By adopting a strategic, data-based approach and taking recruiting into the social and mobile worlds, recruiters gain a whole new arsenal of tools to improve hiring speed and quality. It’s an opportunity to have an impact on business results.
Trend No. 1: Data Paves the Way for Strategic Recruiting
Today, recruiters have an unprecedented opportunity to use data in strategic ways. With data and analytics tools at their fingertips, recruiters can uncover patterns in their processes. Identifying these patterns can help recruiters tweak what isn’t working and invest more time and resources in what is working, leading to increased organizational efficiency. Recruiting dollars can be spent in ways that guarantee returns.
By tracking source of hire data, recruiters can see which sourcing methods are working and which ones are not. This allows them to refine their efforts and focus on sourcing channels that bring in the most high-quality candidates. Recruiters can also investigate cost-per-hire data and identify ways to lower recruiting costs while maintaining efficiency.
