The Modern Way to Source Top Talent: How Recruitopia’s Referral Hub Finds the Best Candidates

The Challenges of Sourcing Great Candidates in Today’s Market

Finding high-quality candidates is harder than ever these days, but Recruitopia’s Referral Hub has a solution. Our referral network taps into the hidden job market, sourcing candidates that traditional methods often miss.

The Challenges of Sourcing Great Candidates in Today’s Market

With record low unemployment rates, the war for talent is real. The most sought-after candidates aren’t browsing job boards or responding to cold calls from recruiters. They’re too busy getting their work done.

Referral programs have proven to be the most effective way to find these passive candidates. According to recent research, referred candidates are 3-4 times more likely to be hired and have a 40% higher retention rate in their first year. They get hired faster and ramp up quicker because they come pre-vetted by a current employee.

  • Active candidates only make up about 20% of the workforce. The other 80% are passive candidates happily working at their current jobs. These are the candidates you really want to reach.
  • Job boards and recruiters often attract lower quality candidates. The best candidates aren’t actively looking or responding to messages from strangers.
  • It’s difficult to assess soft skills and cultural fit from a resume alone. Referrals help address this, as the referring employee can vouch for the candidate.
  • Referral bonuses and rewards motivate your team to tap into their networks on your behalf. Their connections become your connections.

With Recruitopia’s Referral Hub, you get access to a whole network of passive candidates that would otherwise be out of your reach. The future of recruiting is all about relationships – let us help you build them.

How Recruitopia’s Referral Hub Works to Source Candidates the Modern Way

Recruitopia’s Referral Hub is the modern way to source top talent. How does it work? It’s simple.

Referrals from your employees and networks

Your own employees and professional networks are often the best sources for finding great candidates. Referral Hub makes it easy for them to recommend people they know are a good fit.

  • Employees and contacts simply log into Referral Hub and enter details about candidates they want to refer.
  • The system automatically notifies the candidates, letting them know they’ve been referred by someone in your network.
  • Interested candidates can then easily apply for positions they’re interested in.

Referrals from social networks

Referral Hub integrates with major social networks like LinkedIn so your employees and networks can also refer people they’re connected with online. Again, the system notifies the candidates and makes it simple for them to apply.

Referrals from past applicants

Referral Hub remembers qualified candidates who have applied to your company before. Your employees and networks can refer these reapplicants with just a click. Since these candidates have applied before, the system already has their information on file, streamlining the process.

Using referrals, Recruitopia’s Referral Hub taps into networks of potential candidates who are more likely to be a great fit for your organisation. The modern way to find top talent? Referral Hub.

The Benefits of Using Referrals to Find Qualified Candidates

The Benefits of Using Referrals to Find Qualified Candidates

Using referrals is one of the best ways to find high-quality candidates for your open roles. Referrals tap into existing networks of connections to uncover candidates who may not even be actively on the job market.

  • Higher quality candidates. Referrals often lead to candidates who are a great culture and skills fit. Their referrer already knows the demands of the role and the values of your organisation. They wouldn’t refer someone who wouldn’t thrive in that environment.
  • Faster hiring. Because referrals come recommended, they often move faster through the hiring process. You already have insight into the candidate from the referrer, so less time is needed to evaluate qualifications and potential fit.
  • Improved retention. Referred candidates tend to have higher retention rates. Since they were referred by someone already in your network, they have a built-in connection to the organisation. They also have a better sense of the role and company culture before they even start, leading to fewer surprises and a higher likelihood they’ll stay longer.
  • Increased employee engagement. Having a referral program boosts employee engagement and satisfaction. Your employees feel valued that their opinions and networks matter in finding great new talent. And when their referrals get hired, they have an instant connection and may even serve as an informal mentor.

Using your employees’ connections and networks is a win-win. You gain access to high-quality candidates who become top talent, and your employees feel more invested in the hiring process and growth of the company. Through the power of referral networks, it’s a great way to keep sourcing the best.

This guarantees you’ll receive a highly curated list of the best-fit individuals for the job.

Recruitopia’s Role

Our account managers thoroughly screen each candidate submission to evaluate their potential fit for the role. We look at factors like:

  • Relevant skills, experience, and education. Do they have the hard skills to excel in the job?
  • Motivation and enthusiasm. Are they passionate about the type of work?
  • Growth potential. Will they be able to take on more responsibility over time?

Our clients can feel confident that anyone they interview from our shortlist will be a great addition to their team.

Through our rigorous selection process, we filter out unqualified candidates and only recommend those with true potential for the position. Quality over quantity is our guiding principle to find the best talent for your team.
