I am sorry to disagree, but generally, i find most HR departments in the region to be very poor in this regard.

I am more of a hiring manager than an applicant, but the response of my own HR, and the response of other HR departments with respect to reference checks etc bears this out.

No doubt, there are exceptions - but i have yet to find one.
