The Effect of Workplace Gender and Race Demographic Composition on Hiring through Employee Referrals.
Taber, Mary E.; Hendricks, Wallace
Human Resource Development Quarterly, v14 n3 p303-19 Fall 2003
Data on 15,253 newly hired employees were coded by hiring source (employee referral, other informal, temporary worker, formal, unspecified). Analysis suggested that referrals were less likely when candidates were not of the same gender or race as most current employees. Minorities used networking more but knew fewer people able to recommend them. (Contains 37 references.) (SK)
