Pearson Referral Bonus
Looking for an easy way to earn extra money? Want to help your friends and family find a job?
Refer a candidate for employment and receive a $100.00 bonus for each referral that meets the eligibility requirements. Your candidate need only successfully complete 80 hours of employment!
Pearson recognizes that its employees may be the best source of locating and recruiting high caliber candidates to fill temporary positions. To encourage employees to recruit and recommend Pearson as an employer to their friends and acquaintances, Pearson offers a referral bonus to reward employees who refer candidates to successfully fill temporary positions.
Bonus Amount: Employees are eligible to receive a $100.00 bonus when Pearson hires a candidate they have referred for temporary positions.
Eligibility Requirements: Current regular full-time or regular part-time Pearson employees who are not managers with direct supervisory responsibility for the position being recruited are eligible to participate in the bonus program. Current Pearson temporary and term-of-project employees are eligible to participate. Agency or contract employees are not eligible to participate in the bonus program.
Referred employees NOT eligible for the referral bonus are: 1) past regular or temporary employees of Pearson; consultants; contractors and agency employees; 2) those referred by an employment agency; 3) HR personnel; and 4) applicants responding to an advertisement. If more than one Pearson employee refers a candidate, the employee who refers the successful candidate first will receive the bonus.
How to Refer a Candidate: When referring a candidate for employment, the referred candidate must indicate in their application survey that they were referred and indicate the name of the referrer. Referrals submitted following receipt of the applicant's application survey would not be eligible for the referral bonus.
Bonus Payment: The referring employee must still be a Pearson employee when the new employee successfully completes a minimum of 80 hours of employment on a temporary assignment. If either the referred or referring employee leaves Pearson employment prior to the completion of 80 hours of employment the bonus is forfeited. Additionally the 80 hours must be reached within 12 months from the referred employees hire date. For example, an individual with a hire date of January 1, 2010 must reach the 80 hours prior to January 1, 2011. If all conditions of the program have been met the referring employee will be issued a recruitment bonus by payroll check minus the appropriate taxes (bonuses are taxed at a higher rate, approximately 42%). Costs of the program will be charged to the hiring department?s budget. This program may be amended or changed at any time. The Manager of Temporary Employment will determine final decisions regarding eligibility for bonus awards. If a candidate is hired as a temporary employee and converts to regular employment status, the referral will be processed through the temporary referral program.
