Real Links employee
referrals software

Turn your workforce into an unparalleled recruitment channel.

Quality referrals through auto-matching

Our unique matching technology automatically identifies potential candidates from employees' social networks matching them with your open roles based on skills, not relationships.

Employees become brand advocates

Amplify your employer brand message by turning employees into brand advocates, through simple, customisable content sharing.

Boost employee engagement

Automated communication across multiple channels; a rewards shop tailored to your employee's motivations and gamification to encourage competition between individuals and departments.

Supports diversity and inclusion

Auto-matching based on skills, not relationships; anonymised candidate data to remove unconscious bias; and dedicated campaigns with employee resourcing groups - all supported by detailed D&I analytics.

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.

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

Popular features

Reward shop and

Employees win points to use in a customisable reward shop based on employee insights. Leaderboards are used to drive competition between individuals and teams for engagement with referrals, driving long term participation.

Updates to Referrals

Employees and recruiters are updated on the status of referrals on the platform and through notifications. This addresses one of the key reasons employee engagement drops off, that there’s not enough transparency and referrals end up in a black hole.

Content sharing

Real Links’ dedicated customer success team will run focus groups with your employees at the outset to identify rewards that motivate them and we’ll build this into a rewards matrix based on your available budget.

Recruiter Sourcing Tool

Recruiters are able to use the platform as a sourcing tool by reviewing the talent pool of employees’ connections and requesting referrals from employees who are connected to them. All personal identifiers are removed to prevent any unconscious bias and make the platform completely GDPR compliant.
