Talent Acquisition Analytics

Never before has there been more focus on making data-driven business decisions across all of Human Capital Management. And, now due to advancements in talent acquisition technology, predictive and prescriptive analytics are available to help expedite and improve decisions. Some examples of those analytics include likelihood of employment tenure, likelihood for time-to-fill, and more.

This is the opportunity for you to share your organization’s practices, attitudes, and expectations for these metrics by participating in this survey. This survey will also explore the potential impact of technology on talent acquisition predictive and prescriptive analytics for decision-making and organizational performance.

Brandon Hall Group’s engagement research will track trends uncovered in our 2016 engagement survey, and will take an in-depth look at the drivers of employee engagement initiatives, how organizations assess engagement levels, the usefulness of pulse surveys, and other recent trends.

  • To gain a deep understanding of best practices related to pre-hire and post-hire assessments, such as reasons for use, the type of assessments used, when administered, the metrics used to measure the effectiveness, and impact on business outcomes.
  • To determine how organizations select an assessment provider solution, the roles involved in the decision, provider competencies, and technology solution features
