To better understand passive candidates, you may want to combine sourcing metrics with time to hire and velocity to find out how early you need to engage them before they can come into your pipeline. Sifting our reports at Workable, Ive discovered that many of our best hires were people we had identified and started talking to at least one year before the right opening came up. When there was an opening, the time to fill was invariably short, because the right candidate was there and moved through the process swiftly. Its this kind of information that can help you plan strategically and set yourself up for success.
