“We have built a model that creates a viral win-win experience. If you work in pharma sales, you are best suited to understand a pharma sales job requirement. Furthermore, you have the largest high-quality network in pharma sales. Ideally, you should be empowered to discover and refer great-fit people from your network and get rewarded if your referral makes it,” said Bavishi.

He added that people can earn 20-30 per cent of their annual salary more from making the right referrals, which gives HR a pool of high-quality curated profiles to look at.
