Employee referrals are hands down the best candidates a company can get - they get hired faster, cost less to acquire, and stay on with your company longer (per JobVite). But with just 18% of new hires coming from referrals, and spiking fiscal year headcount goals, Guidewire needed a more attainable and sociable employee referral program to build excitement and referral volume amongst their global employee base.
In this Partner Success Story, learn how Bay Area “Best Place to Work” Guidewire partnered with Blueboard to execute an employee referral contest centered around exciting and shareable experiential reward incentives. Not only did employees love tracking what their colleagues chose from Blueboard’s extensive rewards catalog (improving overall office culture), daily employee referral volume during the contest period soared by 260%. And by contest end, Guidewire saw a 41% increase in their percentage of hires by referral.
