Alumni and referrals are the #1 and #3 sources of quality hires
An engaged alumni network gives you direct access to boomerang hires and boosts your referral rate. Our clients save money on recruitment fees by hiring directly from their alumni networks, and those hires then have a much shorter time to productivity.
Rehire Departed Talent
The idea of a job for life is over: all businesses must accept that their most talented employees will probably leave at some point. However, an alumni network allows you to hire them back when a suitable role arises. A well-designed alumni program can generate as many as 17% of all new hires (at Sodexo it’s 20%!) and Boomerang hires see a 44% higher retention rate over 3 years than stranger-hires
Save on Recruitment Fees
Stranger-hires can be costly and time-consuming. When you’re hiring large numbers of people, the fees can add up and you have no guarantee that they’ll actually be the best person for the job. Our search tools let you use your alumni network to find talent with exactly the skills you need, exactly when you need them, without paying a headhunter. One customer saves up to $75,000 on each senior hire when they recruit from their alumni
Active Job-Seeker Community
79% of corporate alumni would return to their former employee given the chance. And 88% of alumni network members would recommend a friend for a job there.
Don’t wait for candidates to come to you. Alumni are actively looking for opportunities to reconnect with your company, and our platform ensures they know about the roles you have available.
