Navigating change: Innovations in staffing services for unpredictable times
In today's fast-paced business landscape, staffing services play a pivotal role in helping organisations adapt to unexpected changes.
Although often overlooked on a CV, hiring for soft skills is critical to a business’s success. According to a recent LinkedIn Global Talent Trends survey 89% of respondents stated that bad hires “typically have poor soft skills”. By not focusing on those all-important soft skills, you could potentially end up hiring people who look great on paper but may struggle within the office environment.
What are some of the most important soft skills to keep an eye out for?
Without a candidate having a well-rounded mix of both soft and hard skills they may not excel within the business. If a candidate has the exact qualification or experience that you are looking for but doesn’t have the ability to communicate efficiently and work within a team, then their hard skills (I.e. their knowledge/experience) may not be demonstrated to their full ability as they could be less likely to join in large team discussions and share knowledge with other employees- see the benefit of soft skills?
