The yield ratio is a metric used in recruiting that measures what percentage of applicants move forward in the recruiting process. For example, if a company has 100 applicants and 50 of them move on to the next stage of the recruiting process, its yield ratio would be 50%.
The yield ratio is often used to compare different companies or different recruiting methods. For example, if Company A has a yield ratio of 30% and Company B has a yield ratio of 40%, that means that more applicants are moving forward in the recruitment process at Company B. This could be because Company B’s applicant screening methods are more effective or because they have more resources to devote to the recruitment process.
