  17. 17. Feedback to Employees<br />Email to : Charles Smith<br />Date: April 27 ,2011 <br />Congratulations! Your referral, Mary Ellen Hopkins, received an employment offer from MITRE this week.<br />If she should accept, and you continue to meet eligibility requirements, you could receive a referral bonus<br />soon after she is hired.<br />Thank you for your support and keep those referrals coming!<br />Gary Cluff<br />Corporate Recruiting Manager<br />
  18. 18. Lessons Learned<br />Constant promotion and education are critical to remind employees what the needs are and how to refer.<br />Without an employee feedback system, the perception is that too many referrals end up in a “black hole”. <br />Manage Expectations – not every referral will deserve or receive an interview.<br />It is not the size of the prize ($$$), but rather the engaging nature of the promotions. <br />
