Skills have become the most crucial currency in business – and it’s become increasingly clear that the best way forward is a skills-first mindset. According to LinkedIn data, 40% of hirers on LinkedIn used skills to fill open roles, which is up 20% year-over-year. These employers are significantly more likely to find a successful hire compared to those not relying on skills as part of the hiring process.
Talent teams will need to focus on transferrable skills and potential rather than qualifications and degrees, in order to find talent faster, expand their talent pool and hire for the long-term. We’ll explore the key benefits of a skills-first approach for new hires, as well as internal mobility programmes, and give actionable advice on how to successfully build these strategies.
Join us to explore the new era in talent acquisition that harnesses the power of skills to build the workforces of tomorrow.
