willbeHired Launches Employee Referral Platform to Help Customers Drive Employee Engagement

Employee Referral Platform designed to drive broader and deeper employee engagement through the use of game mechanics

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- willbeHired, a complete solution that dynamically facilitates and improves the recruiting and hiring process, today announced the launch of their employee referral platform, giving employers a better way to engage and motivate their employees to refer friends for open positions. The program was designed on willbeHired’s enterprise social platform to motivate employees to facilitate the recruitment of top talent.

“Employee referral programs are a source for the highest quality talent, and are cost-effective and proven to have better onboarding experiences and lower rates of attrition,” said Thor Culverhouse, CEO and co-founder at willbeHired. “Providing social referral tools can make it easier for employees to make referrals; however, what’s missing is a better incentive system to motivate employees to make those referrals.”

The willbeHired employee referral platform is designed to drive broader and deeper employee engagement through the use of game mechanics and a better reward system. When employees create a referral, they receive points that can be redeemed for cash and other prizes. Employees receive additional points if their referrals are qualified, interviewed, and ultimately hired. Successful referral hires improve an employees status, and enable them to special benefits such as guaranteed interviews for the people they refer.

“With the willbeHired Employee Referral Platform, employees gain better visibility into their referrals and can help expedite the time to hire,” said Andy Wright, Chief Product Officer at willbeHired. “Each employee gets a dashboard that shows them where their referrals are within the hiring process, and provides immediate and constructive feedback to improve future referrals.”

The Employee Referral Platform is natively integrated with the willbeHired recruitment platform and included in all current customer contracts. It is also available as a stand-alone platform that can be integrated with a company’s existing Applicant Tracking System to drive more referrals into those systems.
