A FIERCE-SPONSORED RESEARCH REPORT
WHY ORGANIZATIONS SHOULD INVEST MORE IN SOFT SKILLS DEVELOPMENT: RESEARCH REPORT
Employee development can be grouped into two broad categories:
hard skills and soft skills. Hard skills are tangible and relatively easy
to assess, including competencies such as the ability to use a piece of equipment or perform a procedure. Soft skills are less easily defined and include things such as communication skills, teamwork and adaptability.
In this study, we partnered with HR Research Institute to investigate how human resources (HR) professionals and organizations think about soft and hard skills. Which are more important? Which are harder to develop? Which should you invest in? We then take a deep dive into one of the most important soft skills: communication.
This study is intended to provide HR professionals with the latest information on hard-and-soft skill trends, insights, tactics, strategies and benchmarks.
