Not long ago, newspaper adverts and faxed resumes were staples of the recruitment process. Sorting through paper CVs and organising candidates in rudimentary databases were the best ways of filtering applications. Decisions about improving recruitment strategies had to be made on gut feelings rather than tangible facts. Under this model, success was both hard to measure and difficult to define.
Today, times have changed. HR is becoming more strategic and data-driven as it moves away from the “post and pray” model. Increasingly, talent acquisition teams use automated source tracking to understand what recruiting activity is most effective — and the smartest companies have a process for feeding these insights back into the organisation. This approach enables them to make informed recruitment advertising decisions based on data.
