How should we reward employees who recommend new hires? — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
"Even as the local economy has tightened up, we're still hiring. But there's good news and bad news: because unemployment is high, we're getting lots of applications from unqualified people. I'd like to start an employee referral program to encourage our workers to recommend candidates. I hope that will give us a better quality applicant pool. How should I go about setting up such a program?"—Pete, Ala.
