HR Glossary / Yield Ratio

The yield ratio is an indicator that shows the percentage of candidates who go forward from a given stage of the hiring process to another.


How to Calculate the Yield Ratio?

The yield ratio can be calculated with the following formula:

Number of candidates who successfully passed onto the next stage ÷ Number of candidates who were invited to the stage × 100

For example, a company received 50 applications for a given position. Only 10 candidates out of 50 were then contacted for a phone interview. The yield ratio of this stage is 20%: (50 ÷ 10) × 100.
