I know I've always wanted to receive a big cheque and pose for lots of photos. It would be funny but also a dream come true and I don't think I'm alone.
Recently one of our clients did just that, a little bit gimmicky but it worked to raise interest for their Employee Referral Program. Each quarter, staff were awarded a big cheque at drinks and while you think its gimmicky, it worked and was not shunned as an incentive.
In HR it can be tiring coming up with new ways to get staff to refer good talent to your company, try the cheque, try a social campaign but you have to keep reinventing the process to keep it fresh. If you need a comprehensive ERP 101 starter kit, look no further than here.
Employees who are involved in the recruitment process may feel a greater sense of purpose towards the future of your company.
