Decades ago, research conducted by Harvard University, the Carnegie Foundation and Stanford Research Center have all concluded that 85% of job success comes from having well‐developed soft and just 15% are knowledge-based skills. What’s changed, however, is the speed at which those soft skills need to be learned. Their importance in today’s workplace is evident and, with the lubricants industry’s current skill shortage, these types of personal traits are even more sought after.
According to the latest World Economic Forum Future of Jobs report, 97 million new roles are likely to be created by 2025. Displaced workers will need to be reskilled and upskilled to take them on. To plug skills gaps, on average, companies estimate that around 40% of workers will need reskilling of six months or less while 94% of business leaders surveyed said they expect employees to pick up new skills on the job, up from 65% in 2018.
Soft skills have moved away from traditional knowledge and rely on the expression of personal and professional experiences which can bring on new perspectives. They are an essential element of change management. Better communication, better understanding and better diversity can lead to better questions that bring better answers.
