Innovative collaboration will provide unique career advancement opportunities to help close skills gap in staffing industry
The American Staffing Association, in collaboration with Capella Learning Solutions and CareerBuilder, today announced an innovative solution to promote staffing as a profession, and create a new supply of job-ready, junior-level recruiters for the staffing and recruiting industry. The RightSkill recruiter program was introduced at Staffing World, the ASA annual convention and expo.
RightSkill offers a new approach to talent development and acquisition by pairing real-time labor data with competency-based online learning and rigorous assessments to create a new supply of job-ready talent.
The RightSkill recruiter program builds a qualified talent pool of candidates for the staffing industry, changing the way firms find, hire, and train career-minded recruiters. The RightSkill team hand selects job candidates before enrolling them into the “Essentials of Recruiting for the Staffing Industry” learning experience, where they gain the skills and knowledge to be job-ready. To ensure each candidate’s job readiness, after completion of the course, they must pass a series of comprehensive assessments to verify their aptitude and meet with a RightSkill career coach.
“The demand for staffing and recruiting services is growing at an accelerated pace, a trend that will continue into the foreseeable future with so many companies championing the need for more flexibility in how they staff their departments,” said Kyle Braun, president of CareerBuilder’s staffing and recruiting group. “The RightSkill program will help create a pool of job-ready candidates to fill recruiter roles to address expanding market demands.”
The RightSkill recruiter program was developed with guidance from ASA and its member companies to ensure upon completion of the program, that candidates are ready to embark on a staffing career.
“Because demand currently exceeds supply, staffing and recruiting firms are experiencing increased challenges in recruiting qualified corporate talent, and especially job-ready recruiters,” said Richard Wahlquist, ASA president and chief executive officer. “The RightSkill recruiter program is a perfect complement to the ASA staffing as a career initiative to educate job seekers about the excellent career opportunities within the staffing industry.”
