Is Skills First Hiring Possible for SMEs?

Implementing a skills-first approach for SMEs may seem challenging, but it’s not impossible. In this video, we discuss simple steps that SMEs can take to prioritise skills in their hiring process. By analysing job requirements and identifying the top three skills needed, SMEs can focus on sourcing candidates with those specific skills. Engaging with hiring managers and asking the right questions is crucial in understanding the skills needed for each job. We also share an example from Salesforce, where they successfully implemented skills-based hiring by removing qualifications and focusing on key skills through video applications. This approach not only increased their talent pool but also resulted in a more diverse workforce. Watch the video to learn more about implementing a skills-first approach for SMEs.
