How recruitment analytics & reporting helps your recruitment business

recruitment analytics & report

There are some truths and saying that understand the test of time. I like the quote saying...

"if you always do what you always did, you will always get what you always got"

Whenever you expect something additional, you need to understand what you do and what changes you can bring.

The growth of an organisation solely depends on the business process, the organisation has adopted. Business processes enhancements are never-ending and the organisation has to always look forward to having a better business process.

In recruiting and staffing business, it is very important how you drive your business, what processes and workflow you have for your business. Your business processes should be well alined to save your cost, achieve operational efficiency, deliver responsive services to your customers & candidates. Recruiting is not just about finding great candidates. You must also make important decisions about how to allocate your talent budget in the most efficient way possible.

You can't have mature and accurate business processes on your first day. An organisation has to improve their business workflow and processes based on the following stuff.

In the case of small companies & agencies, they are generally less concerned about reporting & analytics and the reason being they don't grow very quickly. It is difficult for them to spend the time to generate manual reports in excel file and do some analysis on the reports. Many upon a time when you generate a report with the manual method, it may have some errors or incorrect information.

In the case of mid-size companies, they generally have the practice to generate a report but only a few companies actually review reports very accurately and prepare an action plan based on report analysis. Interpretation of reports is equally important as to generate reports. If you have good reports but you don,t put anything in action based on analysis of such good reports then there is no sense of such good reports.

Ideally, reports can be run on daily, weekly, monthly, semester, year wise depending on nature of report data.

Following are the three important aspects of recruiting reporting & analytics.
