According to James Reed, chairman of Reed, an increasing number of employers are now valuing a person's mindset over their skills and he said this could become normal practice in the coming years as recruiters think of the long-term effects when hiring.
He told the Recruiter: "Mindset is the lens though which you navigate life, whereas attitude is almost superficial. Mindset also predicts earnings, and promotability."
The expert noted that bad recruitment decisions can cost companies money, and so it is important they eliminate the chances of the wrong candidates being employed, perhaps by using the services of a recruitment agency.
Meanwhile, recent research carried out by the Recruitment and Employment Confederation found that there has been a rise in the number of clients reporting an improvement in the service they receive from recruitment agencies, including sales recruitment organisations, with 93 per cent now satisfied or very satisfied.
