The secret to reducing hiring mistakes? It's in the metrics

Make smarter hiring decisions

In the age of big data and workforce analytics, statistics and metrics abound. In the face of an overabundance of numbers, knowing which metrics are most important can be a real challenge for HR leaders and hiring managers. Fortunately, new analyses from IBM can provide some guidance.

This white paper offers four empirically-based practical insights:

  • Metrics can make for better hiring decisions: Organizations that use the best metrics in combination could see a substantial improvement in percent rehire.
  • Not all metrics are created equal: Organizations that prioritize quality over quantity seem to be realizing the most benefit.
  • Strike a balance between quality and quantity: HR leaders and hiring managers need to manage the trade-off between practical constraints with the desire for the highest quality hires.
  • Mind your measures: Given the frequent use of performance appraisals as a measure of quality of hire, these appraisals should be as accurate and unbiased as possible.
