While 35% of small enterprises said the biggest hurdle to hiring staff was a short supply of expertise, this figure increased to 42% for medium-sized firms.
Large firms are not exempt from these obstacles either. Our own research shows that 40% of large companies also say that finding talent is their biggest problem. The research showed most organisations only focus on skills, experience and education – or hard criteria – when evaluating candidates.
They aren’t including “soft” criteria as part of the job requirements, such as
personalities and behaviors, and are unintentionally shrinking their own candidate pool.
While behavioral drives and motivational needs can be more challenging to
identify than hard criteria, they can be a key leverage point for SMEs to tap into a wider pool of talent.
