Employee Referral Program

SID Computer Group, Inc. recognizes the importance of recruiting highly qualified staff to provide the highest quality of IT services possible.  Filling a vacant position is a high priority, and what better way to identify the right talent than to go to our current employees.  Accordingly, as an incentive to enlist your help in identifying highly talented candidates SID Computer Group offers employees a referral bonus for their efforts in the successful referral and placement of qualified candidates.

SID Computer Group will pay a $500 bonus to any employee who, while he or she is employed at SID Computer Group, refers a candidate for employment to SID Computer Group and that person is subsequently hired by SID Computer Group and remains employed by SID Computer Group for at least three (3) months.
All employees are eligible to participate in the program, providing the following criteria have been met:

  • The referring employee must be employed by the organization at the time of referral.
  • The referring employee must be employed by the organization at the time of hire of the referred candidate.
  • The name of the referring employee referring the candidate must be written on the candidate’s employment application.
  • The referring employee has completed an Employee Referral Application and submitted it to Human Resources prior to the initial interview.
  • The candidate, if hired, must remain employed by SID Computer Group for a period of three months.
  • The referring employee must also remain employed by SID Computer Group through the end of the referred employee's three-month employment period.
  • The referred candidate must not have been presented to SID Computer Group by any other source (agencies, referrals, self-referrals) within the previous twelve (12) months from the submission

The bonus referral policy will apply to all positions with SID Computer Group.  All referral awards must be approved in advance by Human Resources and will be paid after the appropriate waiting period. All awards are subject to taxation.

Candidate Referral Eligibility Requirements
To be eligible for referral under the Employee Referral Program, referred applicants must fully meet the qualification requirements listed in the job description for the position.

Referral Procedure

An employee should submit the referred candidate’s resume and a completed Employee Referral Form to the HR Director for a posted job. Employees should obtain permission from the applicant before making a referral, share their knowledge of the organization, and not make commitments or oral promises of employment.

Duplicate Referrals

If duplicate referrals occur, the first referral received will be eligible for payment. If a joint referral is made (and received at the same time), the Referral Bonus will be split evenly between the referring staff.

Selection Procedures

The employment application will be reviewed through the normal hiring procedures. The appropriate employment staff member will review the application. If the applicant meets the specified qualifications for the position, the application will be referred to the hiring department for review and evaluation. The hiring manager will make the selection decision for the position. All information regarding the reason(s) for making a decision not to hire an applicant will remain strictly confidential. Applicants must successfully complete all aspects of the pre-employment process.
