Metrics Don't Lie But Liars Use Metrics


Published on

Some 76 percent of talent acquisition leaders admit that their organizations do a poor job of using metrics as part of their recruitment process, perhaps because they're unaware of what metrics they should be gathering or how they should be using them.

In this presentation at the National Association of Colleges and Employers 2013 annual conference, president and founder Steven Rothberg walked through the types of metrics staffing leaders should gather for their internal use and which they should provide to senior management including their CEO's, COO's, CFO's, etc.
