Measure, iterate, and improve every part of your hiring process
Individual goals are crucial to hiring efficiency as they drive accountability and promote a vision to attain for individual contributors.
You can set individual goals to track your progress across objectives like the number of candidates added, the number of candidates hired, and more.
Individual goals work best when your hiring team's responsibilities are set. For instance, the Candidates hired goal gives credit to a job's recruiter. An individual needs to be assigned to the recruiter role in order to track their goal attainment.
