Beyond Paper Credentials: Caber Partner's Founder Ray Ferguson Speaks to the Business Times

June 1, 2018


When hiring executive staff, how open would you be, as an employer, to ditching altogether academic qualifications as an indicator of cognitive ability and potential? How would you assess an aspiring employee?


BUSINESSES reward risk. We all do due diligence on a business before investing.


Likewise, HR and management need to step up and dig deep before recruiting and be objective and pragmatic. That means it can be perfectly fine to hire for roles where the candidate may not have all the paper qualifications that would normally apply.


Asking candidates to demonstrate skills they have rather than relying on the certificates bestowed upon them is the best way to hire smartly. Sure, it is time-consuming but anything as important as growing your business requires time and effort.
