Saving time and costs

Creating the list of hard skills - qualifications, expertise and experience - needed in a new employee and comparing these with the applications and CVs you receive can be a daunting enough task.

Add to this the time and expense of advertising, shortlisting, interviewing, inducting, equipping and training new people - and you are looking at a significant costs to your business for even one new appointment.

So what cost to your profitability if it doesn't work out? When your new recruit's soft skills - behaviour, approach or personal attributes - are at odds with the demands of the role or culture of either team or organisation? Knowledge and expertise can be taught and developed; but what of inherent soft skills?

What if you could easily determine and express the soft skills that would make the best appointment and prove most productive for both your business and new recruit?

Determining the qualities needed for your vacancies

By responding to a few simple choices in the Self Awareness online Job Role diagnostic, employers are able to quickly and easily generate a Soft Skills Summary for any vacancy.
