In today’s hiring landscape, there’s little room for error. This added pressure means hiring teams often struggle to understand how they can improve hiring outcomes and meet hiring targets by the end of the year. But that’s because you can’t get better if you don’t know what you need to improve – or how to improve it. Teams need to understand what their hiring goals are and should be. When they don’t, they’ll underperform and improvement will seem like a distant, unattainable dream.
That’s where Greenhouse Goals come in.
Greenhouse Goals exists to create transparency on how to achieve these outcomes, accountability for the work being done, and guidance on opportunities for improvement for all core users.
–Robby Perdue, Lead Product Manager for Goals and Group Product Manager at Greenhouse

By allowing them to set their own hiring goals and easily track their progress, there’s more visibility and shared accountability across the organization. Plus, using reports guided by these hiring goals empowers hiring teams to routinely evaluate their processes and identify gaps to drive a more efficient hiring process.

Here’s how it works
Easily set goals for yourself or your entire company. You can choose from a list of possible goals, select your target and frequency – and you’re off!
There are two types of goals:
Company or department goals are performance targets set by site administrators for entire teams or even the organization as a whole. Some examples might be:
Individual goals are targets for core activities, set by individuals. Some examples might be:
Track your progress
Once you set up your goals, they’ll appear in your dashboard right when you log in to your Greenhouse account. Your dashboard will show all your goals – both company and individual – along with your attainment against those targets based on the frequency set. You can then use your goals to easily see where you might need to focus your efforts for that day or the week ahead.
Measure your success
View your performance and your team’s performance over time using reports. Use data and hiring metrics, not intuition, to identify performance gaps and blind spots. Share these reports with stakeholders and leadership to highlight areas for improvement – and to celebrate team successes.
