Staffing Referrals Collaborates with Blackhawk Network to Automate Referral Reward Bonuses

Leading automated referral management (ARM) platform for staffing agencies now provides no-hassle referral bonuses via virtual gift cards

Staffing Referrals, the leading automated referral management (ARM) solution for the staffing industry, today announced a new collaboration with Blackhawk Network, which allows staffing agencies to automate the payout of referral reward bonuses through the Staffing Referrals platform.

Staffing Referrals helps staffing agencies get more referrals from their existing talent pool by automating the referral management process. The staffing software has proven to increase referrals for agencies by as much as 250%.

Blackhawk’s integrated rewards platform Rybbon enables companies to quickly and easily send a selection of virtual gift cards for recipients to choose from. The reward selection can include gift cards for many top brands across a variety of categories, including retail, travel, and food delivery; virtual prepaid cards; and e-donations to charities supporting cancer research, affordable housing, and wildlife and park preservation.

Through the integration, Staffing Referrals customers can automate the payout of referral reward bonuses so that brand ambassadors are always paid on time. This helps staffing agencies and their recruiters build and maintain trust with their talent network, resulting in even more referrals.

“Automating referral bonuses is the next step on our path to automating the entire referral process,” said David Folwell, president and CEO of Staffing Referrals. “We vetted multiple rewards suppliers and identified Blackhawk as the market leader because of its platform’s ease of use and enhanced tracking and automation.”

“For businesses that use Staffing Referrals, reward automation is important to streamlining their processes and building their networks,” said Jignesh Shah, Head of Global Integrated Incentives at Blackhawk Network. “The Rybbon integration makes automation simple while offering quick delivery of a wide range of delightful rewards.”
