You love referral hires, but your referral bonus program is limited to your employees. That leaves out ex-employees, vendors and your entire trusted business network, who all know a lot of great people. Plus, there's no easy way for referrers to search their networks for relevant candidates.

Enter Zao:

With Zao, employees and referrers are rewarded if a friend of a friend is hired, so there's an added incentive to distribute jobs across their social networks. Using semantic algorithms, we help referrers easily match your job description to online profiles of their friends and recommend the right person.
