IHRIM's Advanced Staffing Analytics
Staffing is a core human resources management function. But it is also complex, involving a sequence of interrelated decisions controlled alternatively by job seekers and organization decision makers. Developing metrics and analytics to improving staffing effectiveness requires an understanding of these decisions and a framework of metrics and analytics supporting organization decision makers' actions in their roles as decision makers and decision influencers. A system of metrics and associated analytics is offered that can form the foundation for evaluating staffing effectiveness for all positions in all organizations, but which has it greatest utility in high volume recruitment.
