CEO’s from the fastest growing US companies can often be found saying their biggest recruitment challenge is in finding someone who can do the job adequately. If you’re in the situation of needing to hire for your own business, here are 3 steps you can take to close the skills gap:
- Don’t get obsessed with specific experience, rather identify the skills and talents needed to do the job and be open to those outside the industry who possess those skill sets.
- Once you identify the skill set needed for the job, analyse alternate industries with labour who may possess those skills.
- Set up an evaluation system to whittle down potential candidates into those who would fit the role strongly.
