Culture vs. Skills


If you haven’t caught our podcast series yet, RecruitingDaily’s William Tincup & Talemetry skimmed the halls of HRTech2019 for insight.  Cultural compatibility was a highlight, along with soft skills and core competencies.

We asked everyone the same question: What skills do you feel we’re hiring for in 2025?

And we recorded the answers.  So what does that mean for you?

He explains that companies are already beginning to recruit those who don’t possess prior training needed for the position.

They do, however, fit well into the organization’s culture, and the company is willing to invest in those people.

Bill has already seen this happen with his daughter, who was recruited after an internship and then enrolled into a Java training program. Companies will teach hard skills when they see a candidate that is adaptable and willing to take on new challenges.

We’d give you more, but you have to listen to the podcast for Bill’s full scope of 2025.
