There is a strong case to be made today for utilizing employee referral programs to attract the right talent. According to Oxford Academic’s Quarterly Journal of Economics, referred applicants are more likely to be hired and more likely to accept offers than their non-referred counterparts who possess nearly identical skillsets. What’s more, employee referral programs produce significantly less cost-per-hire, drive up existing employee engagement, and increase retention long-term.

With such extensive research and positive evidence surrounding this hiring strategy, many organizations are still hesitant to invest in the infrastructure needed to make employee referral programs a robust resource.

In this eye-opening session, Claudine Trudeau will share her organization's approach to capitalizing on the employee referral programming strategy with tangible results and improvements in quality of hire, retention, and employee engagement. Claudine will outline the actionable steps needed to boost employee participation in referral programming including a strategic rollout of ERIN employee referral platform, the creative incentive structure and benefits strategy linked to the program, and overall practices that will drive referral volume to meet hiring demands.
