I have to admit I looked at the title of this one and thought “hmm data…”. However, this was a really great #RecHangout during which our guests delved into using recruitment and talent analytics to transform performance in a lot of depth.
We had our usual fabulous hosts in Alan Whitford – Abtech Partnership and Louis Welcomme – Colleague Software with Mark Stephens – Smart Recruit Online asking lots of great questions too. Our guests were Anthony Scarpino, Senior Director Talent Acquisition at Sodexo (USA), and Ian Bailie, Global Head, Talent Acquisition and People Planning at Cisco Systems, and David Green, Global Director, People Analytics at IBM. During the hour we discussed.
– What should recruiters and HR be measuring (and how should they be doing this)
– Why talent analytics matter
– How metrics can be interpreted and used to review and improve performance
– How to make better decisions using data
– How technology can help

Here are some blog post which I think nicely back up and continue on from some of the points discussed:
6 Big Data Metrics That Drive Quality of Hire (although it was said more than once that you should pick recruitment data to measure that both works for and is important for your company)
A 7-Step Plan for Measuring and Improving Quality of Hire – this follows on from the above article and is also written by Lou Adler where he suggests rather than assessing the quality of person, you should assess the quality of person’s accomplishments.
A Standard Set Of Recruiting Metrics – with interesting follow up comments too
The Absurdity of Cost per Hire in Recruiting – great blog post from David Green who was one of our guests
People Analytics goes into orbit – 10 takeaways from #PAFOW 16 – another great article from David
Measuring Quality of Hire – The Ultimate Recruiting Metric (this is a weighty 28 page PDF!)
