Skill-based Approach of Hiring By QSS

Skill-based hiring is now considered to be the future of hiring. QSS Global has adopted the skilled-based way to assess the candidates to help its business partners facilitate a smooth transition to skill-based hiring from traditional pedigree hiring.

The corporate world keeps buzzing with many discussions around hiring and retaining talent, with a significant focus on educational pedigree or skill. What is more critical to an organisation when hiring for executive jobs – an individual’s academic pedigree or talent?

While educational pedigree does bring credibility to an individual’s candidature, and such candidates are seen to be high in potential, eventually, the skill-set and talent they bring to the company matters. We at QSS Global have recognized this and taken the initiative to abide by the principle of hiring based on skill rather than just educational pedigree, which could be considered an added advantage of sorts.

Skill-based hiring is now considered to be the future of hiring. Today, we discuss what skills someone needs to succeed in a particular job position rather than just considering educational pedigree. Fully understanding the trend, QSS Global has adopted the skilled-based way to assess the candidates to help its business partners facilitate a smooth transition to skill-based hiring from traditional hiring.

Initial Screening: First, we talk to the client about the specific skills they are looking for in each executive search and then incorporate those skills and competencies in our job posting. Next, we compare and review each qualification included on the list provided by the client. Candidates who meet the requirements laid on the list qualify for the second round.

Interview Process: During the interview process (online or face to face), we look beyond the education and experience of the candidate and evaluate their hard skills and soft skills, such as time management, effective communication, leadership qualities, problem-solving, etc., as per the need of the client. This has systematically helped us better understand a candidate’s ability to perform and meet the company’s expectations. Our skill-based way of hiring has successfully helped our clients get a far larger talent pool. Job seekers have more significant opportunities to work in good companies without prejudice.

With skill-based hiring, we help our clients increase their talent pool, which benefits the organizations as a whole. Our clients’ feedback has been positive, reporting that the candidates we evaluate based on their skill sets demonstrate a better understanding of their job and role within the organizations, thus yielding higher revenues.

Benefits of Skill-based hiring

Because of skill-based hiring companie’s work cultures have become more diverse, the employees feel more engaged and there is a sense of equality and equity within the workplace. The feeling of ownership has also reduced the problem of employee attrition to an extent, thus helping the companies to save a considerable amount of money, time, and effort in looking for new hires.

QSS Global has embraced this skill-based hiring methodology and imbibed it in its culture to include it in its internal hiring. For this reason, employees at QSS Global are from diverse academic backgrounds and are very skilled in their respective roles.
