The Indiana Veterans’ Home (IVH) recognizes the importance of recruiting highly qualified staff to promote the highest quality of care possible. Filling a vacant, hard-to-fill position is a high priority, and accordingly IVH wants to reward and recognize employees of the Indiana Veterans’ Home (IVH) who refer and promote the benefits of employment with IVH.


All full-time IVH employees, with the exception of anyone who exercises discretion involving the employment decision or is involved in any way in the selection process, may participate in the program pursuant to requirements of eligibility provided in this policy.


IVH will award a lump-sum bonus payment of $500 to the referring employee and the applicant hired as a result of the referral, subject to the following:

  • The $500 referral bonus will be paid out as a one-time, lump-sum payment, which is not part of an employee’s base salary.
  • The referral bonus may be paid after referred applicant is hired and has completed 90 days of employment.
  • Referred candidates cannot be current employees in any capacity, including interns, intermittent, and agency.
  • Past employees may be eligible if they haven’t been employed with the State for a minimum of 1 year.
  • Referred candidates cannot include employees moving from other state agencies by transfer, promotion, or demotion.
  • Employees are not limited to the number of referral bonuses during each active referral plan.

The referral period is from July 1, 2017 – April 30, 2018; applicants must accept a non-contingent offer within the referral period with a start date no later than May 16, 2018.
