5 Recruiting Metrics Your Hiring Managers Should Know

Hiring managers don’t need to know everything that is going on in recruiting, but here are some things they should know.

This event is part of the “Let’s Talk Recruiting” series where a panel of recruiting practitioners get together online and have a conversation on a variety of topics related to corporate recruiting.

In today’s conversation…
