As I began scanning articles on the internet, looking for inspiration for the blog post I am supposed to be writing for work, I’m was hard pressed to decide on a topic. But as I continued to read blogs and articles relevant to the recruiting world, I began to notice a theme.

There are many good articles floating around about recruiting and recruitment processing, but many of them come back to one idea….Data is King.

How data is collected and used can make or break a business – large or small.  In recruiting, data is crucial to filling positions in a timely and efficient manner.  How you collect your data, how it is stored, what data is collected, and the insights you can glean from that data are all elements that go into using it effectively.

Most recruiting companies track data beginning when a candidate applies to a position through a job board or ATS.  But what about the candidates that are sourced by the recruiters.  How do you track the frequent contact and time expended BEFORE they apply?

HireGate, a Recruitment/Candidate tracking software, tracks candidates prior to becoming applicants.  From the first time a recruiter sources a potential candidate and reaches out to gauge interest, HireGate tracks the information.  Every contact, every phone call from the first outreach to the final disposition – HireGate tracks and reports on it all.
