Social recruitment software company RolePoint, have produced an eye-catching infographic that details the many benefits for companies that want to implement an employee referral program. In the past couple of years, researchers now recognize that employee referral programs are consistently the best method of recruiting top quality candidates to an organization.
It is expected that RolePoint’s latest inforgraphic will help companies clearly see the multiple benefits to implementing an employee referral program. Their use of convincing statistics and attractive graphics hope to bring to life their strong argument about the effectiveness of employee referrals for companies looking to recruit the best candidates.
However, implementing a successful employee referral program requires hard work and dedication. Making sure current employees would be happy to recommend their company is a first step. For example, internal staff surveys or exit surveys for employees leaving could help with this. They then suggest that existing employees should share their experience of working for their company and its culture via social media platforms. For example, this could involve sharing photos from corporate events or sharing company news on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
RolePoint surprisingly state that monetary rewards are not the best incentive for staff to get involved in generating referrals. Instead RolePoint said in their latest infographic that "Employees ranked public recognition as the #1 incentive that would motivate them to refer someone". Currently 80% of companies with employee referral programs have non-cash rewards to incentivize staff. Using a research software package is a great way of comprehensively organizing a corporate recruitment program that includes employee referrals.
Another interesting statistic mentioned in RolePoint’s latest inforgraphic is that companies with a defined employer brand tend to dominate 60% of the labor market. Generally, they attract the best quality of candidates as they have a more appealing brand.
