Employee Referral Program

Michigan Medicine High-Demand Positions Employee Referral Program

Michigan Medicine wants your help in hiring the leaders and best to join our team. In the spirit of our core value teamwork, employees can help the organization identify and hire quality candidates for available high-demand positions. The employee referral program is designed to increase the number of candidates for specific high-demand positions experiencing critically short staffing, while rewarding current employees with an up to $1,500 bonus for referring their family, friends, neighbors and acquaintances who are hired. 

Providing a referral for an applicant is not a guarantee that the individual will receive an interview or be selected for a position at Michigan Medicine. Also, those involved in the hiring team (interviewing and selection process) for the specific job will not qualify for the referral bonus.

All referred applicants will need to complete the standardized process outlined by selection guidelines.

This program is for allied health and non-nursing positions only. For the Nursing Employee Referral Program, please click here.

How it works

  • Current high-demand positions that qualify for referral bonuses are listed below. This list is subject to change as demand changes within the organization.
  • Referring (current) employees should provide their referral with three things:
    • The posting ID# for the position- listed below
    • Their (referring employee’s) correctly spelled name and
    • Their (referring employee’s) UM ID#.
  • During the electronic application process, the applicant must include the employee’s first and last name and UM ID# at the time the application is completed. There is a section in the application that request referral information. If not completed at the time of application, the referral will not be eligible for the referral bonus.
  • If the candidate is hired, the first installment of $750 (50% of the bonus amount) will be provided following the start date of the new employee. The remaining 50% of the bonus amount will be provided after the candidate successfully completes their six-month probationary period.
