Let’s face it: hiring is hard. We don’t need to remind small- and medium-sized business (SMB) owners how important it is (nor how difficult it can be) to find the perfect fit for an open position. Especially now, during what statistics show is one of the busiest hiring months of the year.
When filling an open position, it’s important to evaluate potential hires based on more than the experience listed on their respective resumes. Identifying an ideal employee also requires careful evaluation of each candidate’s ‘soft skills’—unique attributes, such as problem-solving and communication skills, which aren’t specific to a particular job or industry, and can be vital to one’s success in the workplace.
Recently, LinkedIn conducted a survey of over 1,200 hiring managers, who identified the most important soft skills that they look for when interviewing job candidates. Several of the experts’ highlighted skills, listed below, that align with Samsung multifunction printers’ (MFPs) powerful solutions—further underlining the versatility and efficiency that makes the printers, like well-rounded employees, excellent additions to any workplace.
Soft Skill #1: Adaptability
Sixty-nine percent of the hiring managers in LinkedIn’s study ranked adaptability as the most important soft skill that they look for potential employees, and it’s easy to see why. Any new addition to an office—be it printers or personnel—needs to be versatile enough to adapt to the business’s evolving needs.
Samsung’s Smart UX Center was designed to offer businesses the level of adaptability they need to stay productive and competitive.
Smart UX Center-equipped MFPs like the MultiXpress X7600LX allow you to print, scan and fax productively via an intuitive, Android-powered touchscreen. The interface can be customized with apps and widgets that cater to your business. As your business’s needs become more and more diverse, so too will your printer’s selection of work-streamlining apps.
Soft Skill #2: Collaboration
It goes without saying that a new hire’s ability to work well with others is essential to fostering productivity, which is why the ability to collaborate effectively was one of the hiring managers’ top-rated soft skills.
Because collaboration is key to success, Samsung MFPs feature a number of convenient apps and solutions that allow workforces to collaborate on documents more effectively.
For example, Cloud Connector Core, part of the Business Core 2.5 solutions suite, makes it possible for team members collaborating on a project to seamlessly share documents they’re working on by scanning them to the cloud and printing the cloud-saved files directly from the printer.
Soft Skill #3: Growth Potential
You invest a lot in your office’s technology as well, which is why it’s also important to equip your business with devices that have been built with the future in mind. The Smart UX Center offers a wide variety of future-proof printing solutions that can help your business evolve and grow amid an ever-changing business landscape.
Soft Skill #4: Prioritization
The ability to manage multiple projects and ensure that each gets done on time is vital in the business world, which makes prioritization invaluable as a soft skill. In order to help your business succeed, any new addition to your company needs to be capable of prioritizing which jobs can wait, and which need to be tackled immediately.
Samsung printers offer fast print and scan speeds that can help users prioritize jobs more effectively by freeing up more time for them to manage urgent tasks. The MultiXpress X7600LX prints at speeds of up to 60 pages per minute, and also features a Dual-Scan Document Feeder that delivers ultra-fast scan speeds of up to 240 images per minute. Together, these and other innovations ensure that users won’t have to wait long to manage whatever printing task they’re working on.
When considering a new addition to your office, whether it be an employee or a printer, opt for the option that offers the skills your business needs to thrive.
