Are you trying to build cohesive teams? Then, skill-based hiring can revolutionize your recruitment process.  Host William Tincup speaks with Josh Millet, CEO and co-founder of Criteria, about the power of skills-based hiring. Millet's insights and expertise provide a refreshing perspective on how skills-based hiring can transform traditional recruitment practices and drive long-term success in organizations.

Millet explains how Criteria's talent success business model goes beyond pre-employment assessments to offer a comprehensive suite of tools for building and optimizing teams. He emphasizes the importance of evaluating a candidate's potential to acquire new skills rather than solely focusing on their existing knowledge or educational background. Millet also discusses the need to devalue over-reliance on college degrees and experience as indicators of future success, highlighting the potential for skills-based hiring to level the playing field and promote diversity.

By shifting the focus to a candidate's abilities and skill potential, organizations can make smarter hiring decisions and build cohesive, high-performing teams for long-term success.
