A 2017 report by Deloitte suggested that 63% of all jobs would be soft-skills intensive. While there is a rise in the use of automation and technology in the workplace, there will always be room for ‘human' (soft) skills. As roles and business requirements change, how equipped are we to recruit for soft-skills? And which skills really matter?
