Firstbird and ARAGO Consulting Announce Strategic Partnership
for reselling and implementing the leading Employee Referral Firstbird solution


Vienna and Paris – October 4, 2021 – Firstbird, the leading employee referral solution for enterprises, and ARAGO Consulting, a leading HR cloud solutions specialist, dedicated to SAP SuccessFactors implementations, announced their strategic partnership today that is expected to accelerate growth for both companies in the fast-growing, digital employee referral space.


The partnership will focus on providing and supporting ARAGO Consulting SAP SuccessFactors customers with the employee referral solution, which has experienced growing demand from enterprises around the world in the post-pandemic recruitment market.

With ARAGO Consulting, Firstbird extends global reach to more than 550 SAP SuccessFactors customers in France, Benelux, Portugal and Switzerland.


Firstbird enables organizations to automate and digitize their employee referrals programs. Integrated with the ATS (applicant tracking system), Firstbird’s solution allows recruiting teams and employees to collaborate efficiently and simply to increase the visibility of job offers on social networks. As referred candidates automatically appear in the ATS, employees and HR teams are able to share the view of the recruitment journey. Another benefit is that reward triggers at each stage (sharing a job, recommendation, candidate referral, etc.) are automated. There are many International companies using Firstbird successfully, among them are SAP, Deloitte, and Red Bull.


“We’re extremely pleased to be finally working together with ARAGO Consulting,” says Matthias Wolf, CCO and Co-Founder of Firstbird. “ARAGO Consulting are digital HR experts and have an exceptional reputation when it comes to providing and implementing digital solutions for their customers. This is exactly the kind of partnership we have been looking for to help support the increasing demand for employee referral technology in Europe. I’m very positive that it’s going to be a fantastic collaboration for both of us.”


“Since the creation of ARAGO Consulting, we have been committed to a strategy of innovation, in order to bring even more value to our clients, with innovative solutions that complement the functionalities of SAP SuccessFactors,” explains Jean-Christophe Péaudeau, President of ARAGO Consulting. “We are very pleased with this partnership with Firstbird, which allows us to offer our clients the best digitalization solution for employee referrals on the market.“


The partnership will start off with a specialist webinar series for ARAGO Consulting customers, the first being “Digitalizing Employee Referrals: Why the Time Is Now” which will be held on the 14th of October 2021. You can register for a spot here (French speaking).
