HR practitioners and researchers alike agree that employee referral programs are an excellent source-of-hire. Cost-effective, yet sporting a significant ROI, referral programs enable corporate recruiters to leverage their employees’ networks to reach quality talent pools. With a faster time-to-hire than average, referred applicants are recognized as more productive additions to the workforce.

The first impression a new hire has of a company is based on their experiences from the date they accept an offer to the first couple weeks of employment. New employment is a HUGE deal and often becomes the conversation starter for most individuals. How many times after you inform a close friend or family member about your new position did you hear, “How is your new job?” Most often, the answer to this question is formulated based a person’s experiences during the first few weeks of…Continue
