What do you look for in a job candidate? Skills, experience, and education are probably your priorities. But what if there was another option – a way you could know that a candidate will fulfill their role and support your business because they stay on top of the latest technology standards and trends?

Now there is, with the right certification. Certification is a marker of foundational knowledge – and continued learning. So, when a candidate comes to you with a respected, up-to-date technology certification, you can trust that they are among the best at what they do.

Win the competition for top talent

As the cloud becomes increasingly pervasive, more partners are looking for talented consultants who are certified and willing to stay current on this new and evolving technology. This makes for a significantly more competitive talent market. On top of that, candidates and employees have more needs and demands than ever. It’s never been harder to find and retain the right talent. Certification equips you with the tools you need to win the ongoing war for talent in two ways – hiring highly qualified employees and enhancing your existing workforce.

Find the top talent: Certification provides at-a-glance insight into which candidates are highly skilled and motivated. For example, to receive a certification in SAP solutions, a candidate must pass a rigorous and comprehensive exam from SAP. Unlike a physician or certified accountant, technology experts don’t need certification to practice in their field, so a technology certification speaks volumes about those who have received it. The certification says that this candidate has gone out of their way to educate themselves on the latest in SAP technology.

Create your own top talent: You may have some of the best in the business working for your company, but if they aren’t certified, how are your customers supposed to know your employees are a cut above the rest? Customers today increasingly look for certifications. This reassures them that your business can provide the up-to-date expertise they need. This is because up-to-date certification requires continuous learning to pass the latest exam.

On top of that, customers are looking toward the cloud to solve their greatest business challenges and enable their digital transformations. Customers like cloud-based solutions because developers are constantly updating these solutions to meet customers’ needs. But this means that your business must do more to stay on top of these changes as cloud technology evolves.

So, when you hear your peers say that experience is what matters most when choosing a new job candidate, think twice. The basis for that experience – especially if it’s cloud technology – is changing. A candidate who has recently taken an online exam and received a certification from a reputable certification organization has proven that they are committed to advancing their own knowledge and skills and staying current with the latest in technology.
