Turn Soft Skills into a Competitive Advantage with Write for Business
The Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) identified HR's “hard challenge” with “soft skills”:
“Soft skills—which are needed to effectively communicate, problem-solve, collaborate and organize—are becoming more important for success as the workplace evolves socially and technologically. The rub is that recruiters and employment experts report a ‘soft skills gap,’ especially among young workers more accustomed to texting than talking, that forces organizations to hire many candidates who fall short on interpersonal abilities.”
Write for Business Courses train employees in writing, critical thinking, and problem solving. Combined with weekly eTips and the always-available reference Guide, Write for Business offers unique and lasting value to forward-looking companies and teams.
