Apparently, a greater emphasis on soft skills correlates with most companies continuing to operate in a remote work environment.
Soft skills are broadly classified as a combination of personality traits, behaviors, and social attitudes that allow people to communicate effectively, collaborate, and successfully manage conflict.
Unlike “hard” skills, which often describe a candidate’s technical abilities, soft skills include any skills developed beyond your technical competencies and intellectual knowledge.
While there are an abundance of soft skills worth noting, a top soft skill that hiring managers are looking for in 2021 is time management. Many employers were forced to take a leap of faith with their employees moving to a partial or fully remote work environment in 2020.
Study after study has shown that employees with soft skill talent help an organization move happily forward. But like management approaches in general, soft skills have also evolved. The soft skills that an organization emphasizes today may be different from just a few years ago, which is why continual education in soft skills training is a good idea for individuals and progressive organizations.
Communication and time management soft skills are still top of the list characteristics that organizations want from their management teams.
The ability to communicate with clients and team members is essential, and it’s not just when you are trying to get the point across, either. Now that most communication is done through emails, chats, video or phone conference calls, strong communication skills are more critical than ever.
Many experts in this field believe that taking courses like those offered by Tonex in communication soft skills is well worth the investment. It’s one of the most crucial soft skills in any job, in any industry.
