Hiring has undergone a fundamental shift in recent years, as companies are finding it more difficult to fill key positions with the right people. Several trends have contributed to this shift. The modern workforce is far more transient than generations past, so organizations are putting more emphasis on recruiting their next great candidate than developing them from within.


It has gotten so out of control, that according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 95% of external hiring is done to fill existing positions due to people voluntarily leaving. This shortage of candidates has left HR in a difficult situation.

Talent is likely to be the main driver of business success in the coming years, and HR needs to drive a strategic hiring process that actively seeks out candidates with the right competencies to support the achievement of business goals.

The best way to explore a candidate’s skill set and fit for a job position is by using behavioral or competency-based interviewing techniques.
