Try a little flattery. Send out an email that reminds them of their first day with the company and ask if there’s anyone who might welcome a job offer.

Make sure they understand the process. Many employees don’t refer their friends or family because they don’t know what will happen next. Give a quick explanation about what happens when they give a referral.

Give them some face time. If you’re in the same location as your employees, ask them into your office for a cup of coffee and walk them through the process.

Encourage their honesty. You want employee ambassadors, not employee liars. Explain to your colleagues they can be honest about what’s great about the hiring process and the company…and what’s not so great.

Ask around. Your employees know their jobs better than you do. What do they know now about their job that they didn’t notice when they took it? A

 Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Your job ad needs a headline and as cheesy as it sounds, those old newspapers knew how to catch attention! The average attention span is now only 8 seconds long

Bennies and the Jets. Okay, there are probably no jets in your organization but you probably DO have benefits you didn’t even know you had. Do a little research to learn what you can offer your candidates.
