The employee referral program, operating in Sii since 2010, is currently the source of more than 30% of employment in the company. Recently, it has been extended to back office positions. Some of the rewards, as well as the period of validity of the recommendation have also been changed.
In the new version of the “Recommend a Friend to Sii” program, both Sii employees and people from outside the company can recommend friends to work in the e.g. Sales, Recruitment, HR, Administration or Accounting departments. For hiring or starting cooperation with a recommended person from the back office area, you will get a bonus of up to 4 000 PLN, and up to 8 000 PLN in the case of priority recruitment needs. The rewards correspond to the sums valid for the recommendations for technical roles from IT and engineering area. The bonuses are paid when cooperation or employment is reached within a maximum of 12 months from the date of the recommendation.
The growing role of recommendations
Currently, one third of newly employed people in Sii come from the referral program. The company receives the most recommendations from the employees. They act as ambassadors – they are the best and most reliable source of information about the work atmosphere and development opportunities at Sii.
– I sent CVs of friends who were looking for a job and who in my opinion had appropriate predispositions to the currently open roles. People recommended by me attach great importance to development, self-fulfillment and want to have employer supporting them in this area. The number of courses available in Sii within weekends trainings is a big plus for those who want to stay in IT and are not afraid of investing in themselves – says Łukasz Formela, Test Technician, thanks to whom in the last year four people started working in Sii Gdansk.
Friends can be recommended for specific roles or without choosing any job offer. To take part in the program you just need to fulfill a form at the company’s website. After receiving an application, the Recruitment Department contacts with both recommending and recommended person for further steps related to the recommendation.
