KPI Details : Job Acceptance Rate
Job Acceptance Rate measures the number of job offers accepted in relation to the total number of job offers extended over the same period of time. A relatively low value for this metric is typically related to a few common factors, including inefficient interview processes and communications (i.e., not letting the candidate know what is expected during and after an interview, not providing the candidate with relevant information during the interview process, etc.), poor offers on the part of the company (includes what the candidate may feel to be sub-par payment, benefits, etc.), and long cycle times dedicated to hiring decisions. Each of these factors can lead to longer offer submission cycle times, candidate dissatisfaction with company offers and increased candidate frustration which can vastly increase the chance that the candidate will reject the offer put forth by a company and instead accept a position in another company.
