Recipe overview

Referral bonuses have become a popular tool with companies looking to hire top talent. Not only do they help widen the total candidate pool, it’s estimated that referred hires stay 70% longer than their non-referred counterparts.

But to ensure that a new hire is truly a good fit, companies typically wait between 30-180 days before paying out any referral bonuses—employing manual calendar reminders to help them keep track of when payments are due and to whom.

With this Recipe, you can ditch the calendar reminders and spreadsheets. When a referred hire successfully hits their 120-day mark, Rippling will automatically assign a Task to your Payroll team to issue the bonus payment.

Pay out your bonuses at the 90-day mark instead? As with all our workflow Recipes, you can customize this template to your exact needs, including when it should trigger, what the actions should be, who it should go to, and more.
