How to Attract the Right Talent (Skillful Talent Series)

Tue 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM

It's no secret that, as the region's unemployment rate remains at historic lows, small businesses are struggling to find the skilled talent they need to remain competitive; according to Denver Metro SBDC's recently published Colorado Small Businesses Survey, more than half of companies with revenue over $500,000 reported that a lack of qualified workers was a challenge to their growth.

That's why we are bringing you the Skillful Talent Series training's, designed to help employers find, hire and train talent with a focus on skills instead of proxies for skills like previous titles and degrees, thereby deepening your companies' talent pools, reducing time to hire and improving retention and diversity.

Talent Series 101: Attract the Right Talent

Is a tight market keeping you from filling positions? Unfilled positions cost companies like yours an average of $800,000 a year. Yet most job postings use requirements that create barriers eliminating more than 95% of possible applicants. These job postings contribute to costly losses in productivity and difficulty in attracting the right candidates.

At Skillful Talent Series 101: Attract the Right Talent, you'll learn how to:

  • Hire highly skilled people to increase your company's productivity
  • Attract great candidates for hard-to-fill positions with straightforward changes to your job postings
  • Diversify your team by reducing bias and barriers during recruitment

Don't let the low unemployment or growing skills gap prevent you from hiring a great staff. By focusing on skills, not credentials, you'll staff hard-to-fill positions, reduce time-to-hire, and increase your company's diversity.
