Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) March 19, 2013
Many organizations use employee referral programs to source new talent, but continuously engaging employees in the referral process can be a challenge. For this reason, Zao (http://zao.com), a social employee referral management platform, is hosting the complimentary webinar Gamification for Employee Referral Engagement on Wed., April 3 from 1 to 2 p.m. (ET).
Gamification is a great tool for achieving continuous engagement, and is becoming widely used in referral programs today. In fact, 70 percent of large companies (Global 2000 organizations) will implement some sort of game mechanics into their workplaces by 2014.
“Referrals are the number one source of quality hires, so keeping your employees involved in your referral programs is very important,” said Ziv Eliraz, founder and CEO at Zao. “Gamification can make the difference between unsuccessful referral programs that are abandoned, and great referral programs that are able to continuously engage employees over time.”
The webinar, hosted by Tina Carnow, Vice President of Business Development at Zao, will review how gamification works, why it’s relevant, and examine how it can be applied to referral programs. Those attending the webinar will also get the chance to learn some best practices for incorporating gamification into their employee referral programs.
“Since we know referrals provide companies with great employees, we need to find a way for employees to feel involved in the process,” Carnow said. “Gamification is a great way to solve engagement problems because it recognizes efforts, rewards those who do well, and provides companies with top candidates for the job.”
