How to Build Soft Skills in the Workplace

Soft skills are what set the best-performing employees and organisations apart. In fact, they’re so essential that LinkedIn research found that when new employees don’t last at a company, 89% of the time it’s because they lack soft skills. Similarly, the World Economic Forum’s “Future of Jobs 2020” report found that the No. 1 skill employees will need by 2025 is analytical thinking and innovation.
