Why Avature Refer?

Tap into your workforce’s networks with a referral solution that empowers employees to recommend candidates.

From simply providing names or actively recruiting specialized talent, define the referral program that works for you. With Avature Refer, you can also incentivize participation by setting variable rewards based on your strategic needs.

Employees can sell your company in a very authentic way; they know about the jobs and the culture of the company and are truly ambassadors. So in addition to finding really high quality candidates in a good number through the Employer Referral Program, itʼs really strengthening our employer brand. People are talking to the outside world and weʼre leveraging every employee of Siemens to help us recruit.”

A Dedicated Employee Referral Site

The Avature Refer site gives your employees an easy-to-use hub from which they can view open positions, recommend their friends and track the status of their referrals throughout the application and hiring process. It also features job recommendations based on resumes, which is helpful if you know a great candidate but are unsure which positions to refer them for or where they would be the best fit.

Built-in Marketing and Segmentation

Create lists of your high-performing referrers and place referred candidates into specific talent pools that reflect your different recruiting needs. A robust AI algorithm automatically ranks candidates and identifies the best match for the job requirements, making it easier to target audiences with specific, tailored, automated email and SMS communications. You can also engage with talent outside your workforce from alums, vendors and customer networks by allowing them to submit referrals.

Transparency as a Driver for Engagement

Enhance your Referral Program with Gamification

Reward your employees based on the number of successful referrals, or create a scoring system with micro rewards to recognize employees for simpler actions such as the number of candidates referred. Then publicize the referral leaderboards to showcase your top referrers, encouraging 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. These links track the referral back to the originating referrer, operating under the concept of gamification, crediting employees for their efforts.

Optimize the Referral Experience

Customize your immediate response to employee referrals, choose to trigger a verification email, a request for information or an invitation to apply. Employee referrals will then remain in your talent pools even if the candidates decide not to proceed with the job application.
