    Metrics that answer questions
    The recruiting analytics that you decide to capture should answer the most common questions that arise in recruiting. Focus on capturing information that will help you solve issues and bottlenecks before they become bigger problems. Performance metrics should allow you to be proactive and should allow you to answer questions in real-time.
    When considering what to measure ask the following questions.

  • 5. Are we receiving applicants for all of our open jobs?
    If youre not receiving applicants theres nothing to measure. Start here. Its critical to understand your applicant flow. This will determine how you utilize your time, money and recruiting resources.

  • 6. What are our best sources of applicants?
    Measure noise and signal. Your Monster.com rep calls and its time to renew your subscription. Is the service working? How many applicants did it yield (noise)? What source yielded the most interviews and hires (signal)? Answer these questions and more by tracking the source of all of your applicants.

  • 7. What happens to the applicants we receive?
    Ok, youre getting applicants but whats happening to them? Are you converting them into candidates that you interview? What are your conversion rates? Is there room for improvement?

  • 8. How long does it take us to move applicants through our process?
    Forget about time to fill as a key metric. If you only examine time to fill, how will you know where you can make improvements to your process? Capture how long it takes your team to move candidates from stage to stage in your process and youll quickly identify bottlenecks and areas for improvement.

  • 9. Do we have any missed opportunities?
    Its important to set up your recruiting performance metrics to catch the most costly mistakes in recruiting points of failure and indecision. Are managers making decisions on candidates. Are you missing opportunities to interview candidates? Are offers being accepted? Are candidates showing up after accepting offers? Measure what counts.

  • 10. Interactive is better.
    Spreadsheets are fine for financial models but, recruiting is dynamic. The content associated with recruiting is always changing. When you decide its time to get serious about recruiting performance metrics avoid spreadsheets and complicated report generators. Analyze the present. Choose a tool that allows you visualize all of your data on one central dashboard in real-time. Make sure your tool is interactive and can help you make decisions based on evidence.
