Detailed Analytics And Your Recruiting KPIs!

This has been a much-requested feature from our community and its not hard to see why. Reports on your hiring pipeline and application influx can surface areas of improvement and the key performance indicators that will help you objectively assess your recruiting efforts. At the end of the day, if you’re not benchmarking your performance, you’re losing out – Its as simple as that.

As with every other department, employers need to be well informed on how their recruitment efforts are faring with time and whether they are investing in the proper channels. Answers to questions like “Are their any bottlenecks in the hiring process?” or “How much time does it take for us to fill a vacancy on average?” help you understand your hiring workflow better and in turn, enable you to take action to address problems and improve performance over time. More than being just a bunch of numbers, Simplicant’s reports are key performance indicators that will help hiring departments optimize their processes, which essentially translates to saved costs.

So, what reports do we offer? Here’s a quick summary:

1. The Dashboard

This is a brief summary regarding what’s been happening lately. It tells you how many applications were received against open jobs and what your candidate status pipeline looks like right now in the form of a nice pie chart.

2. Activity Summary

This tells you a detailed view of how many applications you have received on a monthly basis. You can use this report to asses the visibility of your company and how candidate interest has varied over time.

3. Status Pipeline

This report gives you a summary of the number of applicants in various stages of your hiring pipeline – extremely useful in identifying potential bottlenecks in your hiring pipeline.

4. Average Time to Hire

This simply shows you how much time does it take to fill a vacancy on average. Why is it important? Think of it this way. Every employee that you hire translates to revenue for your company. And the more time you expend in finding a suitable hire means more costs for your company. Therefore, the higher the time to hire, the higher your costs and longer it takes your company to convert recruitment efforts into tangible revenue.

5. Applications Per job

Which jobs are the most popular? This is a simple report that will allow you to understand which job openings need more attention.

6. Compliance Reports

Say goodbye to all the hassle in compiling EEO information and submitting it to comply with federal laws. We simplify all this by allowing you to download a formatted report with a click of a button.

So, check out reports and start evaluating your hiring process. You never know, you might find something surprising.
