What is Time to Fill?

The average amount of time (measured in days) elapsed between the time that an open job requisition is approved for posting and the time that the candidate accepts the offer to fill the open requisition during the measurement period.

Why should Time to Fill be measured?

Time to Fill is a common HR metric, or KPI, that measures the average number of days required by the company to fill an open job position, or requisition. As expected, a low value is sought after for this KPI. A relatively low Time to Fill both reduces overall hiring costs, and can ensure that proper organizational capacity, work quality and service levels are maintained for various departmental areas within the organization. A high Time to Fill is typically associated with inefficient, and potentially ineffective recruiting and hiring processes: ineffective user of job advertising channels, poorly-written job requisitions, non-productive recruiting staff members (and/or third-party recruiters), and cumbersome recruiting processes may all contribute to a higher than desired average Time to Fill. Sub-par pay (as compared to the average market rates) may also negatively impact Time to Fill. Time to Fill should be analyzed alongside other vital HR metrics, including Turnover Rate, Open Requisitions per Recruiter, and Cost per Hire.
