Hire the Will, Teach the Skill

Hire the Will, Teach the Skill

It’s a phrase I often use with leaders at Service Express, particularly when they’re recruiting for talent at our organization.

Because Service Express is a growing company with an exceptional culture, we’re fortunate that we attract applicants with a high level of skill and aptitude in their areas of expertise.

But we don’t just hire people who can do the job.  By the time they’ve made it past our initial screening process, we’ve determined that they have both the skills and the aptitude to succeed.  We also have many candidates who rise to the top because they have an advanced skill set.
