Why Value-Based Interviewing?
The future of SCORE depends on recruiting for team players, not just functional players. Sixty-two percent of our clients interact with mentors once and never come back. Many chapters struggle with leadership succession that jeopardizes the sustainability of the organization. We need volunteers who embody SCORE’s mission, vision, values, SLATE, and the behaviors our clients have outlined as key. This is important not just for volunteers who mentor clients, but all volunteers at SCORE.
Why? Deloitte recently launched a study of people challenges in business, Deloitte Human Capital Trends 2017, and the results were notable. Among the 10,000+ companies who responded (in over 140 countries), the top issue on leaders’ minds is “actively building organizational ecosystems and networks” to meet the demands of the workforce and business climate today. The conclusion, after
almost a year of study, is that today’s digital world of work has shaken the foundation of organizational structure, shifting from the traditional functional hierarchy to one Deloitte calls a “network of teams.” This new model of work is forcing us to change job roles and job descriptions; rethink careers and internal mobility; emphasize skills and learning as keys to performance; redesign how we set goals and reward people, and change the role of leaders.
