Understanding the Market: How we help our clients find the right competencies
23. February, 2024

You are about to hire a new employee for a key role in your company. But how do you find the perfect match among many talented candidates? What competencies should you attribute to the candidate profile to meet your needs and desires?

In an ever-shifting and competitive job market, it is crucial for companies to find the right talents to fill key roles. At Unique Human Capital, our commitment is not only to match candidates with positions but also to understand the dynamics of the market and the unique challenges companies face to ensure we can find the right competencies to fill our clients’ key roles.

When a company faces the recruitment of a new employee, it is essential to understand that recruitment is not just about replacing existing competencies with new, identical ones. In today’s constantly changing job market, staying updated on new trends and tendencies that cause competency requirements to change is important. Because what used to be the required competencies for a certain role might not be suitable for the market today.

According to a survey from Dansk Erhverv on addressing recruitment challenges, 40% of the participating companies have hired employees with a different competency profile than they originally sought. This could be due to setting too specific competency requirements without thinking flexibly or innovatively about the competency profile or not having insight into how the market and the distribution of competencies among candidates are at the given time. This figure reflects the need for flexibility and adaptability in the recruitment process, and this is where our expertise comes into play.

Statistik om rekrutteringsudfordringer fra Dansk Erhverv

More than 20 years of experience in finding the right competencies

Right from the start of the recruitment process, we collaborate closely with our clients to understand their needs and requirements for a given position. This involves a thorough analysis of the job description, including specific tasks, responsibilities and desired competencies.

Based on this analysis, we advise our clients on how best to define and adapt the ideal competency profile based on our expertise and experience across industries. This also means that in some cases, the competency profile may look different than what the company initially envisioned to reach a larger pool of candidates that encapsulate the competencies that the company is seeking.

The statistic from Dansk Erhverv highlights that companies are willing to adapt to the market and the necessary competency requirements to find the right candidate. The statistic also shows that 41% of companies have changed workflows and routines to accommodate candidates’ needs and desires. As a recruitment agency, we can advise our clients on meeting candidates’ competency levels by being flexible and proactive in the approach and ensuring that the company obtains the necessary competencies to fulfil its organisational goals.
