Glossary of Talent Acquisition Metrics

"For quite some time now, recruiting organizations have been capturing and monitoring performance data. Additionally, they have been using benchmark data to provide an objective lens through which information can be viewed and comparisons can be made.

Standard Occupational Classification

"The 2010 Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system is used by Federal statistical agencies to classify workers into occupational categories for the purpose of collecting, calculating, or disseminating data. All workers are classified into one of 840 detailed occupations according to their occupational definition. To facilitate classification, detailed occupations are combined to form 461 broad occupations, 97 minor groups, and 23 major groups. Detailed occupations in the SOC with similar job duties, and in some cases skills, education, and/or training, are grouped together."
