Employee Referrals Portal

Employee referrals are a very valuable tool for many companies so we have made a lot of improvements to our employee referrals portal making it better and easier than ever to use. The main changes are listed here.

  • Automated referral job creation – You will no longer need to create a ‘referral campaign’ – all jobs that are published will automatically be open to referrals.
  • Domain email log in for employees – You can now send an email to all employees asking them to help you hire by using just their email address to sign in. You do not need to add employees manually if you use this option.
  • Default reward setting – You do not need to set a customised reward for each job but can instead use default referral rewards. If you would like a specific reward for a job you can still do so. 

New dashboard for employees: Referring people you know for jobs at your company is now really easy. From your dashboard you get all the information on existing referrals and a full listing of jobs that you can share on social media or add a friend for.
