You're hiring for a key technical role at your startup, but the candidates just aren't fitting the bill. Their experience looks good on paper, but they lack the soft skills and mindset to thrive in a fast-paced, agile environment. The truth is, traditional hiring methods focused on degrees, certifications, and tenure just don't cut it anymore. What you need is a way to assess competencies - the skills, behaviors, and attitudes that truly define success in a role.
Competency models are transforming how leading IT startups hire by mapping the DNA of a role. Forget the buzzwords on a resume. By defining the competencies that matter for a position, you can identify, assess, and hire candidates who have what it really takes to hit the ground running. If you want to build an IT team that can keep up with the pace of change, competency-based hiring is the way to go. Read on to learn how competency models can help you find, evaluate and onboard IT talent built to scale.
