Let’s face it—the recruiting metrics you use at your company are either non-existent or stale.  Sure, you tried to roll out the basics—time to hire, cost per hire—but all that did was put the focus on your HR/Recruiting function, not the people who actually make the final hiring decision.  Flash forward 12 months since the launch of those basic recruiting …

I’m going to take a different tack on today’s post.  Instead of waxing poetic on a point of HR or employee engagement I’m going to start a discussion and then walk away and let you all continue.

A few years ago I wrote a blog post on measuring ROI and metrics for social recruiting. Just for kicks, I went back to look at the list based on recent ongoing in-the-office discussions I’ve been having with my team on what we’re trying to measure and why for the work we do.
