Session Title: Building a Better Workforce: The Need for Skills-Based Hiring

General Assembly partners with a network of over 5,000 employers on a variety of levels - from curriculum creation to leveling up their employees to hiring. We know employers face a consistent challenge: finding and retaining qualified talent.

By assessing not only experience but also competencies, skills, and indicators of grit and potential,​ ​rather than what’s on a resume alone, companies can more accurately identify candidates that fit their​ ​needs with the potential to succeed, while broadening the potential talent pool.​

Join us for a discussion on the history and relevance of skills-based hiring and how General Assembly is working to tackle this ever-pressing issue. See a demo of our Credential platform and learn how employers are using this to help identify the talent they need - and how you can get involved too.
