Yet, in recent years, a great number of companies are utilizing employee referral programs to find their staff. When using this technique, be certain your hiring managers are prepared, create thorough job descriptions, always keep your workers up to date on issues, reward those who use the referral program, and keep a constant relationship with your marketing team.

- 2Find a way, not necessarily monetary, that rewards employees that bring in great new hires.
