Comeet allows companies to set referral bonuses for employees upon successful hires. Before an employee shares a position using Comeet or your company's careers website, the page will prompt them with the referral bonus information associated with that position. If your company does not offer a referral bonus, the prompt will say that the employee will "get credit" for his referrals.

Important: If an employee shares your company's job openings page, the page will prompt them based on how the default referrals are configured within your Company Settings.

Company Default Referral Bonus

Users with the Admin or Owner role can access the Company Settings and configure the company's Default Referral Bonus. To access your company's referral settings, click on your name in the top right corner –> Settings –> Referral Program.

By default, Comeet sets the default referral bonus to No bonus, but you can configure the bonus to meet your company's needs.

Override Default Referral Bonus

Users with the Owner/Admin role or position Recruiters for a position's hiring team can override the company's default referral bonus. By navigating to the position Setting, the referral bonus can be changed for any specific position. You can select one of the following:

  • Use the company's default

  • Set to… – define a custom bonus for the position

  • No bonus for this position

Restricting Employee Referral by Company Domain

Users with the Admin and Owner company roles can restrict employee referrals to employees using an email address with your company's domain. To limit employee referrals, navigate to your name in the top right corner –> Settings –> Profile, and define your Company Email Domain. Multiple domains can be added in this field, separated by a comma.

Manually Adding a Referrer

If a candidate was added to Comeet outside the referral page, you can always manually add a referral source to a candidate by navigating to the candidate profile > Edit candidate and adding the employee's name in the Source field. Click enter, and select the Source type as Referral Compensated or Referral Uncompensated.

Promote Your New Referral Program

Once you have set up your Employee Referral program in Comeet, please visit our guide to help promote the program to the rest of your company's employees (even if they do not have a Comeet account!).

Export Bonus Report

Compensate your employee referrers. Visit Reports > Export > Referral bonus

  • Export only includes hires whose source is Referral Compensated or Referral Uncompensated.

  • The bonus column includes the bonus specified in the position or company bonus if the company default was used.

  • If there was a bonus, but nothing was defined at the position or company level, the value in the column will only say "bonus."

  • Hires made before July 1, 2019, before Comeet introduced this feature, will be shown as bonus "unknown."

  • The bonus is defined at the moment of the hire. This means the export will not reflect any changes made after the hire was made in the report for this specific hire.

  • If the bonus changes while a candidate is still under consideration, the report will reflect the amount at the time of the hire rather than the time of the referral.
