Measurement is the key to success, as it shows what works and what doesn’t and allows you to craft your strategies and approach to get the most out of what you put in.

Recruiting metrics and recruiting technology are two crucial topics in hiring and recruitment. They are two things that every organization ought to have, but if they aren't used correctly, then the organization is not getting the full benefit of the metrics' insight or of the technology's capabilities. This week's hiring and recruiting news roundup focuses on these two topics, topics that we haven't covered much in news roundups and that are long overdue for discussion.

Getting a Hold on Your Metrics

By RPOA Staff Wed, May 21,2014 @ AM

Getting a hold of your metrics means a lot more than just refining the way in which you measure and collect information on the state of your company’s hiring function. In order to truly get the most out of your hard work, blood, sweat and spread sheets, your metrics have to do more than just collect dust. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of accurate measurement, but recording metrics for metrics sake just isn’t the point of the whole exercise. The point of this data is improvement, and the potential that good metrics have for growing your hiring function is immense. The only problem is that, much of the time, the same HR people who put in the time to collect and catalog the right metrics can’t quite tell the story that the data is pointing at. Even if the numbers are all laid out in front of you and your executives, the bottom line and organizational impact of recent HR decisions and your hiring function as a whole can still be lost in translation.
