When looking at possible hires we tend to look at their resumes and applications and see their skill sets (or at least what they claim their skill sets to be). Occasionally we might even see something in their resume that they we didn’t expect but which could be extremely helpful
On the flip side, do you ever look at your current employees resumes, or skill sets? Might they have something that is completely unrelated to their current job that could prove to be helpful to your organization? I’m not sure what the best way to do this would be but even if it’s someone we speak with regularly, they might have a skill, a passion or something that would help everyone.
Just something to think about.
Have a great day!
