Adra's Recruiting & DEI Dashboard for Startups

In high-growth phases, recruiting performance and effectiveness is one of the top priorities for Adra. In her monthly mission control center, she visualizes recruiting data to understand channel effectiveness, managing hiring speed to meet headcount targets and evaluating the impact of investments and activities in recruiting on the quantity and quality of candidates. To sustain long-term success for the organization, she keeps a close eye on diversity, equity and inclusion data to foster a diverse and thriving organization.

Adra’s dashboard provides insights into:

  • Measuring the impact of investments in recruiting on the quantity, speed and quality of hiring
  • Identifying bottlenecks in recruiting funnel by analyzing the conversion rates in each step
  • Analyzing recruiting speed over time for the various departments to manage expectations with hiring managers
  • Identifying gender pay gaps across various departments to improve DEI practices

What does this dashboard include?


Conversions of applications in recruiting funnel refer to the rate at which candidates progress through the various stages of the recruitment process. Each stage of the funnel, from initial application to final hiring decision, represents a conversion point. The conversion rate at each stage measures the percentage of candidates who move from one stage to the next.

By measuring conversions, organizations can identify stages where there is a high drop-off rate. For instance, if many candidates fail to progress from the interview II stage to the offer stage, this may indicate issues with the interview process or criteria. Measuring conversions of candidates in the recruiting funnel is a critical component of a data-driven recruitment strategy. It allows organizations to pinpoint inefficiencies, improve candidate experience, make informed hiring decisions, and ultimately enhance the overall effectiveness of their recruitment process.



Recruiting Speed refers to the time it takes to complete the recruitment process from the initial job posting to the time when a new hire is fully productive. It is often measured in terms of time-to-fill (the number of days it takes to fill a position after it is opened) and time-to-hire (the number of days from when a candidate enters the pipeline to when they accept the job offer).

Measuring recruiting speed is not only crucial for optimizing the recruitment process, enhancing the candidate experience, and maintaining a competitive edge in the talent market, but especially to manage expectations by hiring managers on how long it takes to fill this position. This is critical to build a realistic headcount plan.


Number of applications refers to the metric that tracks the total count of job applications received by an organization during a specific time period. 

Measuring the number of applications over time is a vital metric for understanding the effectiveness of recruitment efforts, the attractiveness of the employer brand, and the overall health of the talent pipeline. It enables organizations to make data-driven decisions, optimize resource allocation, and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their hiring processes.


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion


Adjusted Pay Gap refers to the difference in compensation employees by gender after accounting for variables such as job role, level of experience, etc. This metric aims to isolate the portion of the pay gap that cannot be explained by these factors, highlighting potential disparities due to discrimination or bias.

Measuring the adjusted pay gap is crucial for identifying and addressing underlying pay gaps that cannot be explained by objective factors. This metric supports fair compensation practices, enhances employee trust and engagement, attracts diverse talent, ensures legal compliance, and ultimately contributes to a more inclusive and high-performing organization.
