<p><strong>Washington, D.C. &mdash; March 26</strong><br />The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and H3.com, the first social commerce platform for recruiters to motivate their social networks to yield well-screened candidates, have announced that H3.com will sponsor HCI&#39;s Employee and Alumni Referral education and research track, one of several topics addressed in HCI&#39;s Talent Acquisition community of interest, a community HCI considers essential for organizations striving to build competitive advantage.<br /><br />Experts think 30 percent to 40 percent of all external hires should come from employee and alumni referral programs. </p><p>Although some organizations leverage their employees&#39; networks of friends and family for recruitment purposes, fewer organizations track and maintain relationships with select past employees who might be persuaded to return or at least refer others. As a result, employers are missing out on key sources of hire.<br /><br />&quot;Employee and alumni referrals are quality sources of hires that most organizations are not leveraging to the full extent,&quot; said Allan Schweyer, HCI president and executive director. &quot;H3.com&#39;s support enables us to provide human capital professionals with resources to help them implement programs that yield more high-caliber candidates.&quot;<br /><br />With increased referrals as an objective, HCI&#39;s track looks at examples of best programs, how they were set up, how they are maintained, success rates and innovative practices in this important area. A panel of expert advisers examines methods and emerging trends in employee and alumni referrals. </p><p>Webcasts, white papers, education and other resources provide human capital professionals with information to more effectively leverage employee and alumni referrals.<br /><br />&quot;We&#39;re pleased to support HCI&#39;s Employee and Alumni Referral education and research track in order to make more organizations aware of the power of referrals and to share best practice programs,&quot; said Hans Gieskes, H3.com CEO.</p>
