Recently, acquiring talent has shifted focus from the right job fit to the right skill fit. What are the requirements of skill-based hiring and how are organisations adapting to this changing requirement?
PA The nature of jobs and skills requirements are changing rapidly. The fast pace of transformation is forcing business leaders to quickly identify looming skills gaps and prepare their workforces for the future, giving clear direction to employees on how to build the skills they will need to thrive. Getting ahead of these skills gaps will require investment, leadership, and clear communication about the effects of trends like digitisation and automation on future skills needs.
For over a century, jobs have been the dominating structure for work-defining how work is done, by whom, how it is managed and led, and how workers are supported by every HR practice, from hiring to compensation to career progression to performance management. It’s so embedded in everything companies do that people rarely stop to question it at all.
