Zao is built around referral best practices
We've built a world-class social recruiting platform
around these concepts:
Make it easy for referrers to recommend friends by matching
job description to the skills of their friends.
Make it easy to reward all the people that help you make
whether they work for your company or not.
Increase engagement with gamification by acknowledging
quality referral efforts based on your priorities.
Automate as much of your referral program as possible so that
you don't have to do any heavy lifting.
Zao is simple
We know you're too busy to learn how to use yet another product. We have an
to use sign-up wizard that makes it really simple to put jobs into the
distribute them. We keep it simple for referrers too. If you think we've
too far on features let us know!
Detailed referrer tracking
Zao lets you see exactly how you're connected to candidates. This makes it
to get a reference before you decide to interview a candidate, saving
time and resources.
Social network integration
Recruiting from Facebook? LinkedIn? Twitter? Why choose? We've integrated
these social networks, so you don't have to limit yourself (or referrers) to
any particular social network.
Outsource payment of rewards
Rewarding people outside the company is great but
calculating and making these payments can be daunting. Zao takes care of all
these payments for you. Even if you hire 100 people a month, you'll only
need to send us just one lump payment for that month. We'll distribute the appropriate
payments to the referrers in each
successful hiring chain.
Applicant Tracking System (ATS) integration
Zao can seamlessly sync with many of the leading Applicant Tracking Systems on the market.
If you already have an ATS, we will take care of syncing our two system automatically.
Considering switching ATS vendors? No worries, we can probably integrate with your new partner too.
Using social networks doesn't mean that you lose control. If you like, you
can forward jobs only to specific people, and you can limit the number of
candidates they can recommend. You can also limit the degrees of separation between you
and applicants, blocking anyone who isn't one or two degrees of separation from
Zao automatically adds a gamification layer to your referral program,
making it fun for everyone and allowing you track and manage participation.
If you choose to do so, you can share the leaderboard with your employees. This will ensure that employees get credit for every action,
whether forwarding a lead, getting an applicant, or distributing a job. It also encourages quality referrals and healthy competition.
