1. Advantages and strengths

Overview

Referrals are faster, better fit into the organization, smoother, more loyal, and more engaged.

The chances that they themselves become referrals are high. The cost savings potential is great and the application process much easier and faster.

2. Priorities and selection

Overview

Employee Referral Programs should be targeted and are particularly suited to hard-to-fill positions. Also expert and key positions or special demands on talents and skills are suitable.

For quick and easy to fill vacancies, there should be no referral programs.

3. Support and assistance

Overview

Employees should receive support - eg through the following activities:

  • "How-to-be-a-Power-Recommender" -training in workshops,
  • the use of social media and appropriate tools,
  • a flyer that explains everything you need, such as the bonus model and employer appeal
  • Exchange of experience among recommenders

Incentives for referral programs

Overview

In order for an employee referral program to be implemented, there must also be various incentives:

1. premium models

Overview

Premium models have a significant impact on the candidate quality and the quantity of recommended ones.

Season bonuses tied to employee benefits are the most effective. Intangible incentives as an adjunct and the ability to select value premiums have proven to be best.

2. information and communication

Overview

Above all, it is important: job advertisements with exact requirement profiles and an overview of which vacancies exist and when recommendations from whom are particularly welcome.

Employee recommendations should be constantly discussed and communicated, for example in blogs, eMailNewsletters and employee magazines and achievements are celebrated.

3. Participants and target groups

Overview

Define the target groups, functions and positions of the program participants so that they receive good quality and appropriate recommendations, which has an influence on the quality or qualification of recommended employees.

Dedicated, qualified, performance-conscious and loyal employees are usually the best referrals.

Practical implementation

Overview

But also on the practical implementation, the return of investment is important. In particular, the following should be noted:

1. Success control and key figures

Overview

Success control and key figures also include the following questions:

  • What is the recruitment quota for employee referrals?
  • How much is a new employee?
  • What is the duration and fluctuation rate compared to other instruments?
  • Are there gender, cultural, regional or national differences?
  • Who or which jobs and departments are most recommended?

2. Instruments and automation

Overview

The easier and more efficient referral programs are, the more successful they are.

There are quite powerful tools like the XING recommendation manager, Facebook tools or Eqipia, Firstbird and Talentry, which automate the search, digitize the two-way process and make it easier for everyone involved.
