Island Health recognizes that one of the best ways to find new employees is through our own staff and people who are familiar with the organization and our staffing needs. This is why Island Health has the Employee Referral Program.
HOW IT WORKS
The Employee Referral Program (ERP) provides financial rewards to Island Health employees, volunteers and physicians who assist us in recruiting new staff.
When an applicant fills out their application profile on VI-HIRE they will need to indicate on the ‘referral source’ that it was an ‘employee referral’.
If hired, the applicant must tell hiring manager who the employee is that referred them to the job opportunity.
The hiring manager will then inform Human Resources so the referee will receive compensation.
Note: If the referred applicant is hired into an eligible position or accrues 500 hours in the case of a casual appointment, the financial reward is paid out subject to the program criteria.
