Measuring the quality of hires is a valuable effort. But what if your organization isn't attracting quality candidates? Does it follow logically that quantity equals quality? Numbers alone will not improve your talent strength. Employers with the most hiring success recognize the primary goal of recruiting to be that of an activity: growing networks of known, high-potential candidates.

Most employers state without hesitation that the best hires come from referrals. Recruiting, then, should be developing a systematic way to help their hiring managers to know more people.
