of work for the HR departments of companies of all sizes in the DACH region.

Due to the requirement to write benevolent, but also truthful certificates, the cloistered language of certificates comes into play. To ensure that all parties involved are satisfied, individual and, above all, legally compliant references must be created. Only in this way does the company not have to fear negative legal consequences.

Certificate generators speed up the process and thus significantly relieve the HR department and employees' supervisors. The guided process makes quick creation possible without knowledge of the certificate language. While a simple grade is assigned for the employee's skills and characteristics, legally tested formulations ensure that no unintentional assessments are made due to the certificate creator's ignorance.

The completely digital process enables employees, supervisors and HR managers to be involved in the creation of job references, regardless of location and without any coordination effort. Rapid preparation not only saves resources in the company, but also leads to satisfied employees and strengthens the company's employer branding even after a separation.

The innovative process of
verlingo job reference generator

Creating testimonials is teamwork

In verlingo zeugnisgenerator, various workflows are available for the creation of references. Employees can easily be integrated into the creation process. The master data and an individual job description can be entered by the employee and, if desired, a self-assessment can be made using sliders. Many personnel managers are unable to describe the activities performed by the employee themselves, or can only do so with great effort.

The supervisor is then automatically informed and can make adjustments and his or her performance appraisal. The HR manager takes over the generation of the certificate, makes final adjustments and sends the finished certificate.

In the process, employees relieve the burden on supervisors and HR staff and speed up the entire process. Employees receive their references more quickly and are informed of the current status at all times via a live status. Follow-up is no longer necessary for anyone involved.

Of course, job references can also be created directly without the involvement of supervisors and employees. Select the process that makes the most sense for the respective job reference individually. With employee and supervisor. Only with employee. Only with supervisors. Directly without third-party involvement.

Job references in Germany

Writing job references means a lot of effort for companies

The legal requirement for a truthful and benevolent assessment of employees in qualified job references brings with it many challenges. In order to resolve the often existing contradiction between benevolent and truthful, a technical language, the so-called reference language, has developed.

This is a form of technical jargon in which the phrases contain hidden messages and notes. Everyone knows formulations such as "to the fullest satisfaction" or "always endeavored". Since many other formulations and rules exist, persons who are to write job references need an appropriate specialized knowledge of the reference language.

This cannot be guaranteed in all companies in Germany; qualified personnel is rare and corresponding further training is expensive. Behind each formulation, which is made by creators without expertise, lurks the danger that unintentionally negative assessments of the employee are made. The lack of essential information can also convey negative messages. In the worst case, it can lead to a legal dispute.

A few years ago, it was published that thousands of legal disputes are fought out every year before German labor courts because of job references. Legally tested text modules ensure that the formulations correspond to the desired assessments.

Millions of job references

Each year, employers must produce millions of credentials.
