How HR Reports Can Aid Your Recruiting Efforts

HR reports are an essential part of understanding and optimizing the employee lifecycle. Recruiting reports, in particular, can provide valuable insights into how to improve the employee experience and employer branding.

According to GEM, candidate outreach data is tracked by 87% of talent professionals. Whereas 43% of automated solutions follow open, click, and reply rates for them.

However, some HR reports need to be updated and could be improved by collecting additional data at the recruiting stage.

By doing so, companies can better understand what attracts and retains employees, make better decisions about their recruitment strategies, and share this reporting with cross-functional teams like hiring managers.

Read on to learn more about the five HR reports you need to inform data-driven recruiting today.

Use the EEO HR Report to Understand Demographics

An Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) dashboard is a powerful tool to help organizations foster a more inclusive and diverse work environment. For example, Lever’s EEO dashboard provides detailed information on the demographics of candidates in an organization’s pipeline and archive, helping to identify areas where the candidate pool may need more diversity.

EEO data can be beneficial for talent teams who are looking for candidates from different backgrounds who are looking to apply for open positions. This data can help identify potential employers committed to diversity and inclusion and who may be more likely to consider candidates from a wide range of backgrounds.

Additionally, this data can also help assess whether an organization is meeting its goals to diversify its workforce.

This view of your talent pool shows you if your team and company are making strides in sourcing and attracting diverse candidates and, if you still need to, what recruiting adjustments are necessary.

Leverage candidate experience surveys

Lever’s candidate experience surveys dashboard, can give you insight into the sentiment of candidates in our talent acquisition pipeline. In addition, this dashboard allows you to run qualitative assessments of your recruitment procedures to ensure that your processes result in the best possible experience for candidates.

Having an HR report for candidate surveys helps your team to streamline your recruitment process from direct feedback. You can improve your CRM strategy by knowing how your candidates feel about your recruitment process.

Sourcing HR reports helps the talent pipeline

You can use a sourcing dashboard to determine how candidates enter your talent pipeline and the quality of those channels based on their performance. A sourcing dashboard is useful in establishing the ROI of job market spending and identifying trends and changes in your recruitment funnel.

Ultimately, sourcing HR reports is a valuable tool for any business that relies on talent pipelines to source candidates. The information from the HR report can be used to adapt your strategy in order to better target the right candidates.

The sources on the Lever board include the following:

  • Single value charts
  • Tables
  • Sourced opportunities over time
  • Origin of opportunities and hires
  • Offer acceptance rate by origin

It also identifies trends and changes in your recruitment funnel. For example, if you notice a decrease in applications from one site, you can investigate why that may be and make changes accordingly.

HR reports for hiring managers

Using this dashboard, hiring managers can gain a deeper understanding of their recruitment processes, allowing them to target areas that need improvement and reinforce areas that perform well.
