Learning to Love Recruiting Metrics: A Crash Course for TA Leaders

As a recruiting executive, we know you’ve got a million balls in the air, from sourcing and scheduling to chasing hiring managers, wooing candidates and locking in start dates. But if you don’t pull up from the day-to-day craziness long enough to establish, monitor and report out on your key metrics, you’ll have a confused team and disgruntled business leaders on your hands.

Oh, and in case you wondered: ‘not being good at math’ is no longer a tolerable excuse. It’s time to get with the program.

So… what are the right metrics to focus on? How do you collect the right data? That’s what we quizzed our panel of reporting practitioners and experts on.

You’ll learn:

  • What data you should focus on gathering, and what to ignore.  Don’t make things harder for yourself.  Keep it simple.  As a recruiter you have to know what the key elements are.
  • Our panelists’ key recruitment metrics.  Don’t get lost in too much data.
  • How to have a data-driven conversation with executives.  Without being wordy.
  • How to hold your team accountable through data. Having data on hand is great, but what are you using it for?
  • And more!
