Referral Bonus Survey


Our third annual referral bonus survey shows that 59 percent of the 458 responding companies have a referral bonus, and an additional 14 percent of those without are considering implementing one. Of note in this year’s survey is the amount of money being awarded to employees who recruit new talent. 

Survey Results

The largest group of companies reported awarding between $1,000 and $4,999 to an employee for referring someone who is hired. Ten percent of companies pay a bonus of $5,000 or more to an employee who refers an executive to the company.
