Here's How To Fix It
Recruiters acknowledge that it is the employee’s Soft Skills which determine their success in the role.
Yet HR Tech is focused on identifying Hard Skills.
How Did It Get Broken
Too much HR Tech is focused on identifying skills and experience, recruiters look for people who have done the job before, sometimes this works, but more often it does not. Why? Because previous success is influenced by their previous team members, and their working environment, and what may have worked in the past, may not be easily transferable.
HR Tech tools are focused on data management and data analysis with a bias towards Big Data and the discovery of previously unseen trends. This is shutting the stable door after the horse has bolted. After all which is the smarter approach either: (a) analysing your Diversity and Inclusion Statistics, or (b) eradicating Unconscious Bias at recruitment. (Hint – if you selected (a) don’t read any further!)

HR Tech which assesses Soft Skills at the point of Application, and that could rank all applicants in terms of their best soft skill fit for the role, and in a friction free environment, fixes this broken recruitment process, but only for companies that use it.
