Skills-Based Hiring and Retention


A skills-based hiring and retention strategy is critical to building an agile workforce. Recruiting is no longer about replacing headcount as quickly as possible; talent acquisition teams must hire talent that can fuel government transformation. In this session, government leaders will share best practices for skills-based hiring, creating dynamic teams based on data-driven skills assessments, and upskilling current employees for maximum performance and job satisfaction.
