Be that as it may, the BBQ is the real meat, the real beef, as it were, in a candidate’s online job application. Read More…

    Why should you be measuring your recruiting performance?

    The simple answer is, if you don’t measure it, you can’t improve it. HR sometimes gets a bad rap for being too nebulous, too touchy-feely and too soft. There is a percecption that HR is great at working with people, not so great with driving strategic value.

    So how do you take comments like “our hiring managers are VERY happy” and “we’ve REALLY improved the candidate experience” and turned them into hard metrics? Download this Accolo Bright paper and find out!
