Referrals are consistently the best source for talent leads. Generally, referrals cost less to hire, perform better in the roles, and stay longer than external candidates. Companies that garner more referrals consistently hire better talent and outperform their competition.
Unlike the candidate quality by referrer report, which shows all candidates arranged by the user listed in the Who Gets Credit field, the referrals over time report will display all candidates whose source is Referral. The referrals over time report equips your organization with the data necessary to make actionable changes to how you prioritize referrals.
