sprad = Game Changer

Sprad addresses the biggest remaining challenge of digital referral programs: the active participation of all employees (Desk & Non-Desk).

5-10x Higher Usage than Alternative Solutions

Alternative providers or ATS modules usually focus only on the referral program process. Sprad focuses on the active participation of employees. Thanks to a user-friendly platform and direct communication via Microsoft Teams, Slack, WhatsApp, etc., Sprad achieves significantly higher active usage by employees.

Built for all employees - including Non-Desk Workers

Employees without PC access cannot be reached via email or additional apps. Therefore, we have developed a specially optimized version for employees without PC access: employees can easily participate in the referral program via WhatsApp or SMS.

#1 Employee Referral Software for Enterprise

Multi-tenancy, Multi-Language Capability, the highest Standard for IT Security and Data Protection, SSO, and Integration with most Enterprise Applications make Sprad to the perfect choice for large organizations.

AI Network Suggestions from

Employees receive suitable candidates from their LinkedIn network suggested. A game-changer for knowledge workers.

Why do I need extra software for my referral program?

In our experience, manual referral programs have 4 hurdles:

  1. Employees are not aware of the open positions in the company.
  2. The manual process is much more time-consuming for employees and HR and often not DSGVO-compliant.
  3. Due to the long process of hiring, direct feedback is missing, and employees quickly lose motivation.
  4. Only a small part of the actual network of employees is used.

This is exactly where Sprad comes into play:

  1. Employees are continuously informed about new job postings.
  2. The job can be shared with one click, and the application lands immediately in the HR system.
  3. Intermediate successes are rewarded individually.
  4. Our Network Matching helps to reach the previously unused unconscious network.
For which HR systems is integration possible?

Sprad is already connected to the most popular systems: Personio, Onlyfy, Lever, Greenhouse, SuccessFactors, and more. We are also constantly working to enable connections to other systems. You can discuss your software solution directly with us in the Info Call.

Is an adaptation to my corporate design possible?

Yes, the interface, including logos, colors, text suggestions, and more, can be customized to fit your corporate design.

Which languages are available

By default, Sprad is available in German and English. Other languages can also be added on request, which may incur additional costs for translation.

How does Sprad prevent abusive behavior?

Sprad offers several ways to increase the quality of recommendations and make abusive behavior unattractive:

  1. The dynamic point system rewards recommendations the further they advance in the application process. Therefore, an unqualified recommendation is simply not profitable.
  2. Direct feedback can be given for each recommendation.
  3. Network matching helps employees find qualified contacts with a direct connection.
  4. In a serious case, points can be canceled retrospectively, and people can be excluded from the reward system.
How fast can Sprad be implemented?

Your Sprad platform is ready to use in 1-2 weeks. However, we recommend our customers allow 4-6 weeks lead time for settings, communication, and technical integration.

Is Sprad's Network Matching compliant with the GDPR?

We have worked out the responsible handling of personal data with one of the leading data protection law firms and had it approved. We only use publicly available data, like Google does. We only use publicly available data, like Google, and data from professional platforms such as LinkedIn. We are happy to share the respective document upon request so that you can see for yourself.

What are the advantages of referral recruiting?
  1. Via recommendations, employees are found much faster, and vacancies are filled more quickly.
  2. As a result, the cost per hire is reduced by up to 86%.
  3. Recommended employees remain 25% longer in the company on average and are significantly more productive and trained more quickly.
What are the advantages of a referral program via SMS and WhatsApp?

Participation via SMS and WhatsApp is especially successful for companies with many commercial employees, as it allows people without email or PC access to participate in the recommendation process.

We use the messaging app daily. We are used to it, so we usually do not block push notifications. This makes it easier to reach employees than by comparison with a dedicated APP, which is quickly muted and forgotten.

If the employee wants an app, the mobile web solution can also be displayed as an app icon on the end device, completely without downloading.

How useful is Sprad for international companies with multiple locations?

Sprad is also suitable for international companies. The greater the potential, the more employees and open company positions. The software can also take individual locations into account for individual bonuses.
