Soft skills before hard skills
“Commitment, empathy and the ability to learn a lot in a short time are more important to us than specialist knowledge”, says Christian Greis, founder of Derma2go. After all, know-how can be acquired more quickly than personality traits. Tobias Oetiker of TONI Digital shares this view: “Initiative, teamwork, entrepreneurial spirit, and believing in the idea are the most important criteria for us.” Of course, specialist knowledge in certain areas – in the case of TONI Digital, for example in the field of claims or in IT – is important. Ultimately, however, determination and motivation are more important than any particular specialist knowledge. But how can you make sure that your team is put together in just the right way?
