Talent Acquisition Metrics
Our Talent Metrics approach is to support our leader’s ability to define talent needs, drive decisions using data, and attract & retain the best external and internal talent. We strive to create an amazing candidate to teammate experience, and data drives continuous iteration!
The two pillars of our Talent Metrics strategy include:
- Transparency into real-time data through self-service reporting tools
- Adhoc reporting and insights
- TalentWall: Provides key recruiting metrics in real-time to all teammates
- Ashby: Adhoc reporting tool. We leverage this to analyze DEI efforts and targeted business objectives.
- Greenhouse Reporting: We leverage our ATS data and reports for interview calibration, the Requisition Report, and more.
- Open Roles - Tracking Sheet: This is an Excel doc showing our quarterly open roles This report ensures we hire the right talent at the right time, allowing our BUs to execute on goals.
What we measure:
Diversity lifecycle: applications, recruited, interviewed, offers extended & offers accepted
- The talent acquisition workflow metrics are specific to candidates who self-identified as coming from an underrepresented group.
- Diversity refers to the characteristics of the people who make up Sourcegraph and how they identify. Race, gender, age, ethnicity, religion, national origin, disability, and sexual orientation are some examples of how the data might be categorized when looking at Sourcegraph’s diversity.
