About this Topic

SHRM’s research finds that 8 out of 10 HR professionals report that high-demand and soft skills are in short supply. Employers need workers with the hard skills to perform jobs in technology, manufacturing, data analysis and other 21st century careers. And they need workers with the soft skills to communicate well, empathize with co-workers and lead their teams.
