Operational hiring reports

Operational hiring reports always show what is happening in the present. Company leaders and hiring team can see that the hiring process is being optimized.

  • Hiring pipeline report – indicates how many applicants are distributed throughout each level of your hiring pipeline.

If a segment of them is advancing through each step to your hiring system, it means you’re attracting the right candidates.

  •  Source report – shows how many applicants come from each source and how many of them passed the initial evaluation.

It is very important to concentrate to the best candidate sources and this report will help you identify them.

  • Rejection report – Shows the stage and the reasons why your candidates were rejected.

From this report you can find out if unfavorable candidates are rejected early in the hiring process (as they should be) or if they slip through your filters and advance too far (which means you should work on improving your hiring strategy).

  • Interviewer/reviewer report

This report shows, for each hiring team member, the number of interviews they participated in and how much time it took for them to evaluate their candidate. You will also be able to observe the type of feedback each interviewer offers.

  •  Coordinator report/activity report – shows the number of candidates that were sent for review, evaluated, scheduled for an interview or hired.
