What is a hiring metrics dashboard?

A hiring metrics dashboard allows HR teams to monitor and analyze KPIs such as job posting performance, applicant flow, time-to-hire, cost-per-hire, and source of hire, among others, in a visual and easy-to-understand format.

  • Job posting performance to track the number of job postings, channels where it was posted, applicants from each channel, hires per job posting, etc.

  • Tracking applicant flow at each stage of the recruitment process, including resume screening, interviews, and offer acceptance.

  • Measuring time-to-hire to know the amount of time it takes to fill a position, from posting to offer acceptance.

  • Cost-per-hire to calculate the total cost of the recruitment process, including advertising, staffing agency fees, and internal HR expenses.

  • Source of hire to track where successful hires originated from, such as job boards, employee referrals, or direct applications.

  • Diversity and inclusion metrics to monitor diversity representation in applicant pools and hires.

  • Offer acceptance rate to track the percentage of job offers accepted by applicants.

  • Applicant satisfaction metrics to evaluate candidate experience with the recruitment process.

Why build a hiring metrics dashboard instead of buying one?

Many companies need custom hiring metrics dashboards because:

  • They want to elect the unique KPIs and data you want to see, and how you want to view it instead of trying to adapt your requirements to a pre-built solution.

  • They want to integrate this dashboard with their existing HR and recruitment systems, allowing for seamless data flow and improved efficiency.

  • Many off-the-shelf products are expensive and out of budget for the teams considering the ongoing subscription costs add up quickly.

  • Custom dashboards can be designed to meet the specific needs and preferences of users within the company, improving user experience, adoption as well as people’s productivity.

  • Developers, and compliance teams, want complete control over their data, ensuring it is stored and managed securely.

  • As a company grows, its recruitment needs and KPIs may change and a custom dashboard can be easily updated and scaled to accommodate these changes.

  • Integrating the dashboard with a company’s existing HR and recruitment systems can be a technical challenge and a time drain.

  • Designing a dashboard that is easy to use and provides meaningful insights requires a good understanding of frontend design principles and data visualization best practices.
