The world of work is shifting, which present special challenges for firms looking to hire and develop quality team members. Fortunately, there is a way to leverage the power of standards and competency development tools to mitigate some of the uncertainty and experimental elements of bringing on new talent. By adhering to a strong standard internally, firms can reduce their chances of making poor hires and increase their odds of growing top performers.
The modern staffing climate and business environment combine to make firms feel as though hiring and developing staff will be a continual struggle. Yet there is no need to feel like a victim of forces beyond one’s control. Instead, by stepping forward with a solid plan, it is possible to trim costs and improve the talent base.
