In a Wall Street Journal survey of 900 executives, 92% of them reported that soft skills, including communication, curiosity, and critical thinking are as important as technical skills. Surprisingly, 89% of those same executives reported that they have a difficult time finding hires with soft skills.
At the root of this problem lies the fact that communication, curiosity, and critical thinking are harder to measure than technical skills.
However, the reliving solution to the whole issue is that all these skills can be developed by providing training and taking follow-ups.
