Integrating attitudes into recruitment and training

  • Talent Management
  • Training


Context of the problem

  • Like many businesses, this leading Belgian industrial company was struggling to recruit talent.
  • For technical professions (which are experiencing severe recruitment shortages), the market is so stretched that companies need to be open-minded and get creative if they want to find good potential candidates. But it’s not only technical skills that have to be considered, also attitude and behavior. But how do you assess them? How do you integrate them into the onboarding process? How can they help you hire promising profiles who will then be integrated into a training program? What defines a “creative” or “solution-oriented” person, for example?

Difficulties in assessing attitudinal criteria

  • e.g. interpersonal skills, cooperation, commercial attitude, etc.

Onboarding mindset

  • Technical onboarding is relatively easy to set up for newcomers, make sure the existing employees will ‘breathe’ the corporate culture?
