Employee Referral Bonus Program (ERBP)

The Employee Referral Bonus Program (ERBP) was developed to award the recruitment efforts of all paid employees.

  • $1,500 over 2 years ($250 after 3 months, $250 after 6 months, $500 after 1 year and final $500 after 2 years) for hard-to-fill positions

Nursing Referral Bonus Program
February 15 – May 30, 2015

All UTMB employees are eligible for a $3,000 bonus by referring an ADN or a BSN degreed nurse for the Health System Clinical Enterprise.

Applicants hired must:

  • Select Employee as the Referral Type on the application
  • Select the referring employee’s name and ID number on all applications
  • Have an ADN or a BSN degree
  • Have 12 months of RN direct patient care experience
  • Not have been employed by UTMB in the previous 12 months to hire date

If your referral meets the applicant requirements and is hired, you will receive $1,500 when he or she completes six months of service and another $1,500 when he or she completes one year of service. All bonus payouts are subject to taxation, and you must be employed at UTMB at the time of each payout.

There is no limit to the number of referrals you can make, which can really add up for you and benefit UTMB at the same time!
