How to Get Hired
We asked Alight Solutions for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
Our values –people matter, excellence every day, think forward, act now, and be real – guide us in everything we do. We look for individuals who demonstrate these values and can apply them to the work they do. In addition, we value people who think creatively and place a premium on those who demonstrate an innovative spirit.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Alight is focused on rethinking the future of work and life by bringing breakthrough solutions to our clients and their people. That means we need forward-thinking people who are focused on creative problem-solving and developing consumer-centered technology solutions. We want people who look for unique solutions for everyday problems and challenges—whether big or small. In addition, people who embody our core values— people matter, excellence every day, think forward, act now, and be real— will be strong contenders as future Alight colleagues.
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
Most importantly, Alight is looking for prospective colleagues who align with our core values. People who share our focus on putting people first—fellow colleagues, our clients and their people—are critical to our future success. We are also looking for colleagues who have an intellectual curiosity.
We’ve identified seven strategic skill sets that will be instrumental in positioning Alight for success and attracting the right colleagues while simultaneously promoting our unique culture—and we expect our leader to embody these skills. This is instrumental to shaping our culture and central to helping Alight attract the right people.
Alight is continuing to focus on its core business—health, wealth, cloud-based and consumer experience solutions. We are looking for people with health care expertise to help others navigate complex health care challenges. To support our cloud-based HR business, certified Workday and other ERP technical professional will be a hiring priority.
