HR Happy Hour 166 - 'Can I get a referral?'
Pre-recorded on Thursday June 27, 2013
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, hosts Steve Boese and Trish McFarlane welcomed Ziv Eliraz, Founder and CEO of the social employee referral management platform Zao.com, to talk about the changing and evolving role ot technology to power and support employee referral programs.
While we ALL know that the employee referral is generally cited as the 'best' source of hire for external hiring, creating, managaing, and monitoring these programs has often been an administrative challenge, and keeping employees engaged in the process and program can also be a challenge.
Zao helps solve a few of these common challenges, and even if you are not thiking of automating your employee referral process, Ziv shared some ideas and best practices gained from their work with organizations all over the world.
Thanks to Ziv for the time and the insight about the role of technology to empower and extend the classic employee referral program.
