Skills-Based Hiring and What Candidates Expect to See in a Job Spec

When used in the right ways, the job profile is another handy tool in the HR toolbox. Job profiles can provide a good explanation of the components of a job and what you are seeking in an employee when they are posted with your job openings on your recruiting website.

In this conversation, Bill Banham and I focus on how we can use job profiles in ways that recognize the changes brought on by a post-pandemic approach to employment.

Listen as we discuss how to recruit employees better, new approaches to defining jobs, and providing direction for employees with new priorities. We’ll also explore the bonus benefits of online job descriptions like their impact on your employer brand.

Our guest expert in episode three is Serge Boudreau, Founder and Co-Host of the popular Recruitment and HR podcast, The Recruitment Flex. The podcast is all things recruitment – from the latest trends, industry news, technology, helpful tips, and interviews with some of the biggest globally recognized names in the recruitment industry.
