Employee Referral Programs

To assist in recruiting efforts, many employers offer an Employee Referral Program at their organizations with the intention of bringing in qualified, knowledgeable job candidates who are hand-picked by their current employees.

The idea behind employee referral programs is that candidates brought in this way will be better suited for the organization because the existing employees have already done the pre-screening work. Employees tend to carefully consider possible referrals because they feel accountable to both the organization and the person whom they are referring. This process saves the human resources department time and the organization money, and the employee knows both the company and the person he or she is referring, which typically leads to a good match for the employer and new employee.
