What is an employee referral form?
There are many ways to employ new people for a job. Hiring processes include job finder sites, social media posts, or even newspapers. Usually, candidates will apply themselves with application forms (which you can create by using forms.app, by the way) and be involved with the company’s human relations departments. Another very effective way is referrals. Sometimes, not seldom, an employee might refer a person to a position. These are done with the help of employee referral forms. forms.app has an employee referral form template ready to use to help you.
Referral forms, filled by an employee currently working for the company, will have employees fill in information about themselves. This is to confirm that the said employee is in a position to refer a candidate. After that, referred candidates' information will be given. Submitting an employee referral form means that the employee is more or less guaranteeing that the candidate is fit for the job.
