Staffing Referrals, the leading automated referral management (ARM) solution for the staffing industry, is thrilled to announce that 25,000 referral candidates have now been placed into jobs using its platform.

Since launching, Staffing Referrals has generated more than 150,000 referral leads for its staffing agency partners, including Integrity Staffing Solutions, MyWorkChoice, and CrossMed Healthcare. The average placement rate for these leads is 16%, which is 16x higher than the 1% typically found on job boards.

“Referrals have always been a top source of high-quality candidates, but staffing agencies have struggled to scale their referral programs because they haven’t had the right tools,” said David Folwell, founder and CEO of Staffing Referrals. “Our software does all of the work, from promoting the agency’s referral program on an ongoing basis to tracking every lead that comes in all the way through the bonus payout. Staffing Referrals takes the burden of asking for and managing referrals off of recruiters’ plates so that they can focus on the highest-value work of placing candidates in jobs.”

The use of digital referral programs in the staffing industry is growing. Staffing Hub’s 2022 State of Staffing report found that fast-growth staffing firms are 88% more likely than slow-growth firms to use automated referral management.

“We believe that 25,000 placements is just scratching the surface of what's possible with referral automation,” Folwell noted. “With the digital transformation pushing staffing agencies to deliver better candidate experiences, we anticipate referral software will be table stakes within the next three years.”
