Wes Insights 2023: The Recruitment Paradox
There is too narrow a picture of what skills and competencies look like and where to find them, both in the business world and in the public sector. This leads to a heightened notion that it is difficult to find the right skills, according to "The Recruitment Paradox – The Importance of Diversity for Tomorrow’s Skills Supply" (2023), the most recent Wes Insights report. Rethinking and broadening how competencies and experiences are perceived, looking outside one's own industry, and better harnessing the value of transferable skills are effective ways to rectify the situation. The study is based on a survey answered by over 800 managers and leaders in the private and public sectors. The report concludes with five recommendations to leadership on how to rectify the situation.
