About the event

We’re pleased to invite you to an upcoming webinar, hosted by the I/O Community and sponsored by Monark, focusing on an essential topic in today’s competitive job market: skill-based hiring.

In this informative webinar Dr. Joseph Schmidt and Dr. Joshua Bourdage - both of whom have made significant contributions to the fields of recruitment and talent management - will provide insights and share tactics aimed at improving hiring strategies, focusing on the effective identification and development of talent.

Organizations aiming for effective recruitment, hiring and promotion often miss out on hidden talent due to a growing trend called "qualification inflation." This trend involves the increasing demand for specific degrees and experiences that were once unnecessary, leading to the exclusion of potentially skilled candidates and higher recruitment costs. Skill-based hiring -  focusing on candidates' actual skills rather than their formal qualifications - offers a solution. However, this can be challenging to implement. This presentation will explore practical methods for adopting skill-based hiring effectively.

The key takeaways will include:

  • How to advertise jobs to focus on necessary skills and attract hidden talent, especially for applicants who have transferable skills from other industries or atypical experience profiles (e.g., employment gaps);
  • Methods to efficiently screen larger applicant pools for skills without primarily relying on degree or experience proxies;
  • In-depth technical and behavioural skill assessments to make final hiring decisions.

This webinar promises to be an invaluable resource for HR professionals, hiring managers, and anyone keen on refining their approach to recruitment and hiring. Don't miss out on this opportunity to gain a competitive edge in talent acquisition. Register now to secure your spot! Feel free to also invite colleagues or peers who may also benefit from this session.
