Experlio Goes Next Level to Unleash the Potential of Creative Thinkers for Employers

Introducing the first Talent Network for Creative Thinkers…

Welcome to Experlio.

Why have we introduced the first Talent Network for Creative Thinkers to the world? And what does that even mean?

As we wall know, the world around us is changing.

That’s not news any more.

Sometimes it’s nice when things don’t change, but then other times some things are in need of desperate change.

This is one of those times.

Since the emergence of digital hiring the world has been on a hamster wheel, making small  improvements to a broken system; optimising for speed and efficiency, and mistaking it with effectiveness.

Optimising the same things to go faster simply doesn’t lead to better results forever. At some point there comes the need for a better approach.

That time is now. The Skills Revolution is upon us!Sign up for the free Employer app now by visiting https://app.experlio.com

The Skills Revolution

Before the pandemic, 73% of global employers recruited junior talent based on their university grades. 

Fast forward to 2023, and that number has plummeted to a mere 37%

63% of employers now recruit based on skills.

When  a 50% change to how global employers choose to hire talent occurs, that means something!

The new yardstick for hiring is skills. And we are in the Skills Revolution, right now!

In line with this trend, Deloitte reports that 89% of HR executives now prioritize skills over job titles when deploying talent and managing careers, resulting in a remarkable 107% improvement in talent placements.

But weren’t we always recruiting for skilled people?

No.

Previously, job titles, degrees, industries etc. had plagued the minds of hiring managers. Narrowing their focus until their talent pools were so small they were left with just 1 suitable person for the role.

Hiring managers have been overwhelmed with underwhelming applications for open roles for some time now.

To save time screening applications, managers often set high watermarks on years of experience, education backgrounds etc. to remove candidates from the pool. 

While that’s commonly accepted, it misses something crucial. Resumes are often inaccurate or misleading on the most important areas – skills!

In fact, 71.6% of resume errors stem from the miscommunication of skills.

Valuable time is wasted on double-checking resume accuracy (even grammar!) and references rather than recognizing each individuals’ potential to add value to the organization.

Skills must be verified eventually, whether its before the job or on the job. Eventually it’s going to come up…

So why don’t why not focus on skills sooner?

Because it used to be harder to do that.

In the skills revolution, we’re making it easier..

It’s the dawn of a new era for Skills Transparency, and with it comes a whole range of new innovations we’re unleashing to the world.
