The Global Recruiter: Craig Sweeney explores skills-first hiring

April 25, 2024

He mentioned the importance of recruiting talent with the ability to continuously learn and adapt, as it will encourage a workforce that’s more agile and resilient in the face of technological disruption. 

Sweeney added this broadened approach benefits organisations’ employees to operate in multiple functions and fill gaps and hard-to-fill areas of the workforce.
