Soft skills are extremely important and will become increasingly relevant as more and more tasks become automated. When will being creative or a team player ever go out of style? HR professionals agree: Ninety-two percent of talent professionals consider soft skills to be equally or more important than hard skills when hiring. Although there is a consensus that soft skills are important, 70% of talent professionals read body language as a way to assess soft skills and 57% admit they do not know how to accurately assess them.
Even though you can gather a lot from a person within the first seconds of meeting them, it is difficult to assess whether that person will likely succeed in a specific company or role.
This is where AI soft skills assessments can greatly assist you.
