Soft skills constitute an immutable need to every company’s operations. There are certain soft skills all employees of a company are expected to have regardless of level or position, in order for the company to prosper. Our Department of Academy for Professional Development is a training department to develop the soft skills .Unlike hard skills, which can be proven and measured, soft skills are intangible and difficult to quantify. Some examples of soft skills include analytical thinking, verbal and written communication, and leadership.

Research from the Society for Human Resource Management found that employers actually care more about soft skills than they do technical abilities like reading comprehension and mathematics. One reason soft skills are so revered is that they help facilitate human connections. Basically, you can be the best at what you do, but if your soft skills aren’t cutting it, you’re limiting your chances of career success.
