(Madrid, December 18, 2023.-) The labor market of this second decade of the 21st century is characterized by being increasingly dynamic and competitive. An environment in which, as recruitment strategies, soft skills are emerging as the key factor to achieve professional success and excellence in the work environment.

This is where Hirint makes the difference, with a tool capable of evaluating soft skills in a completely objective way and thus helping companies to build workforces in which diversity becomes a strong point. An element that helps make a difference and achieve competitive advantage in the market.

The technical qualifications of those seeking employment are usually quite high. Training and experience make job seekers highly qualified from a technical point of view, but companies are looking for something more.

In the current employment landscape, soft skills have increasingly more weight in the hiring decision because they are essential when it comes to successfully addressing the tasks of a position.

Evaluating soft skills has become essential within the personnel selection process, because they have a direct impact on productivity, talent retention and work productivity.

Attributes such as the adaptability and empathy of its members can make a difference when it comes to ensuring that a work team accomplishes its tasks effectively and with maximum efficiency.

While hard or technical skills can be learned in a more or less limited period of time, soft skills are the fruit of a set of personal experiences and experiences. Therefore, its acquisition is much more complex and slow. Hence, companies are interested in people who already have these skills developed.

When recruiting for a company, recruiters’ cognitive biases can be an obstacle. It is that set of limiting beliefs that lead to overvaluing or undervaluing a person due to certain personal or social conditions: their age, their gender, their origin, their race, their educational level, the place where they have studied, etc

If putting aside prejudices is complicated in a selection based on technical skills, it is even more so when it is oriented towards the search for specific soft skills.

For recruiters, it is very difficult to evaluate issues such as a person’s ability to work as a team or their level of empathy. Consequently, they may unconsciously resort to their biases to choose between one candidate or another. Phenomenon that results, in most cases, in the choice not being the most appropriate, because it was not based on objective factors.

Faced with this problem, the Hirint platform is emerging as a very useful solution. Through it, companies can carry out psychometric tests on their candidates. This allows them to better understand your professional and personal profile and, especially, your soft skills. And do it, furthermore, in a totally objective way.

A five-step system in which companies are the protagonists. They decide which soft skills they will evaluate and, ultimately, they will be the ones to make the hiring decision.

With Hirint, creating highly efficient, diverse work teams with the most talented personnel is much easier.
