ATS Completion Rate


Applicant Tracking System (ATS) Completion Rate is a key performance indicator (KPI) that measures the quality of your ATS data. ATS Completion Rate is calculated by taking the total number of data points entered for an application process and divide it by all total possible data points to gather. This formula can be applied across the entire process, or down to individual stages. The higher the completion percentage the better.

Few ATS products offer this type of reporting out of the box. A manual technique for measuring this would be to identify six to seven pieces of consequential information for each application (i.e. candidate name, resume, interview feedback forms) and track across the hiring process.

ATS Completion rates can be beneficial to analyze at the company level as well as down to the individual role level. Similarly, ATS Complete Rate can be used as a KPI to evaluate the performance of individuals on your team who are responsible for maintaining such data.
