Workforce Readiness

Over the past couple of decades, literature surrounding workplace readiness has increasingly focused on the importance of bridging the gap between hard and soft skills. Until recently, the predominant belief was that cognitive abilities mattered most. This is no longer considered to be the case. Further research has gone on to suggest that both skill sets play an important role in determining success and that a combination of cognitive and non-cognitive skills is ultimately what produces the best employees. You always want to be on the look for well-rounded individuals, but the relationship between employer and employee should also be reciprocal.
