What is the webinar about?

Employees are a company’s best ambassadors. After all, employees know your company best and can promote it to the right talent. This not only promotes the cultural fit of future hires but also decreases your retention rate. And although employee referrals are a well-known practice, there are many questions revolving around the topic:

  • What are the benefits of a digital employee referral program?
  • How do I implement a digital employee referral program successfully?
  • How does a digital employee referral program work?
  • and many more

During the webinar, Tim Herlan, CompanyMatch Account Director, and Arnim Wahls, CEO of Firstbird, will answer those and many more questions. Register now here!

Employee Referrals Benefits

Employee referral programs continue to be employers’ top source of hires. Here are some of the benefits:

  • Employee referrals save up to € 16,000 per hire
  • hire new employees in just 29 days
  • hire better performing employees that have a lower retention rate

However, currently most companies make use of manual employee referral programs, which come with a couple of major disadvantages:

  • missing transparency
  • no efficient communication
  • employee motivation low
  • difficult to manage

Firstbird has approached those issues by developing a digital platform that not only reduces the time effort but also generates more employee referrals with a higher degree of transparency.
