Inclusive hiring series: measuring what matters
August 25, 2021
About this event
“What does not get measured cannot be fixed” – Iris Bohnet, author of What Works: Gender Equality By Design
While many organisations might measure how many applicants they get for a role to determine how successful their hiring round was, there are a whole host of crucial metrics that are often missed. Why does it matter? At the end of the day, hiring the right person is crucial to any business. The effectiveness and fit of a team to an organisation is critical and can make the difference between failure and success. And hiring is the pinch point where this all happens.
The issue is that most organisations don’t know how well they’re doing with hiring, how predictive of job success their process really is, or have enough evidence to convince their teams to make a change in the way things are done or the way costs are allocated.
In this session we’ll discuss the metrics you should use at each stage of the recruitment process, some of the myths and pitfalls of the modern world of recruitment, some of the tactics that can help with hiring the best people, and crucially how to measure the effectiveness of any interventions you make in your hiring process.
