Employee ERP Rules
The Banner Health (BH) Employee Referral Program (ERP) replaces all previous referral programs. This includes all regional and all facility referral programs.
Designated open positions are eligible for an employee referral (the current eligible status codes are Full-time-FA, Part-time-PA).
Positions will be designated as needed. As of 2013, the positions eligible for a referral reward are:
A thank-you reward of:
- $1,500 will be paid to employees who refer a full-time BH employee (.8 Full-Time Equivalent or higher).
- $750 will be paid to employees who refer a part-time BH employee (.4 up to .8 Full-Time Equivalent).
The referral rewards will be paid in two phases:
- First payment will be half of the total reward after the referred employee has worked 16 hours.
- The remainder of the reward will be paid after the referred employee completes six months of employment with BH.
Rewards are subject to Federal, State and FICA taxes.
The referring employee must be in an active status at the time they refer the candidate and at the time of the reward receipt.
Tracking/reporting of ERP rewards will be done by BH Human Resources.
Candidates who have previously worked for BH can be referred by current employees. However, the candidate cannot have worked for BH in the last year (365 days).
