While in general there is a need for new skills and employees in many businesses, according to our partner SAP, tech roles are even harder to fill. Such roles become more demanded as more companies undertake key digital transformation initiatives for which they need those skilled employees.

 

That is why skills-based hiring is on the rise. “New-Collar” workers become a relevant, new breed of candidates for IT positions. With skill-based hiring, the experience of a candidate has a greater significance than their degrees. Such New-Collar workers gained experiences through nontraditional education paths such as software boot camps, high school technical programs or internships.

 

Where an increase in volume of applicants through this new way of hiring becomes an issue, Artificial Intelligence can help with matching candidates with job profiles.
