Only 1 in 10 candidates with a matching CV also has a fitting soft skills profile. 9 in 10 employees leaving their company, leave because of soft skills mismatch. Still most companies do not screen for soft skills prior to the interview. Reduce your bad hires by implementing soft skills screening early in your recruitment process.
Research shows that 92% leave their jobs due to soft skills issues – not fitting their new role, organization, team or manager. Still, today’s focus in the recruitment process is on the CV requirements. This despite the widespread “optimization” services being offered. Candidates can utilize CV templates, CV writing services, CV formatting services for a very low fee, delivering shiny CVs optimized for the job and the parsing algorithms. This is rapidly changing – the recruitment process is transforming towards a holistic approach, including soft skills screening and assessing. This transformation is posing new challenges for the recruiting function, assessing soft skills is generally a demanding and time-consuming task and is one of the major obstacles in the future of work for human resource departments.
