My column this month on Fast Company/Inc’s Hiring center is Breathing Life into Your Employee Referral Program. You can’t leave comments there, but please do leave comments here.
If you have a working and useful employee referral program, please do comment, especially if you take other actions than the ones I suggested. Most of the employee referral programs I see are “too little too late” for employees to take the time and deal with the paperwork. It’s too bad, because your employees can be a fantastic source of hires.
