    Email to : Charles Smith
    Date: April 27 ,2011
    Congratulations! Your referral, Mary Ellen Hopkins, received an employment offer from MITRE this week.
    If she should accept, and you continue to meet eligibility requirements, you could receive a referral bonus
    soon after she is hired.
    Thank you for your support and keep those referrals coming!

  • 18. Lessons Learned
    Constant promotion and education are critical to remind employees what the needs are and how to refer.
    Without an employee feedback system, the perception is that too many referrals end up in a “black hole”.
    Manage Expectations – not every referral will deserve or receive an interview.
    It is not the size of the prize ($$$), but rather the engaging nature of the promotions.
