Supporting your company’s recruiting efforts.

Is this something you believe in?

Or it HR’s “job”?

Many companies pay referral bonuses, and some may see it as part of your responsibility as a leader.

But then there’s the other side.

Are employees willing to put their reputation on the line?

Particularly, when they’re not really “all-in” with what’s happening internally.

They might see some shady stuff happening.

Or the new hires are coming to them voicing their concerns.

I often think we are on the fence regarding referring someone to work where we work, and what might go wrong.

Potentially putting a blemish on an existing relationship.

And that’s something no referral bonus will overcome.
