About us

How this all started...

In 2016, David Folwell was helping a few agencies with their digital marketing. All the firms were running into the same problem. They needed more qualified candidates ASAP.

He identified referrals as the highest quality and lowest cost source of talent. And then set out to build a new type of sourcing software.

In 2017, Staffing Referrals launched the first automated referral management (ARM) platform designed for staffing agencies. Since then, thousands of recruiters have used Staffing Referrals to connect top talent with the perfect job.

Now, Staffing Referrals helps agencies worldwide track, manage, and scale their referral program.
