3 Reasons Why You Should Prioritize Candidate Referrals

Hiring can be a tricky, expensive process that can either have great results or disastrous results for your company. Whenever possible, try to prioritize candidate referrals over any other type of applicant – here’s why.

1. Rely on Other People’s Experiences-

The great thing about relying on candidate referrals is that other people have already done the pre-vetting for you. When someone is referred to you, that person is putting their reputation on the line for doing so. This increases your chance of securing a high-quality candidate.

2. Accurate Character References –

When someone is referred, you can rest easy knowing that their character references are more accurate. It’s one thing for a candidate to refer to himself or herself as being responsible and timely; it’s another thing for a former employer to confirm that an employee actually is responsible and timely.

3. Less Costly to Do So-

It’s expensive to hire candidates, especially if they don’t work out for your company in the long run. When someone is referred to you, it’s safer to assume that they are looking for a long-term position and will be a “good hire.” By eliminating individuals who are only looking for short-term gain, you will ultimately find yourself saving money.
