Tracking Employee Referrals; A CareerXroads Survey

While it likely doesn’t surprise anyone that nearly 90% of our current CareerXroads members that responded to this “Pulse” survey report to track employee referrals as a source of hire, it could come as news that a large portion of enterprise-sized organizations still leave it up to the candidate to identify themselves as a referral. Nearly 40% of respondents report that referral candidates select “employee referral” from a menu option when applying and are subsequently asked to name the referring employee.
