Why are Soft Skills important?
Soft skills help workers to be adaptable and motivated throughout their whole employment and as they move into new roles or careers. In other words, they lay the foundation for a strong and flexible workforce and for happy, fulfilled workers.
UP Skills for Work focuses on 9 key employability skills that hiring managers look for. These skills were identified by Futureworx, a Canadian non-profit at the forefront in developing soft skills programming.
