Succeeding in today’s increasingly competitive global landscape calls for our organizations to leverage everything they can, and increasingly, that leverage is coming down to your employees' soft skills. But while it’s easy (well, less hard) to measure and hire for hard-skills competency, it’s very difficult to recognize and hire for soft skills. And once hired, it becomes even more of a task to build those soft skills in your employees.
In this program, Rusty Lindquist of BambooHR and Michelle Reed of SkillSurvey offer a deep look at the soft skills that really enable organizations to succeed. From recruiting to learning and development and performance management to the exit interview, you'll learn how a soft-skills focus can dramatically impact your company’s bottom line.
