recruitment analytics  

analytics.jpeg

Our analytics are designed to drive recruitment strategy and execution: impactful, measurable, and specific to your company culture. We use technology and sophisticated data science tools to help answer critical questions, including:

  • What are the critical traits that predict candidates’ success in our organisation?
  • Who are our best interviewers? How do we improve our interviewers?
  • How can we achieve our diversity and social mobility goals whilst improving our performance? 
  • Which recruitment marketing strategy provides the highest ROI?

Workforce analytics

Our workforce analytics answers critical people questions facing organisations.  It is designed to provide evidence based analysis that optimises business metrics.  Critical questions include:

  • Are we electing the right people into the partnership without denying high potential employee who turn to our competitors?
  • What is the business impact of our flexible work schemes?  How can we optimise it for both employees and business?
  • What will our workforce look like in the next 12-24 months, and what can we do today to best support the business?
  • Are there inherent diversity biases in our organisation, and how can we overcome these to achieve our targets?
