How Bryq assesses Communication in candidates
Communication is considered one of the most required skills in the modern labor market, in particular, it is among the top three most in-demand skills across all occupational categories. Enhancing communication skills is crucial for workplace success as it empowers individuals to effectively engage, exchange information, and offer valuable input to diverse stakeholders through both verbal and nonverbal means. Moreover, employees must possess the ability to foster productive interactions with clients and colleagues, facilitating collaborative efforts, addressing client requirements, and adapting to evolving demands and priorities, irrespective of their work location, be it remote or on-site.
According to a recent study, it was found that communication is the most vital skill emphasized by industries. In fact, a recent survey discovered that 90% of workers are employed in roles where strong communication skills are highly valued.
Considering how dominant communication is in today’s workplaces, Bryq assessment can provide an objective way to measure Communication abilities. Candidates who score highly in this area would match well with a Communications role.
