What is a Recruitment Audit?

Before we get into the importance of recruitment process optimisation to your overall talent management strategy, let’s get some definitions squared away so we’re on the same page about what we mean.

  • Audit: An official inspection of accounts by an independent body.
  • Recruitment Audit: An official inspection of the recruitment process by an independent body.

To get the highest levels of performance from talent acquisition activities, what we refer to as “Recruitment Process Optimisation”, a thorough understanding of all the systems and processes currently in place is needed. To understand the recruitment process’ health, you need a checkup of sorts – an audit. By breaking the process into its essential steps, we can see what parts are generating meaningful ROI, what parts need fine-tuning and potentially what areas are not serving you at all and can be done away with in their entirety.
