Recruiting Roundtable Formally Launches Recruiting Executive Dashboard (RED(TM)), First Quality-of-Hire Management Tool for Recruiting Executives

Survey-based quality-of-hire analysis and metrics-based dashboard

allows executives to monitor and improve the recruiting process for

hiring managers and external and internal candidates across the globe

WASHINGTON & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 11, 2007--The Recruiting Roundtable, a leading provider of best practices research, executive education, and decision-support services for recruiting executives and their staff, today announced the release of its Recruiting Executive Dashboard (RED)(TM), the first quality-of-hire management tool. RED enables recruiting executives to determine how to improve the recruiting activities that have the greatest impact on recruiting outcomes and benchmark them over time. The Recruiting Roundtable is a membership program of the Corporate Executive Board (NASDAQ: EXBD).

Russ Selinger, Managing Director for the Recruiting Roundtable comments, "Organizations continue to place considerable demand on recruiting departments to do more with less and labor markets continue to be tight. In this environment, the only way to truly judge recruiting effectiveness is to benchmark against other organizations. RED helps executives do this while also giving them the ability to analyze their results across the enterprise over time. Organizations can immediately see areas of strength and areas of opportunity, and narrow in on the right changes to maintain or improve quality of hire while driving business results."

About The Recruiting Executive Dashboard (RED). RED has been designed to provide recruiting executives a way to benchmark quality of hire and recruitment process effectiveness. Today, more than 120,000 surveys have been completed and nearly 100 organizations are using the tool. The latest version of RED adds multi-lingual capabilities and a new survey focused on measuring and improving the process for internal transfers to further enhance the way executives manage and assess the success of their internal mobility programs. The enhanced benchmarking features allow executives to pick their own custom benchmark group and also provide more granular data on a particular industry, geography, or group of organizations.

    RED provides executives the following key features:

    --  Three "always on" Web surveys for each Hiring Manager,
        External Hire and Internal Hire

    --  Multiple languages such as English, French, Spanish, German,
        Italian, and more

    --  Dashboard, which tracks quarterly data for automated and
        custom benchmarks--these results can be drilled down by
        geography, level of position, function, and business unit

    --  Detailed information tracking which sourcing channels, from
        advertising to employee referral, are more effective and the
        primary reasons candidates join the organization

    --  Best practices research and a quality of hire toolkit with
        insights, tools, and programs to address areas of concern
