Gamified & fun experience for employees

Live leaderboards, raffles, reward shops, confetti and prizes makes referral jam campaigns interactive and engaging for employees.

From household names to niche players, we're trusted with talent.

We were more reliant on agency recruitment than we’d like. We needed a platform to help us engage employees with referrals. Within the first 12 weeks of using Real Links, we’d already seen more referrals hires than the entirety of the previous year which is astronomical.
