Here is how you manage your internal referral program

TalendroneCandidateReferralSoftware

 

Before starting to manage your internal referral program you would need to understand why referrals are most effective way to hire people?

Referrals are the most cost-efficient and quickest way to find and retain “right talent for your company”.  By correctly understanding the real definition of Talent you would understand that performance of a particular person with one company could be different to that same person’s performance in other company. If you have an engaged and effective workforce, then there is a huge benefit in encouraging and rewarding employees to recommend people they think will fit into your culture.

Here are a few things you should do to help make your internal recruitment drive a success:

  • Capture it - You need to make sure your referral software captures skills of all your employees. This is a must for all large organisations but very effective for SMEs as well. Thi helps you market your requirements in a right way without SPAMing all your employees for every ob opportunity you have.
  • Plan it - You would see many companies offering just £250 pounds to their employees for referring somebody and at the same time paying 15% commission to the recruitment agencies to source candidates from the market.  You need to evaluate your cost of recruitment and make sure that the referral money is reasonable for your employees to buy in o your program. Make your programme as professional as other elements in your company. Invest in the promotion, education and maintenance and include senior managers as participants, sponsors and promoters.
  • Market it – Automate internal skill based referral sourcing. Ease of referring employee matters a lot. Promote your referral scheme aggressively so employees don’t think it’s just another company initiative that has no impact on them. Market referral success stories. If they see and hear the benefits, they will be more likely to get involved.

Talendrone is world’s most advanced candidate referral platform. You can seek employee referrals effectively through our referral platform and in addition to efficiently receiving employee referrals you would also receive quality referrals from thousands of independent specialist recruiters and thousands of similarly skilled people on our database, all this for just £200/Month.

4 ways to boost referrals from your employees

talendrone

 

Employee referrals have rapidly become one of the most valuable ways of gaining quality talent for companies, with an influx of employee referral programs being introduced within the workplace. The benefits of an employee referral program can include:

  • A referred candidate is more likely to be a quality hire
  • A referred candidate may not be actively seeking a new role, so may be elusive talent
  • A referred candidate is usually faster to hire than a traditional candidate
  • A referred candidate is cheaper to hire than a traditional candidate
  • A referred candidate dropout rate is miniscule

But sometimes actually gaining these referrals from employees can be the tricky part. If the quantity of employee referrals being made are a bit disappointing to say the least, it is likely there is good reason behind it. Here’s how to boost those referrals and encourage your employees to get involved in your company’s recruitment process.

  1. Ensure that referring is an easy process

It’s no use having a referral program if the process is difficult, complicated or confusing. Your colleagues are busy individuals, so making a referral needs to be as straightforward and as quick as can be. Make sure the instructions for referring are clear, bullet-pointed and are easy to find. If referrals are submitted online or using software, ensure that the user-journey flows and is simple to follow. Use latest developments in technology to get referrals from your employee’s secondary contacts.

  1. Market your referral program

One of the easiest ways to miss out on those referrals is by having a referral program that nobody knows about. Ensure that everyone in the office is aware of the program and how it works by all means possible. This can include putting up posters around the office, mentioning the program in email newsletters (along with success stories and rewards) and mentioning relevant positions in meetings to name just a few methods of getting the word out. Use candidate referral platforms which use latest technology to reach maximum candidates with similar skills.

  1. Ensure that employees are positive ambassadors of the company

Employees simply aren’t going to recommend their company to a friend if they are unhappy working there themselves. Making the workplace a happy and positive environment needs to be a priority, especially if there seems to be an issue. As well as missing out on talented referrals from colleagues, a negative workplace environment poses much more serious issues such as an uninspired and unmotivated workforce and a lower rate of employee retention.

  1. Offer competitive rewards and recognition

One of the main perks of an employee referral program is that those who successfully refer someone gain a promising reward. Many companies offer financial rewards, or even experiences, such as a short trip or an exciting activity, but it’s also important to thank and recognize the employee’s success more publicly. This can be via an email newsletter, or a mention in a meeting for example and is bound to make the employee feel more appreciated and will encourage the rest of the team to make their own referrals.

Would you trust a computer algorithm to select your IT staff?

online recruitment

 

With recruitment firms using complicated algorithms to help in the recruitment process how confident can potential employers be in the accuracy and efficiency of these technological advances?

Online recruitment companies are increasingly using computer algorithms more in candidate recruitment. The algorithms are complex instructions telling a computer program exactly what to look for in a candidate’s job application, which are ideal candidates and which should be disqualified from a search.

With the increasing numbers of potential candidates available online, an automatic process to sort out the less suitable candidates has the potential to save recruiting employers time and money. Using the data-crunching power of computers, online recruitment companies are able to offer employers shortlists of quality candidates. Saving you hours of work slogging through applications from unsuitable or unqualified candidates.

IT and programme managers need to be able to identify and select IT staff quickly and efficiently. Using an online recruitment firm – such as Talendrone – who uses an algorithm can be a great way to get quality IT staff on a project quickly and efficiently. Talendrone has invested over four years and considerable financial investment in researching and developing its unique algorithm and we’ve developed our own advanced method of algorithmic design and analysis to help identify quality candidates for our customers.

Using an algorithm removes subjective bias from the early stages of the recruiting process. But how do you assess those all-important interpersonal skills? Once candidates have been identified and selected for specific roles they still need to go through the hiring process (there are very few employers who will employ anyone without a face to face meeting), so interpersonal skills can be assessed at a later face-to-face stage in the hiring process. This has the advantage of reducing the chances of missing out on a good candidate due to any conscious or unconscious bias on behalf of the recruiter.

As in other industries, algorithmic candidate selection will have a major part in the future of recruiting. Providing an effective and engaging employment process for candidates and recruiters. So what does the future hold? Many think that algorithmic technology will follow a similar route into recruitment as it took into marketing some years ago. Where sales and marketing staff use the technology to reduce the more mundane aspects of their role leaving them free to make sales.

If you’re tempted by the idea of a talent selection algorithm and want to establish a modern hiring process, signing up to Talendrone to recruit your IT staff might be the right solution for you and your business. Talendrone’s recruitment service streamlines and shortens your time-to-hire, plus improving your quality of hire by facilitating an efficient screening process.

So if you are looking to recruit IT staff for your organisation or project, look no further than Talendrone. By signing up for a free Employer account on Talendrone you’ll save money and benefit from an easy, quick recruitment process. Using Talendrone can improve both your time-to-hire and cost-per-hire per vacancy.

Our online recruitment portal uses the power of specialist recruiters and our sophisticated software allows us to screen and vet all candidates before they are matched to your job vacancy so you only receive quality candidates for your vacancies.

How to write effective online job adverts – By Talendrone

Talendrone_freelance_recruitment

 

With over 3 billion* internet users worldwide, online recruiting services mean it has never been easier to get your job vacancy seen by thousands of job seekers.  One of the key advantages of advertising job vacancies online is the efficiencies that can be achieved over more traditional recruitment methods. But to make the most of these efficiencies you need to make sure your online adverts engage with the audience you are targeting. You don’t want to be sifting through masses of inappropriate responses.

*www.internetworldstats.com  June 2016

A well written job posting will:

  • Inform and attract candidates with relevant talent and skills.
  • Discourage candidates without the necessary skills or experience.
  • Reduce applications that waste your time processing.
  • Increase the efficiency of your recruitment process.
  • Promote your company’s brand.
  • Take care of team’s diversit

 

So where do you start?

Think about who you are targeting

Firstly you need to have a clear picture of your ideal candidate. What skills or talent and experience do they need to have. If there are specific qualifications needed spell them out and avoid phrases like professional and flexible.

Once you have a target audience in mind you can use the information to set out

  • the three most important essential requirements they need to have.
  • The three most important desirable requirements that might make a candidate stand out.

If you already have staff carrying out the role, ask them what would attract them to a job advert. Research online to find existing ads that you can use as a template.

Include keywords to optimise search results

If you are posting on job boards remember they work on relevant keywords so think carefully about what search terms job seekers are likely to be searching for and make sure the relevant keywords are included in your advert.

Avoid vague or misleading job titles

The more specific you can be and include the main keywords in your job title the better the match will be with the job seekers search terms. Make sure you don’t use phrases and titles that are internal to your company, you need to be using easily recognisable titles and descriptions that your target jobseekers will be searching for.

Try inserting skills and keywords or repeating the job title in the body of the advert text to increase the ‘ranking’ of your advert.

Think about the content of your ad

Include:

  • An overview of the role
  • Use bullet points – they are easier to read.
  • A potential candidate should be able to see what their day to day duties and responsibilities would be.
  • List the most important responsibilities and duties first.
  • List the qualifications, skills, experience your ideal candidate needs to have. Again use bullet points and list them in order of importance.
  • Make sure you include details of the exact location of the role.
Promote your brand

Provide a concise overview of the company and why someone would want to work for you. Include information on the culture within the company so people can decide if they would easily fit into the company.

Salary and benefits

Where possible include details of the salary and any additional benefits. Job seekers are less likely to go for ads with no salary details. If you can’t be precise then include a salary range. Don’t forget to also include details of any other benefits such as pension schemes, bonuses, holiday entitlement, insurance, working hours etc.

Make sure it’s legal

It is your responsibility to make sure your job advert is free from any form of discrimination. If you are not sure what is allowed, then get professional advice. In the UK the Equality Act 2010 [insert link to https://www.gov.uk/guidance/equality-act-2010-guidance] protects people from discrimination. When writing your job advert you need to think about age, disability, gender, race, religion just to name a few protected characteristics.

Clear and simple call to action

Make sure you have one simple call to action. You should make it as easy as possible for jobseekers to apply for your vacancy. Either provide an email address for candidates to submit their application to or provide a telephone number if you’d prefer them to call you.

Be clear and concise

Be clear and concise. Avoid jargon where possible. Use bullet points and short paragraphs to make the text easier to read. Don’t just copy and paste job descriptions.

Using Talendrone as your online recruitment portal

There are many benefits to using Talendrone as your online recruitment agency. They include:

  • We post your job vacancy on hundreds of top UK job boards
