If you’re not already running an employee referral program, you’re missing out on a proven method of sourcing candidates with high potential for employment. On average, companies that use the Comeet-powered referral program drive over 30% of their hires from referrals.
Comeet makes it simple to launch an effective, engaging and rewarding employee referral program. Here’s how to create your own:
1. Choose bonus fees and participation options
Data shows that paying bonuses increases the number of employees who’ll actively promote the company's openings. You may want to adjust the amount depending on the position’s seniority or competition for the skills and experience you seek.
2. Start promoting the program
Emphasize to your employees the opportunity to earn referral bonuses while helping the company grow. We recommend sending the following email that includes a link to the below video to your employees to inspire them to start sharing job openings with their friends and social circles:
Subject: Company Referral Program: Help us grow & you’ll be rewarded
