ERIN App is a smart employee referral software which allows employees to easily source the highest quality candidates for their employers as quickly as possible. Referrals are a great way for hiring teams to increase the number of applicants, hire more quickly, and increase the tenure of those hires. Referrals are also the ideal way to reduce recruitment costs by turning your employees into an insourced recruiting team.
