Why are you expected to produce metrics about your career in your CV these days? What if your contribution to your company (or society) isn't measurable by a percentage? Works fine for "reduced payroll overheads by 20%" but what am I supposed to say - "Increased machine generated metadata for radio content by 100%?"
