The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) questionnaire is a set of federally-approved questions about race, gender, veteran status, and disability status.

Greenhouse Recruiting's EEOC report allows your organization to view an anonymized report of this data to see how many total and hired candidates fall into each category.

EEOC report

Note: It is not possible to associate responses to EEOC questions with individual candidate applications. All candidate demographic data is anonymized for compliance purposes and to reduce unconscious bias in the hiring process. Your organization's Greenhouse Recruiting users can only view anonymized candidate demographic data. In addition, Greenhouse Technical Support cannot access candidate demographic data unless given explicit consent by your organization.

Click Filters and more to apply filters to further refine your report.

The EEOC report can be filtered by the following:

  • Job
  • Job status
  • Department
  • Office
  • User
  • Hiring team role
  • Custom job field
  • Date applied
  • Stage
  • Rejection reason
  • Include migrated candidates

Note: When you filter the EEOC report by stage, the report will display all applicants who are currently in the current stage. Since this filter will only include candidates who completed a current state, the hired column will always display as zero, because they were moved into the offer process but never moved out of the hired stage.

Click Apply after applying any filters to your report.

Note: By default, the date applied filter is set to the current year.
