Boon’s solution is designed to increase referrals through ease of use, as well as a gamification layer.

What's Inside

Boon Review

Boon’s founders ran a recruiting agency that realized referrals were by far their number one source of hire. They built their own tech to boost referrals, and thought that others would get value out of the system they’ve built. What’s unique here is that this isn’t a solution designed just for fast growing tech companies as their customers are recruiting everyone from engineers to truck drivers.
