Show us what you can do: Why companies are shifting from traditional hiring practices to a skills-based, capabilities-driven mindset as their newest competitive advantage
Join us on Wednesday, June 23rd at 2:00 pm EST for a live webinar
The nature of work has changed—skills are the new currency. This move sees hiring managers, L&D leaders, university career offices, and learners at every stage of their careers considering specific skills and competencies as the key requirements for employability.
While some jobs will require a degree by necessity, degree programs alone cannot guarantee that employees and candidates possess the requisite skills to succeed in their roles and contribute to your organization. A skills-based mindset not only helps your organization to clarify the business needs you want to hire for or develop through your L&D programs, but also opens the talent pool and creates opportunities for those without four-year degrees or who have employment gaps in their employment histories.
