Joining Propensity

Joining propensity is a metric used in recruitment to determine the probability or inclination of a candidate toward accepting an offer and facilitating successful conversion. Joining propensity is influenced by many factors, such as job role, compensation, company culture, candidate experience, and recruitment process. Recruiters track candidate interactions, interview performance, and recruitment-related responses to predict candidate propensity before deciding. Analysis of this useful metric is crucial to identify the limitations within the organization’s recruitment process and rectify them to retain top talents. 

Use cases:

Predicting the joining propensity of candidates can help recruiters prioritize the right candidates and design recruitment strategies to retain skilled talent. This metric is also employed to allocate hiring resources efficiently so that the candidates presenting positive attitudes toward joining the company can be nurtured well. Insights from joining propensity predictions can be effectively leveraged to make decisions regarding workforce planning, talent management, and candidate experience, which can be vital for organizational growth and success. Understanding the factors that influence candidate joining decisions will also shed light on market positioning and development opportunities. More importantly, propensity predictions are useful for tailoring the onboarding process in a way that meets the expectations of the new hires.
