2. Referral Program
The Company’s referral program is intended to boost membership by incentivizing members to recommend candidates and hiring managers for placement as well as provide honest reputation feedback and video short recommendations, positive, constructive and negative (can be private). Referral rewards are only paid to referrers of referrals who are successfully placed, subject to the following terms.
2.1.1 A client is a company or entity that has signed a master services agreement with the Company to recruit or staff candidates.
2.1.2 A candidate is a real person who the Company places with a client, usually an employee or consultant.
2.1.3 A placement is a candidate who is hired by client with the assistance of the Company.
2.1.4 A successful placement is a placement who has completed his guarantee period.
2.1.5 A guarantee period refers to the duration between the start date of a placed candidate and the end date, after which the guarantee expires and the candidate is considered a successful placement. The guarantee period, if applicable, is specified by contract. If a placement is unsuccessful prior to the guarantee expiration, the Company agrees to use its best efforts to submit one or more complimentary replacement candidates for consideration by client within 2x the guarantee period from original start date. The Company cannot promise finding a candidate of equal or higher quality within this timeframe, or that the client will wish to hire any replacement candidate(s).
2.1.6 A referrer is a real person who is member of Company’s network who submits a referral to the Company, identified by valid email, and/or linkedIn profile URL.
2.1.7 A primary referrer is the first referrer of a unique referral to the Company who has not previously been placed by the Company or engaged by the Company as a client.
2.1.8 A secondary referrer is a referrer who has missed the opportunity to be a primary referrer.
2.1.9 A referral is a referred real person who is candidate with or without hiring authority.
2.1.10 A direct referral is a candidate who is successfully placed.
2.1.11 An indirect referral is a hiring manger who hires candidates (not necessarily referred candidates).
2.1.12 A referrer pool is the portion of a client commission the Company receives for a single successful placement that is potentially paid to referrers. The pool size is specified by percentage (see Referral Reward Formulas) with a possible fixed cap. For example, if the Company earns a $50,000 commission for a successful placement, the pool size would be $4,000 based on an 8% pool size without cap.
The pool is split equally four ways:
- A starting bonus for a successfully placed candidate.
- The primary referrer of a successfully placed candidate.
- The primary referrer of a hiring manager who hires a successfully placed candidate.
- Secondary referrers of a successfully placed candidate.
2.1.13 A referral reward is cash compensation based on the formula defined below that is subject to change. It is only ever paid for successfully placed referrals.
For referrers to become eligible for referral rewards:
2.2.1 Referrers must specify their relationship to each referral they refer for at least one company they’ve both worked for.
2.2.2 Referrers must pledge in good faith that they (a) want work with or hire their referral, (b) have worked with their referral closely to make this recommendation, and (c) believe strongly that the referred member is trustworthy, ethical, performs at a high level of proficiency, and is worthy of hire.
2.2.3 Referrers and referrals must both be active members of the network.
2.2.4 Referrers and referrals must be verified as a real people, supply their full name and contact information including email and phone number.
2.2.5 Referrers must specify valid, current payment information and tax ID to receive payouts.
2.2.6 A referrer must supply a valid email and/or LinkedIn profile URL to invite referrals to join the network.
2.2.7 A referral must confirm the relationship to their referrer as specified by the referrer.
2.2.8 A referral must be successfully placed by the Company.
2.3 Referral Reward Formulas
2.3.1 Successfully placed candidates receive 100% of their pool split.
2.3.2 Primary referrers of successfully placed direct candidates receive 100% of their pool split.
2.3.3 Primary referrers of successfully placed indirect candidates (through a referred manager) receive 100% of their pool split.
2.3.4 Secondary direct and indirect referrers of a successful placement share their pool split equally in round robin chronological groups of up to 8 at a time, four primary and four secondary referrers (floor down to the nearest integer).
2.3.5 Employee referrer pools are 8% of their Company commissions and paid only upon successful placement to eligible referrers.
2.3.6 Consultant referrer pools are the same percentage as Employee pools, but paid out in four quarter payments for every 520 hours worked by the candidate. Example: If the pool is $4000, then $1000 is applied for for every 520 hours worked until the pool amount is exhausted.
2.3.7 Secondary Split Pool Sharing Examples
220.127.116.11 A successful placement is made with a pool split of $1000. There are 2 direct and 4 indirect referrals for a total of 6 secondary referrers. Each receives $166.00 (floor($1000/6)). If this referred candidate is placed again during the same calendar year, no referrers are compensated until and unless they are placed in a subsequent year.
18.104.22.168 The next time the above referral is successfully placed in a new calendar year, there are 2 new direct and 2 new indirect secondary referrers for a 8 total secondary referrers compensated for this placement. Since there are now 4 total direct secondary referrers, they each receive compensation. With 6 indirect secondary referrers now, the 2 new ones and then the first 2 in chronological order are compensated. All of the 8 compensated secondary referrers earn $125 each (floor($1000/8)).
2.4 General Terms
2.4.1 Rewards per placement are only conferred once per candidate per year. That means that if a reward was conferred based on a candidate’s placement in year one, no additional rewards are conferred in that same calendar year. The next conferred reward for this placement can only occur in the next calendar year.
2.4.2 The Company pledges to pay referrers for every placement of their referrals forever (subject to change) within Net-30 of the following calendar month the guarantee period ends. Example: If a successful placement occurs on May 15th, then referrer payouts are due June 1, Net-30.
2.4.3 The Company shall submit a 1099-MISC to referrers who are US citizens who have been paid more than the minimum statutory amount (presently $600 or more in 2023) in the previous calendar year.
