Currently in the age of information it is harder than ever to engage employees into leveling up their skills. HR departments are forced to look for new and innovative ways to produce the results expected by the stakeholders.
There is no doubt that so called soft skills including wide array of social interactions, customer service, negotiating, sales pitching and business networking are essential for the effective functioning of businesses and are what managers are looking for from prospective employees.
Teaching soft skills is hard because people react and behave differently in similar situations, so traditional teaching methods, which typically follow a one size fits all approach, are not very effective. They are also expensive and usually requires travel to the training center. With a global workforce, standards of training can vary widely.
