2 Jan 2021
“She looked so good on paper.”
Sound familiar? In your haste to fill an open position to keep your company running smoothly, you make a hiring decision that turns out to be a big mistake.
If this is the case, you are certainly not alone, and the problem isn’t a lack of judgment. A US Chamber of Commerce Foundation study released earlier this year confirms what many of us on the front lines of recruiting candidates already know: There is a skills gap in the current labor market. The study found 48% of respondents lamenting that candidates lack the skills to fill the jobs at hand.
In an uncertain economic environment where every employee must perform at the highest level – it’s important to understand what you can do to uncover top talent.
Sourcing job candidates is a valuable skill and often the most valuable step in the entire recruitment process.
