Webinar: ID# 1023429
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Are you looking for an easy and effective way to find the best talent for your organization?

Look no further than your current employees. An advanced employee referral program produces the highest volume, the best quality and the fastest hires, making current employees the most effective approach to finding top talent. In fact, a recent BLR survey found that employee referral was the number one most successful method used to recruit new hires.

The main reason why employee referrals are so effective is because employees are your organization’s best advocates. They excel at approaching individuals and convincing them to consider your firm. And considering that referring employees’ reputations are on the line, they are not likely to recommend someone who won’t be a great addition.

You may be thinking, “how much will this cost us in referral bonuses?” The truth is, a lot less than an agency fee or several postings. Besides, only 11% of employees make referrals to earn a bonus. More often than not, they will make referrals for the “benefit of the team,” which says a lot about an organization!

Join us for an impactful webinar on how to create the best and most effective employee referral program. Sought-after speaker Dr. John Sullivan will discuss ways to motivate employees to make referrals, success factors for the best referral programs, and even how to get referrals from non-employees. This is a must-attend webinar for anyone looking to grow a team with the best people.
