92% of HR professionals believe soft skills are a critical necessity.
It’s no longer up for debate: soft skills are an essential element to take into account in any HR and recruitment strategy. Moreover, in 9 out of 10 cases, recruitment failures are linked to a poor match between the employee's soft skills and the job.
An employee who disagrees with your corporate culture, who does not fit in with the teams, who is not in tune with your values, etc. These are all elements that reflect a gap between your expectations and the soft skills of the person, who will not be able to perform to their full capacity.
You lose time, money and the opportunity to meet the right candidate for the job.
While hard skills are easy to assess, soft skills are difficult to define. 62% of HR think that the way in which they assess soft skills can be improved, due to the methods used including interviews or role playing, which are very subjective.
