This session will focus on the steps to follow when launching an employee referral program. Particular emphasis will be put on specific techniques and how they can be implemented.
According to recent surveys, employee referrals are still seen as the number-one source of hire, as well as retention. So, if you don’t have a strategic employee referral program, you may be missing out on some great potential employees.
Launching an employee referral program is not difficult, but it does take some calculated planning. For example, you first need to understand how your team operates. For instance, remote teams may need a program that’s set up differently than in-house teams. In addition, creating a career site is also an important addition to your referral program since it’s where your network can view jobs, as well as direct their network.
However, one of the most common practices in referral programs are the rewards aspect. In fact, 48 percent of employees report that rewards would further motivate them to participate. So, creating a program that rewards employees for their efforts is a great way to boost participation rates.
There are also additional methods to consider once the employee referral program has launched. For instance, gamification is a great way to create healthy competition among teams. Mobile capabilities ensure members of your network can view and then promote jobs from any device. Following-up and automation are also proactive measures employers can use to keep programs on track. These methods combined create a strong employee referral program, leading to better applicants and even better hires.
