How Crowd Works
The initial release of Crowd is a benchmarking data tool that allows you to choose a job type and geographic location to view comparative data for profiling the ideal hire, sourcing qualified candidates, and recruiting efficiently. Crowd data is generated by analyzing the activities of thousands of companies recruiting for tens of thousands of jobs. The returned insights are Jazz’s autogenerated benchmark data.
Crowd will only show you the geographic locations where we believe we have enough data for the insights to be statistically relevant, and we will never show data in a geographic location if the data set is so small an individual company might be identifiable. Crowd will never reveal an individual company’s data—only new statistical data that we’ve autogenerated over a large data set.
Profiling the Ideal Hire
It’s important to profile the ideal hire so you can recognize a Performer when you see one. Crowd shows you the top ranked skills of candidates who have applied for a certain job. You’ll also learn what educational institutions provide the most qualified candidates for that job. Armed with this information, you can create a job description that’s more specific for attracting an exemplary candidate, search your candidate database for critical skills, and determine what colleges and universities should be the focus of your campus recruiting efforts for that type of job.
Sourcing Qualified Candidates
You’re most likely recruiting from multiple sources. But are you getting the most value for your money? Crowd helps you build a strategy that balances volume of applicants and quality of candidates, depending on the specific needs of a particular job. You’ll find out the top sources that provided the greatest volume of applicants. You can also compare this information with the sources that provided the number of applicants that were most likely to be screened positively. In addition, you can learn what sources provided the most candidates who were hired.
Finally, Crowd helps you improve your recruitment planning by revealing how long the recruiting process takes for various jobs, and provides statistics for the average time to filla position, which is the average number of days from when a job is opened to when you mark the candidate as being hired; the average time to hire, which is the average number of days from when a candidate applied to reaching key recruiting milestones; and median applicants before hire, which is the median number of candidates it takes to fill a selected job category compared to applicants in all job categories.
