Communication is the heart of every organization. Time and time again good communication is linked to professional and business success.
Why? Because everything you do in the workplace results from communication. In fact, most people spend 80% of their days communicating, but few if any ever have training in how to speak and communicate effectively.
In a survey conducted by Workforce Solutions Group, it was revealed that more than 60% of employers say that applicants are not demonstrating sufficient communication and interpersonal skills to be considered for jobs. People looking for work and starting jobs are not equipped with the skill they need, despite the fact that every interaction, business or otherwise, depends on a person’s ability to communicate ideas and concepts to another person. How do we get them? Training.
Employers recognize this fact, with 77% of employers saying that soft skills are just as important as hard skills. However, it actually goes even further than that. Interpersonal communication skills aren’t just as important as other skills, they’re actually the most important skill employees can learn. They stand to become even more vital in the years and decades to come.
