We recently followed this idea when we designed our draft employee referral bonus structure. One thing we considered in the design was making the awards high enough to encourage/reward employee efforts while not so high that we get applications for the sake of the bonus. I am really enjoying your blog. Thanks!

Thanks for reading and for the comment! It is a delicate balance - finding an award level that is high enough, but not too high! Good luck with your referral bonus plan!
