  • 1.  Recruitment incentives for part-time staff

    Greetings CPRS,

    At conference this past March, I heard that a few agencies have starting offering recruitment incentives in an attempt to get more applicants to apply for their open part-time positions. If you are one of those agencies, would you mind providing answers to the following questions:

    1. What incentives are you offering? 
    2. Are the incentives only for the applicants or do you have incentives for current staff to encourage them to refer people to apply? 
      1. If you have referral incentives for current staff, what do you offer?
    3. Since you began offering incentives, what has been the result? 
    4. Did you have any challenges convincing HR or Finance to allow you to offer recruitment incentives?
      1. If yes to #4, what were the challenges and how did you resolve them? 
    Thank you for your responses.
