Once Peter Drucker rightly said: “What gets measured gets managed."    The same is

applicable for any of the HR Process measurement and Process assessment. It tells how effective,

efficient and impactful your HR Process is!


The main motive behind this blog is to enlist  Key Performance Indicators (KPI) focused on

Recruiting part. Also, I would like to invite HR Experts, SCN community members (especially

SuccessFactors Recruiting Management, Recruiting Marketing, Recruiting Posting, Analytics people)

to suggest if they have come across any other KPIs. I'll add those KPIs in this blog in next version

with due credits to the contributors!       Also, this blog is an open discussion forum for

all  SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting admins, consultants, experts (RCM, RMK, RPO) to discuss how

they can achieve below KPIs in Recruiting dashboards if it is a standard feature or any custom

development required?
