  1. 1. Employee Referrals 5-Pointer Roadmap for 2014
  2. 2. If you’re frustrated with the mostly mediocre results produced by your current corporate employee referral program, it is important to realize that with only a handful of action steps you can dramatically improve both the quality and the volume of referrals. It’s that time of the year, where budgeting and strategic road mapping for the next year takes place. Let’s look at 5 action steps to consider as you build your employee referral recruiting strategy for 2014 .
  3. 3. Keep it Simple! Remember that simplicity and clarity encourage more qualified referrals A good Employee Referral Program is clear and precise about the rules (who is eligible, who isn’t, the terms of the program, bonus payouts for different positions, minimum qualifications needed for a referral to be considered “qualified,”etc.)
  4. 4. Set expectations The employees need to realize that these referral programs not only help hire good talent but will help play a key role in building a great team An Employee Referral Program is a company based initiative and not an HR project and hence expectations from the program should be communicated to the employees. The organization should make sure that the employees understand the benefits, track the result of referred candidates, reward successful referrals and discourage referrals spams.
  5. 5. Use Social Media Employees can now take open jobs in front of a large pool of qualified candidates using social media integrated tools available today Social recruiting is an efficient and costeffective way to find qualified candidates and thus boost your employee referral program results. Social networks are free, practically everyone uses them already, and they’re a good means to showcase your brand.
  6. 6. Make it easy for them Educate your employees on “Best Practices” to find and identify top talent Referral Program-specific emails can be sent to employees or creating a landing page/microsite where they can learn more about ERP can help. An automated referral portal which will handle the entire process from posting jobs for recruiters to making referrals for employees can drastically help increase output.
  7. 7. Respond and Appreciate A successful referral program depends on how proactive you are. It also means thanking your employees and appreciating their contribution. If your employees are working hard to give solid referrals, those referrals should be processed in a timely manner. It is important to acknowledge every referral received and is more important to keep the employees’ updated on the status of their referrals. Reward your ERP’s early participants and champions right away.
