In the past interviews for employment consisted of an application accompanied by a CV or resume followed by an interview where candidates would be asked and given the opportunity to ask their own questions. The applicants’ chances often depended on how they came across in the interview room.
Things have advanced meaning those who struggle in such an environment are no longer as disadvantaged as more advanced forward-thinking businesses turn to using HR dashboard including HR analytics in recruitment.
There are several reasons for this change in strategy.
- Finding the best talent out in the employment market is vital to drive a business forward as the staff are the most important part of any thriving establishment. Available data and analytics allow HR teams to put a finger on the type of individuals they need, and what knowledge and skills base they should possess. All aspects that make it easier to judge whom to target for which position become apparent with human resources analytics, something conventional acquisition methods lacked in the past.
- Information will be offered through the HR dashboard as to what budget is available for recruitment and what can be offered to perspective employees in the way of training and additional bonuses.
- HR professionals will have the opportunity with the information at their disposal to study into demographic data to study ethnic diversity within the company and offer a guide on future appointments to achieve the desired balance. It can also offer a pointer as to which age group and skills are missing from your workforce to offer relative experience to increase productivity.
- Delays in the recruitment process can be alleviated meaning that there will be no shortfall in staff and a possible drop in production. Offering a speedy process increases confidence in the company as work spreads from those employed to perspective new recruits. All good news for a business looking to satisfy customer demand.
- The analysis and data-based system will offer insight into staff satisfaction among new recruits as surveys are undertaken. This will offer important information as to how staff sees the company and if the training courses are doing their job.
Using data and analysis is the way forward for any business or organization looking to recruit the very best talent available and offers the information required to plug gaps where required. Confidence will increase as a positive reputation is formed making an attractive place to be employed.
