At Gem, we know that the strongest recruiting teams—and the strongest Ops functions—run on data. The goal of Talent Operations is to give talent acquisition teams every competitive advantage in the battle for talent by creating best-in class processes and programs, eliminating inefficiencies, streamlining and scaling strategies, and optimizing outcomes.
None of this is possible without data. Numbers give recruiting teams an objective view of their efforts so they can figure out where their hiring pipelines are stuck or leaky, make quick mid-quarter pivots, forecast and capacity plan, and more. Gem gives Talent Operations all the data they need to inform their recruiting strategy. Add to this Gem’s automation and features like SLA indicators for both efficiency and collaboration, and you’ve got yourself a world-class team working in a single source of truth.
“Gem isn’t just a sourcing tool. It’s a tool to broadly buff your recruiting game in every aspect. We’ve got full-cycle recruiters using Gem right now. Our hiring managers have their hands in it.”
“Talent Pipeline reporting saves me at least an hour of time each week.”
“With Gem, we made our first hire within two months of signing the contract—and it was around 40% faster than the rest of our hires.”
Manager, People Systems & Analytics
Our customers use these capabilities to review individual performance, compare teams across departments, monitor pipelines, debug workflows, evaluate diversity recruiting initiatives, and more.
“We’re striving to increase the representation of certain employee populations across teams, roles, and levels. Gem is not only informing those targets; it’s also helping us track how we’re trending in our diversity efforts.”
“I can see where individual bottlenecks are. If a recruiter is having 20 times more phone screens for a certain hiring manager, do they fully understand what they’re recruiting for? Does the hiring manager fully know what they need and if the market aligns with it?”
Senior Recruiting Manager
“We don’t even necessarily have to use Gem’s analytics at the manager level, because Gem helps individual recruiters proactively understand their own performance.”
Recruiting Operations Manager
“Gem essentially tells me how many hours of work we’ll have to put in to suffice a new headcount. As soon as you have that data, you know whether you’re under-resourced or not. So if I need to go to leadership and say, I need more sourcers if we’re really going to hire this many people, Gem has already made the argument for me.”
Head of Business Recruiting
“Recruiters are no longer speaking anecdotally; they’re speaking with data. So they can influence upper management in ways they may not have been able to before.”
