Kevin Stakelum, Staffing Manager at Microsoft asks, over on LinkedIn:
Are Employee Referrals really better?
Hello all,
From what I have read, it is generally accepted that referrals are a great source of candidates, and in many cases they are claimed to be better than any other source. "Conventional Wisdom" supports this claim. However, when I look at the hiring percentage of referrals, I find that they are hired at the same percentage as other sources of hires. It seems that if this were a "better" source of hires, the hiring percentage would be higher...What are your thoughts on this topic? Are referrals really better? Thanks, Kevin
