English term or phrase: sales dollars
An ITT service unit that basically sold high-tech labor had a goal of increasing revenue. One of their early projects was how to hire more effectively and more rapidly. They found it was taking them 105 days on average to hire new employees. The goal was 20 days. They went through the process because their ***sales dollars*** were directly impacted by how many people they had working these contracts. Not only were they able to reduce the cycle time, but they found out they got better quality people by being faster—it didn’t take the better people 105 days to find a job.

Kann ich das einfach mit "Verkaufszahlen" übersetzen?

Vielen Dank im Voraus für Eure Hilfe!
