6 recruitment dashboards that will keep you competitive

Imagine being able to take the pulse of your agency’s health at any given moment. To instantly know who your top performer is, where to direct your BD efforts and which talent sources just aren’t worth investing in. But here’s the biggest plus. Imagine not having to build the report yourself. Every. Single. Time!

I liken reporting to vacuuming your house. You know you need to do it but if only someone could invent something that did it for you…oh wait. That problem has been solved already.

Well, so has your reporting woes!

Still reporting like it’s 2018? Unlike some Recruitment Management Systems (RMS), which create static reports that provide a moment-in-time glimpse into your agency’s health, JobAdder’s reporting dashboards can provide constant, real-time insights. It’s not simply about recruiter metrics that focus on time to hire or positions filled. The key is understanding how these measurements intertwine with each other rather than simply in isolation. To know where to redirect your efforts and keep your agency on an upward trajectory.

The following six recruitment dashboards are the secret sauce of highly successful agencies who know how to use data-driven insights to stay ahead of the competition.


Overview Poweradder dashboard

Want a high-level view of how your business is performing? The overview dashboard provides this at an aggregated level. It gives agency owners a simple, clear look at how the business has performed within a given period as well as over a period of time. It’s not all about aggregates though, as you can also drill down and see specific details behind the trends.

Active temps & contractors

Active temps and contractors Poweradder dashboard

This recruitment dashboard provides you with a single view of all the current temp and contract work your business has on. It provides a view into when these placements are expected to end (so you know exactly who you need to contact and when), how much revenue they are expected to generate and a trend of the general performance of the business from a temp and contract perspective.

Open Jobs

Open Jobs Poweradder dashboard

The open jobs dashboard provides important information related to current open jobs. Its purpose is to enable the PowerAdder user to understand what jobs they are currently working on. It provides relevant information on the current status of open jobs, the applicants currently applying for each job and the expected value of these jobs. This recruitment dashboard enables the business to understand how much they currently have on and what they can expect to make from a revenue perspective.


Consultants Poweradder dashboard

The purpose of the Consultants dashboard is to allow agency owners to understand the performance of individual consultants as well as well as benchmark them against their peers. This can enable a business to understand which consultants are not performing as expected, which consultants are going above and beyond, as well as assist the business to audit their consultants from a KPI perspective. The screenshot above shows the main dashboard screen, with metrics on placements, applications, interviews and so on, viewable once a consultant has been selected.


Companies Poweradder dashboard

The Companies dashboard provides a look at the performance of the business broken down by their clients. It provides users with a top-level understanding of the overall performance of their clients, as well as insight into how each individual client is performing. This enables agency owners to understand which clients would be valuable to invest additional time into, which clients are underperforming, as well as surface potential clients that have been missed and could be re-engaged.


Sources JobAdder dashboard

The purpose of the Sources dashboard is to understand which acquisition channels are bringing in the best candidates, as well as advertise current jobs. It enables owners to look at where candidates are coming from, where applications are coming from and get a general understanding of the performance of sources leveraged. This enables the business to understand whether certain sources are worth continuing to either invest time and or money into, or if they should be looking for new avenues to source fresh candidates from.

Savvy businesses are getting on the data train and they’re using a Recruitment Management System that gets results. So it stands to reason that any agency focussed on growth and revenue should be paying more attention to the impact their recruiting efforts have via data-driven insights.
