To guarantee the implementation of your recruitment marketing technology is a long-term success, it is critical to document and share key performance indicators (KPIs) and understand how to appropriately measure the success of your candidate relationship management (CRM) programs. 

Top recruitment metrics every TA team should know

Adoption is not one-size-fits-all. However, the 82% who struggle with adoption challenges link to poor planning and evaluation of success metrics.

To avoid the same adoption curve, analyze the situation and dig into the metrics of adoption success. 

Today’s talent acquisition leaders can benefit significantly from recruitment marketing tools that capture and analyze data. Having that information at hand dramatically reduces the guessing game involved in hiring, helps you understand how your team is performing, and lets you deliver the personalized, candidate-centric experience that attracts and retains the right hires.

Additionally, having recruitment metrics saves HR professionals time and effort that’s better put toward fostering relationships.

    • Hiring Costs: Having a solid answer to the cost of individual versus collective hires helps you make informed decisions about budget allocation based on precise, identifiable results.
