How can you get the most of your professional network when hiring? The answer is employee referrals.
In a recent blog post by Heather Huhman for BusinessInsider.com, she busted a few of the myths of employee referrals. In the piece, she reminds readers that employee referrals provide better workers, as well as loyal employees who stay with the company longer than the average outside hire.
The sad thing is that despite evidence employee referrals are a powerful recruitment tool, many organizations remain skeptical.
If these companies can only see referrals in a new light, they will not only gain more candidates, but also a wider range of quality candidates from which to choose.
