Harness the power of referrals with ReferU

ReferU, a brand new, Cape Town-based, employee referral platform, is innovating recruitment by harnessing the power of employee referrals. The online platform streamlines the employee referral process and makes it easier and quicker for everyone involved. By automating and streamlining the referral process, ReferU allows businesses to increase the number of referrals they receive from their staff as well as reduce the cost and time of hiring.
So how does the platform work?

HR and the hiring manager can quickly create a new job ad and with a click of a button distribute it to their staff for them to share to their personal networks. The company’s staff get an email notifying them of the new vacancy and, through ReferU, can very quickly share the job ad to their personal networks via LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, email and even WhatsApp. This streamlined process means the job ad is more actively shared than traditional referral programs and this results in a broader reach and ultimately more referrals.

Once the company’s staff have shared the job ad, their peers and contacts apply directly to them. Referrers then rate and review applicants with ReferU’s innovative candidate rating system. When creating a new job ad, HR and the hiring managers can set critical skills for the vacancy and referrers rate the candidate on each of these predefined skills. Candidates are then given a 5-star rating before being referred to HR and the hiring manager, making it quick and easy to view the top talent at a glance.

In addition, ReferU offers a lite applicant tracking system as well as a fully automated employee referral platform. Best of all the company only pays for a successfully placed candidate and ReferU pays all the referral fees. Companies can either stipulate a specific referral fee for a role or opt for the out-the-box ReferU referral fee structure, but either way, ReferU pays the referrer.
