After a long wait and fight, Companies haves given importance to the Employee referral program. Thanks to all the people who have been asking for it, in the private and public meetings. And thanks to the management for acting on it and giving this opportunity. It is one of the employee benefits, where employees has got the right to refer and bring in their own people in to the company. It is also the responsibility to we people to make sure that we bring in the right candidate for the interview. The opportunity that we have now needs to
be utilized properly that the culture of getting employees from vendors and the culture of making us just statues in the field should be totally eliminated. This is one such opportunity that we needs to prove that we could bring right candidates through referral programs. If we remember we have been asking this question on why employee referral programs are not working in many forums. This would certainly help Company in many ways. It would bring in a culture within the organization where employees feels happy to work with the people they know well. It also brings the opportunity to our employees to bring in their family members, which would in return gives a great satisfaction and would reduce attrition. Employees also benefits with the employee referral bonus, which was going to some external employee suppliers. And we were forced to work with people who we do not know. This program should be a great success and hence we get opportunity to work with our close ones. It is not just the we people the company also is benefited if the program becomes successful. First of all we get people with good quality who we would not have to do background verification because it’s been referred by one of our employee itself. Company reduce the cost of finding a person and also reduces the risk of depending on a third party vendor, who is just interested in the count and not the quality. Attrition rate goes down because of the satisfaction and the close bounding between the people within the organization.
It is not our right to refer our friends to our company, which we should be enjoying when the opportunity is given to us. It is also a prestigious feeling that we also have a role to play in the recruitment process of the company that we work . I think we should all support this initiative that the management has taken now to make sure that the management continue this initiative throughout.
