To leverage skills-based hiring to its fullest, hiring managers need to change how they assess candidates and interview applicants. And it starts with the right hiring tools.

Automated screening and assessments

With automated assessment software, hiring leaders can define specific candidate criteria using a comprehensive library of competencies. Then, use assessments and online tests to evaluate the skill sets that best match each role. And each candidate is evaluated the same way, ensuring that only the most qualified people move on to the next stage in the process.

Structured interviews

After candidates are assessed, the best ones move on to the interview. For a quick and fair process, hiring leaders should build their interviews with a structured interview tool. This tool offers job-related competencies, behavior-based questions, templates, and evaluation guides — allowing hiring managers to dig into competencies that actually matter.
