Smart recruitment: Developing a skills-based approach to hiring tech talent

As the tech world grows in size and complexity, developers with the right technical skills are becoming both increasingly hard to find and high in demand. Due to the rapid pace of innovation, it’s hard to know if applicants have the right real-world skills to thrive in the job at hand.

Tech continues to advance, and companies must keep their tech teams properly staffed and equipped with the appropriate skills. This reality makes it increasingly likely and costly for companies to invest in the wrong candidates, exacerbating the issue at hand. Moving forward, it is paramount for companies to recruit based on the right criteria, leverage technology to execute accurate and effective assessments, and foster a culture of constant improvement and upskilling.

  • How can companies operationalise the full hiring process to focus on spotlighting key technical skills?
  • How can organisations transform technical interviews to support fair, developer-first coding tests?
  • What can leaders do to create a culture of innovation through upskilling and reskilling?

Join leaders interested in discussing the fast-changing landscape of technical hiring and the rising importance of using a skill-based people strategy to get and stay ahead.

Job titles may include Chief Human Resources Officer, Chief People Officer, Director of HR, Director of Talent Acquisition, Head of Talent, Head of Recruitment, and other decision-makers in Talent Management and Recruitment.
