This paper introduces the research team and its research results on soft skills. By making a clarification on the scope of soft skills and the literature approaches, our research focus falls on detecting how employees, mainly students of the future labour market, and employing companies, mainly those who sharply face the changing world, rank and evaluate soft skills, as well as how these can be harmonised and developed. The data collection is based on surveys, and the analysis uses statistical methods. The results express that there are frictions in the demand and supply side of the labour market in terms of soft skills, but agents see paths and methods to improve them and to match to the changing world.
