Increasingly, the soft skills inside your organization are becoming the primary drivers of success. Why is this happening? What are the top soft skills? How do you measure soft skills in candidates? In employees? How do we train and develop those soft skills? How do you know which soft skills your organization needs? These questions are just a few of the many that today’s HR departments are struggling to figure out. In this program, Rusty Lindquist from Bamboo HR and SkillSurvey's Michelle Reed will lead a deep dive into soft skills identification and development. They will answer the 20 most common (and critical) questions about soft skills in the workplace and give you a chance to ask your own.
