Simple, digital mapping of the employees-recruit-employees concept

Post jobs

Shortcut to top recommendations
thanks to efficient processes

Simply map your employees-recruit-employees campaign digitally. Inform employees automatically about new jobs and rewards. 

We generate 40 percent of our most important applicant group (consultants) through employee recommendations. The quality of applicants based on employee recommendations is much higher. Two thirds of applicants stay longer, have a low turnover rate and the hiring rate is also higher than for applicants who come via passive sourcing:"

Less effort due to automation

Your staff will be automatically notified via email about new jobs, successful recommendations, and recruitment rewards. Employees are involved in your company’s recruiting process and can recommend suitable candidates for your vacancies. 

Hirings based on recommendations are particularly successful

Studies show that employee recommendations result in a particularly close fit between companies and applicants. Employees gained through recommendations usually start their jobs much faster, onboard faster, and are therefore productive faster.

Recommend jobs with just a few clicks

Employees can easily share your job postings in their personal and social networks – while at the same time recommending you as an attractive employer. 

Greater reach and targeted recommendations via the personal channels of your employees


Recommendations made easy

Your employees share open jobs in their own network with just a few clicks – via social and business networks, messenger, email, or as a link. In this way, you spread your job advertisements without additional costs and gain additional reach. 

Recommendations create trust

80 per cent of people trust recommendations as a way of making contact with an employer. Many people believe that recommendations minimise the risk of making a mistake when choosing a job. 

Applications without detours

The referral manager creates a measurable applicant channel as well as a permeable recruitment process. 

We also evaluate the success of employee recommendations via softgarden. We therefore know how high the quality of employee recommendations is. Without the referral manager, we would never be able to recruit these people.”

Smooth recruiting process

Candidates who are made aware of one of your jobs, apply directly to the job posting in the recommendation link – also from mobile devices. Applications flow seamlessly into your already established recruiting processes. 

Reduce time-to-hire

The pre-selection by your employees not only creates free capacities, but also more effective job interviews, since candidates already have a reference through your employee.
