Referral recruitment

Imagine this: your organisation has an open marketing job vacancy, and yesterday you heard that your neighbour’s son has graduated from his Marketing Bachelor's. Would you recommend him? To help your organisation, to make him your colleague and - last but not least- receive a nice reward?

Referral Recruitment

Why should you use Referral Recruitment? Because it’s the basis for a lower cost per hire and a higher quality per hire. Referral Recruitment offers the solution.

What is it?

Referral recruitment, recruiting through your own employees and contacts is a well proven method. More and more businesses and recruitment and selection agencies make use of this form of recruitment, which in fact has always existed. OTYS Referral Recruitment is a platform developed to make sure employees use their network too for finding new colleagues. It is based on gamification and using incentives. 

Why would you use referral recruitment?

  1. Your employees know your business culture and they know the potential candidate. They are the best to judge whether someone would fit into your organisation!
  2. Since every employee becomes a recruiter by using Referral Recruitment, you expand the reach of the vacancy and will find suitable candidates faster.
  3. Research shows that employees who are hired through referral recruitment often stay longer in the job. They click faster with the company and take less time to feel at home.
  4. Recommendations from your own employees will be worth more for your employer branding than any marketing action!

Why would you not use referral recruitment?

  • My employees/colleagues are not proud of the organisation
  • I don’t want candidates that are anything like my current employees
  • I don’t like giving my employees gifts for their efforts
  • I don’t mind paying a lot for new candidates
  • I prefer to go for the low-hanging - sometimes rotten - fruit instead of finding the best candidate for the job.

Do all - or some - of these points sound familiar? Reset your brain and try using referral recruitment. It's a guaranteed success!
