Establish a set of strategic recruiting KPIs that meaningfully measure HR performance and positively impact your organization.  After this session, you’ll be able to:
     •   Define the leading KPIs that address the goals of business leaders
     •   Identify the metrics to provide different stakeholders to help them make better decisions
