Release: 16.1

View As PDF

Overview

The searches and reports identified in the Common Searches & Reports article are the most commonly requested, and include this report type. To learn how to run searches and reports in the iCIMS Talent Platform, refer to the Creating a Recruiting Workflow Search article. To learn how to save a report for future use, refer to the Saving Search & Output Templates article.

The iCIMS Talent Platform enables recruiters to collect and search on specific EEO data within the system. When candidates apply for a job through an iCIMS-hosted Career Portal, they can be asked to provide voluntary EEO data such as their gender, race, disability, and veteran status. Candidates who do not wish to provide this information are able to choose the opt-out option for each question. For candidates who do self-identify, their EEO data is stored automatically within their candidate Profile. Platform users can then run searches and generate reports on the collected EEO information using the Recruiting Workflow or the Reporting Center for internal use and government agency review.
