Skillful Talent Series: 101 & 102

Colorado enjoys one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country, making it difficult for businesses to find the skilled talent they need to reach their goals.
Skillful Talent Series shows how companies can hire right the first time by focusing on candidates’ skills instead of background in the hiring process. In addition to helping companies find candidates most likely to flourish in a given role, a focus on skills can also reduce time-to-hire, increase diversity, and improve retention.
