Company News for August 2010
by: Karen Cayamanda
MicroRefer.com, the official referral portal of MicroSourcing, was officially launched last August 26-27, facilitated by the Sourcing and Marketing Team of the Manpower Acquisition Department.
MicroRefer.com is an effective recruitment tool to reach suitable candidates for MicroSourcing clients. In fact, more than 52 percent of the company’s successful candidates come from employee referrals.
Sourcing and Marketing Specialists Mafel Silva, Mikhail Hauptman, together with Recruitment Specialist Elaine Cruz facilitated the orientation to all employees. To be a recruiter, an employee must register at microrefer.com and start adding and inviting contacts. He/She will be able to view the list of referrals submitted and total referral incentives earned.
“MicroRefer aims to bring in people that no other source of application, if partially, can supply: the quality understood by our employees as needed by the business. We are best aware of what we require from each one of us better than a five-liner from our advertisements. We are also aware of what kind of people we want to work with, and referring can help us achieve these. This is going to be a fantastic initiative as we also get to pay our affiliates for using the tool. You refer, we pay you; we get a much larger, fun, and profitable environment,” said Mr. Hauptman. He added that the department is planning to organize a recruitment party wherein employees can bring in their friends and let them know how MicroSourcing values and recognizes hard work and dedication of its employees.
