Working with Forecasts


Forecasts play a crucial part in the financial planning of your business. Recruitment forecasting is projecting the short-term and long-term recruitment performance of a company.

Recruitment forecasts are an important measurement of your company's growth and success. Factors such as previous recruitment forecasts and revenue, competition, economic conditions, hiring team and their performances, industry trends are considered while predicting monthly or quarterly targets. If your company meets consecutive forecasts, then you are assured that the company is growing!

Forecasts in Zoho Recruit provides a real-time insight to tracking hiring and helps your organization fine-tune the processes and monitor hiring pipeline. It provides an overall picture of the company's recruitment pipeline, as well as individual performances of the team.
