One Simple Idea for Finding Talented Job Candidates

In other words, reward your staff for the simple act of getting job candidates in the door.

Your employees are far more likely to refer candidates if they know they’ll be recognized for merely the referral — as opposed to the eventual job placement.

Rob Catalano, senior director of marketing at Achievers, a $25-million-in-funding startup, told Inc: “One of the problems with referral programs is that you reward someone once [the new hire is] in seat for six months and it’s not very motivating.

“Even with initial rewards, [incentivizing only the referral] is still lower cost than any other activity we’ve done.”
