''Employers search: Are employee referrals effective?''
( 2019, Vol. 39 No.4 )
This is the first study that utilizes the unplanned delay in recruitment to identify the effectiveness of employee referrals in firms' recruiting processes. I find that the use of referrals reduces the probability of delays in recruitment and the duration of the delay in the case that the firm chooses a small number of parallel search strategies. Therefore, employee referrals do have a beneficial effect on the recruiting process if they are used solely or in addition to very few other search strategies.
Keywords: employers' recruitment behaviour, employee referrals, delay in recruitment
