How do we stay relevant and competitive in today's challenging job market? According to LinkedIn there are four trends that are transforming our workplace.

  1. Soft skills

  2. Work flexibility

  3. Anti-harassment

  4. Pay transparency

Soft Skills

Soft skills are not easy to construe, as they depict those human characteristics that are not readily seen. Even during the interview process, recruiters aren't always able to identify if the job seeker possesses the soft skills required for the job. These soft skills incorporate our ability to connect with others properly in a professional setting, such as our emotional intelligence, our ability to demonstrate empathy, how we collaborate with our teammates, or use our creative talents. Soft skills are important in achieving business success, yet organizations claim there is a lack of soft skills in the workplace.
