Hiring for Potential: Rethinking What Qualified Candidates Look Like

October 25, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


Are you struggling to find exceptional talent to fill key roles? You’re not alone. Today there are more job openings than workers to fill them, and the battle for qualified talent will only continue to intensify. Traditionally, employers have made hiring decisions based almost exclusively on the required skills of the role while seeking candidates whose experience matches their wish list of ideal traits. But that simply won’t be enough any longer. Organizations need to start hiring candidates with an eye to the future; not only who will be productive and engaged from day one, but also who will stay in the position long-term, be able to adapt to change and unexpected challenges, and who can grow into new and different positions to help the organization thrive. Hiring is more challenging now than ever, so how can companies ensure they’re hiring the professionals they need now and those they can count on in the future? The answer: hiring candidates with upskill potential.
