Recruiting Strategy Metrics

From Transactional to Transformational

What’s Great (and Not So Great) About Transactional Metrics

Transactional measures are essential. They provide a baseline and key starting point for a recruitment strategy. That’s why recruiters want to know things like how long it took and how much it cost to fil the role before.

They are often easily accepted because they provide an indisputable figu - e.g., “time-to-hire has been cut by 30% as compared to the same quarter last year.” They sound good, but it gives an incomplete picture without an understanding of the more complicated dynamics associated With labor market trends, the quality and productivity of those new hires or hiring manager satisfaction.
