Employee Referrals and Social Media Recruiting Highlights

Expand your reach

Employee referrals save you time and money and passive candidates are often the most highly desirable ones. Newton’s employee referral tools allow employees to broadcast job openings to their personal networks on Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter all from their mobile phone without having to download a special app.

Gamify hiring

The hallmark of a successful employee referral program is engagement. With Newton, a social recruiting tool can be fun! Employees earn points when referrals apply and when they are hired. Your team earns points and recognition with a leaderboard. Set your own point system, attach rewards to specific jobs, and see your hiring rate skyrocket.

Endorse referrals privately

When referrals apply the original referral source can vouch for applicants and the response will be securely stored in Newton so that only approved members of your HR team can review it privately. Providing your team context behind the referral saves teams time and energy when interviewing employee referrals.
