Our next BIBoss event will take place online on Thursday 5th November from 12:00 – 1.00pm. The event, titled: ‘Hiring, Keeping and Developing Talent – People Traits vs Technical Traits’, will be hosted by Dominic Brown, BI Specialist Recruiter at Corecom Consulting and delivered by Director of Analytics at Pets at Home: Martin Squires. Martin will address the following:
- Recruiting for behaviours, rather than just technical talent
- Understanding the development needs and motivations of your team
- What else will COVID change as people seek more flexibility?
“Technology departments across the country have become increasingly relied upon over the past few years, and now more than ever, which in turn has accelerated the need for technically gifted individuals with business-facing skills.
“However, all too often, hiring managers focus on technical traits when recruiting but forget to think about People / Behavioural traits and how this can add value.
“Which begs the questions…is it easier to train the technical side or behavioural side of an individual? Should we be more open-minded when hiring technical talent? How do we ensure we are investing in our staff to encourage personal development and staff retainment?”
Attendees will be able to ask Martin questions through the chat facility.
