Greenhouse Launches Tool to Streamline Processes, Improve Speed to Hire

Hourglass Goals

Hiring software company Greenhouse released new capabilities that give recruiters and hiring teams a structured way to set, track and measure their work against hiring goals. Greenhouse Goals helps talent acquisition teams set goals at an individual or company-wide level, offering greater transparency into their performance and visibility into areas of improvement.

Over half of candidates – around 58% – expect to hear back about their initial application from companies in one week or less , according to the Greenhouse Candidate Experience Report. So, companies need to consistently look for new ways to improve the hiring process. By tracking against their goals, Greenhouse said, recruiting teams can use data to see where they’re falling behind and make changes that should have a positive impact on their time-to-hire goals.

“TA teams are juggling multiple deadlines while also building strategic hiring processes every single day,” said Greenhouse Vice President of Product and Design Henry Tsai. To help address that dynamic, Greenhouse Goals is meant to help hiring teams strike a balance between identifying priority actions, setting clear expectations and offering guidance on how to improve, he said.

‘A More Strategic Way of Hiring’  

Specifically, Greenhouse Goals helps TA teams:

  • Promote shared accountability with cross-functional goals that give visibility into hiring efforts
  • Streamline processes by setting hiring objectives for improving speed to hire
  • Collaborate by aligning and tracking against unified hiring practices
  • Measure targets against established goals to drive more predictable outcomes for future hiring

“Setting goals shouldn’t just be a means to an end, it’s a more strategic way of hiring that sets a company up for success,” said Group Product Manager Robby Perdue. Greenhouse Goals is designed to give TA teams a clear understanding of the most imperative and impactful problem they are trying to solve – what’s most important for them to do in this moment. 

The tool is now available in the dashboards of Greenhouse Recruiting customers.
