The Recruiting Yield Pyramid

Recruiting yield pyramid is the historical arithmetic relationships between recruitment leads and invitees, invitees and interviews and offers made, and offers accepted.

Some employers use a recruiting yield pyramid to calculate the number of applicants they must generate to hire the required number of new employees. From experience, the firm also knows the following:

  • The ratio of offers made to actual new hires is 2 to 1.
  • The ratio of candidates interviewed to offers made is 3 to 2.
  • The ratio of candidates invited for interviews to candidates interviewed is about 4 to 3.
  • Finally, the firm knows that of six leads that come in from all its recruiting sources, only one applicant typically gets invited for an interview- a 6 to -1 ratio.
