Employee Referrals

Tap into the vast pools of talent within the social networks of your employees.

Why Avature Refer

A veritable gold mine of qualified candidates is at your fingertips, and all it requires is the right employee referral program to activate it. With Avature Refer, your employees can become effective and engaged recruiters who help you build your talent pools via their existing contacts.

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 ERP Portal

The Avature Refer portal gives your employees an easy-to-use base of operations from which they can view open positions, recommend their friends and track the status of their referrals throughout the application and hiring process.

Tailor To Your Business Needs

A successful employee referral program is not always the same for all organizations, and it may even differ between an organizationʼs business unit or region. All key elements of Avature Refer are fully customizable to fit your specific needs.

Our software features:

  • Referral workflows
  • Design, cadence and automation of email notifications
  • Information required from the referrer
  • Look and feel of your referral portal
  • Rewards system

Built-in Marketing and Segmentation

Create pools of your high-performing referrers or locate the passive talent that exists within your employeesʼ social networks. Then target these audiences with specific, automated email and SMS communications such as job alerts relating to referrerʼs location, their department or their referral activity (e.g. first-time referrers vs. top referrers). In addition to tapping your employeesʼ networks, you can also engage with the talent that exists in the networks of alumni, vendors, customers and other non-employees by allowing them to submit referrals, too.

Transparency as a Driver for Engagement

Drive adoption of your referral program with customizable levels of transparency. This allows your organization to choose the information you show to employees regarding the status of their referrals, such as “successfully interviewed” or “not a match”. Additionally, you can choose to auto-notify them via email of any meaningful advancement in the process, ensuring that your referrers are always up to date on their submissions.

Enhance your ERP with Gamification

Reward your employees based on the number of their referrals that the company hires, or create a scoring system with micro-rewards to recognize employees for smaller actions such as referring a certain number of candidates. Then publicize their score via email or referral leaderboards to showcase your top referrers and encourage other employees to increase their participation in the program.

Apart from submitting their contacts themselves, employees easily can 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 and recognized for their efforts.

Optimize the Referral Experience

Choose how referrals are approached after initial submission, such as triggering an email to the referral with an invitation to verify or upload their information, or immediately apply. The referrals will remain in your talent pools even if they decide not to follow through with the job application.

Real-time Reporting

Analyze response, participation, ROI, effectiveness and other relevant factors to periodically review the strategies and tactics being used and adjust direction quickly to fit your evolving needs.
