Employee referrals have gained increasing notoriety in the past few years, and for good reason. They work! Time and again, study after study has shown that referrals make better hires.
- Account for less than 10% of all applications but almost half of all hires
- Onboard faster, 26% and 48% faster than job board and career site applicants respectively
- Stay longer, with almost 50% staying for more than three years
It’s no wonder that everyone is trying to get the most out of their employee referrals, and to tap this potential, many are turning to an increasingly crowded market of referral program platforms for help.
Founded in early 2011, EmployeeReferrals.com has quickly grown to become the industry leader in employee referral services, and your best choice for help in developing a robust and successful employee referral program. But don’t take our word for it; take a look at what Global Recruiting and Talent Management Executive, Jason Buss* of Tri Net had to say about his EmployeeReferrals.com experience.
“I was very impressed with the overall implementation and integration process. The integration with our ATS was seamless, and it was a lot quicker than I anticipated. In addition to the overall communication, training and implementation plan, we had a lot of support from EmployeeReferrals.com. It was a very smooth and easy implementation.
“Working with EmployeeReferrals.com has been a great experience. They are very open to feedback and enhancement. When we first joined it was a younger company, and we worked a lot to make sure the technology would meet our requirements overall. The ease of the implementation, in addition to the support…and openness to new ideas and feedback to evolve the technology has been outstanding.”
“The thing that [our recruiters] like most about EmployeeReferrals.com is that it takes a lot of the work off our employees. And the matching technology that goes behind the system and the integration with our ATS make a recruiter’s job a lot easier to track, qualify and follow up with both our candidates and the employees that referred them.”
“Our referral activity jumped nearly 300% in the first 60 days, and our referrals hired are up 60% since implementing the [EmployeeReferral.com] solution.”
“If you’re looking to increase the referrals within your organization or optimize your referral program, I would without a doubt, 100% support EmployeeReferrals.com”
