Reward your employees based on the number of successful referrals, or create a scoring system with micro-rewards to recognize employees for smaller actions such as the number of candidates referred. Then publicize their score referral leaderboards to showcase your top referrers and encourage other employees to participate in the program.

Enable employees to easily share links to specific jobs via email, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter to encourage viralization through social sharing. In the spirit of gamification, these links track the referral back to the original referrer, so employees are credited for their efforts.
