Who are the real recruitment super heroes?

Discover who the real super heroes are in your recruitment business through advanced visual dashboard reporting software.

Determining who the real performers are within your business is not as easy as you may think.  Standard reports typically only tell you all about their activity levels and so don’t reveal the underlying factors that determine those within your business that produce the “best” results.

Take a standard metric like the number of telephone calls made by an individual within in a day, week or month. Useful, but certainly not anything other than a crude measure when it comes to identifying the behaviour that produces revenue-related results.  For example, being able to combine this information with other sets of data to reveal “What’s the duration of calls being made?” and “What’s the minimum length of telephone call needed to achieve a successful outcome?”,  can reveal critical factors that are underpinning the success of your business.


Similarly, you also probably have an idea of the rate of progress you can expect from new starters but would benefit from knowing  sooner whether they’ll make it to super heroe status or not?

Many recruiters are using reporting tools that just can’t keep up or that only offer “business as usual” information. In this situation spreadsheets become the weapon of choice for attempting to address the inadequacies of standard reports. This results in silos of information, duplication of data, the introduction of more risk and, as a consequence, the loss of significant insights that can be applied to benefit the business as a whole.

However, it doesn’t have to be this way as there are business intelligence tools that recruiters can use to help make significant and dramatic progress. Using dashboards reporting software can streamline the reporting process, making information immediately and accessible. Which means you have time to really understand what the underlying data is trying to tell you.

3 Reporting Revelations

These are just 3 of the ways that dashboards reporting software can transform your recruitment reporting methods (there are many more!):

  • Transformation #1 -Combine data to discover what makes the difference between over- and under- performers

With all the data you need at your fingertips, you can act more strategically, for example, enabling you to make better informed decision like “Should we be recruiting another five heads or can we achieve the same growth in business by increasing the time our existing staff spend making calls by 5%?”.  The answers are already in your data you just need dashboards to  reveal which course of action is the best for your business.

  • Transformation #2 – Improve performance from seeing results differently

With real-time information such as location-based results you can instantly see things you couldn’t see before, for example, by showing your staff activity levels and results in the form of geographical maps you can ask more of the right questions, such as “we made £x in that region by this time last year, but so far this year have made less, why is that?”  Enabling you take take more direct action and proactively resolve issues before they become problems – turning you into a super heroe in the process.

  • Transformation #3 – Reveal what marketing activities work to drive results

Use dashboards to show your marketing team which of their activities lead to the most placements.

As the data is available in real-time they can replicate the successful activities more quickly and bin the ones that aren’t working, which will ensure that your marketing is as effective as it possibly can be in getting your results.

Staying Ahead of the Competition

By using business intelligence tools to manage your recruitment results you can maintain a competitive edge in a time when competition is increasing.

The real-time reporting capabilities that dashboards reporting software provide is like having a full-time Data Analyst in your business to tell you what you need to know, just when you need to know it.

If you know exactly where you stand at any given moment, you are better placed to make the decisions that will ensure that you continue to be successful despite the increased competition.

Take action!

  • Knowing who the real super heroes are in your organisation means that you can apply what they do to help others to achieve more for your business

  • There is gold in your data – you just lack a tool to deliver it to you.

  • Use dashboards reporting software to make sure your business gets the results it needs.
