Importance of Attitude and Skills in Recruitment

Updated: Jul 24, 2023

There are many posts saying “hire for attitude not just skills”.

That is absolutely great, however it is important to remember to set the minimum skill standard for the required position and then hire for the right mindset. In entry level jobs that should be easy to do. However, when we think about this for a higher position it becomes a bit tricky. No one wishes to be led by an incompetent leader and a lack of quality skills will be apparent during the time of need. Workers will then not only question the leadership skills but will also question the people who hired this leader in the first place.

Yes, attitude is highly important. However, it needs to be complemented by the strong ability to put learnt skill into practice, not just having skill and attitude in itself.
