LiveHire Recruitment Analytics

Industries around the world are increasingly relying on data delivered by advanced analytics technology to inform their decisions and recruitment analytics needs are no different. HR & Talent Acquisition teams commonly face the challenge of drawing recruiting insights from their supporting technology, often requiring in-house experts to massage their data into the output they need to understand their recruiting metrics to help them with future hires.

With that in mind, LiveHire has set out to reinvent Analytics for Talent Acquisition teams with the launch of LiveHire recruitment Analytics for our applicant tracking system, candidate relationship management, and other recruitment features to help your organisation make better hiring decisions faster.

What is LiveHire recruitment analytics?

LiveHire recruitment Analytics enables Talent Acquisition teams to visualise, drill-down and explore their own data to find actionable insights for their recruiting process, which are available at their fingertips on their interactive dashboards. Using LiveHire recruitment analytics can give you the data driven hiring mindset to help your organisation’s future growth.

What makes LiveHire Recruitment Analytics different?

Unlike other recruitment analytics functionality which provides high-level, standard PDF reports or basic data extracts that need to be set up externally and can never be changed or improved, LiveHire provides customisable and intuitive data visualisations across a wide variety of complex metrics that are calculated for your convenience. LiveHire recruitment analytics lets you focus your time uncovering valuable insights from your hiring process instead of reproducing reports that go unused across the business or focusing on predictive analytics instead of real time data about your recruiters and applicants.

We understand that no company or one team is the same. So, we’ve built a highly flexible recruitment data tool that you can filter to suit your needs and use to drill down to the most relevant and important data point – whether that’s time to hire, source of hire or where the best candidates come from for your organisation. The recruitment process is different in each organisation, but what remains important is the data visualisation and metrics that measure your organisation key KPIS (Key Performance Indicators) and success in tracking and hiring your high quality candidates.

How Analytics in Recruitment Helps your Team

These insights from LiveHire Analytics can be leveraged to guide strategic and tactical decisions and empower great recruitment outcomes from our software.

As with all solutions we develop, we are leveraging best in breed technology and co-developing LiveHire recruitment Analytics with clients like Tim Clark, Recruitment Lead @ Zinfra who has provided valuable feedback during an early release Beta Program. Here’s what Tim has to say about it:

“The LiveHire Analytics tool is a great addition to the LiveHire platform and in my view is a huge step forward in relation to the overall platform functionality.

 As Recruitment Lead, I now have the ability to access fully customisable data on demand.  This helps me have informed conversations with my team and stakeholders and means the answers to my questions are only a few clicks away.”
