Soft skills assessment software objectively evaluates candidates to help companies and HR departments make informed hiring decisions. Organizations use soft skills assessments to determine employment suitability based on company-candidate fit. This pre-employment testing solution typically screens candidates for aptitude, personality, and essential work skills. It also provides insight into emotional intelligence, leadership and communication skills, and behavior.
Soft skills assessments might include features that test candidates for adaptability, assertiveness, optimism, responsiveness, sociability, problem solving, spatial visualization, and vocabulary, to name a few. Some soft skills assessments cater to specific industries or provide general solutions that businesses can adapt based on their industry, position, and company culture.

These pre-employment testing solutions either come as part of an applicant tracking solution (ATS) software or provide integrations with ATS solutions.
