More than any time in our history, people are on the move. You don’t walk down the street or down the hallway at work without seeing someone on their mobile phone. From looking at social sites to texting to taking pictures, people just can’t live without their phones. As companies incorporate mobile into many of their approaches, one great use comes to mind- employee referrals.
Whether they know it or not, your employees are meant to assist you in the recruitment process. After all, they’re the ones who are going to be working with new team members; it only makes sense if they are in the recruitment trenches with you. However, what happens when your employees are on-the-go or don’t work in-house? What’s the best way to streamline the referral process? By using mobile!
