Hires by Department

What is Hires by Department?

This metric gives you the number of hires you have made by department over your targeted recruitment period.

How to calculate Hires by Department?

# of hires in each department across the same period of time = Hires by Department


Unlike Hires by Month, understanding Hires by Department, particularly if you have targets per team, will help you identify if your hiring strategy is effective across the business or needs to be adjusted depending on your progress. It can also help you identify if one department has a higher volume of hires which is may be distorting


Depending on the size of your company and recruitment goals you may wish to consider how you either identify or exclude replacements/backfill hires, promotions or internal transfers from one department to another, as these may inflate your hiring targets.
