Valerie’s presentation, Weaving Soft Skills Development into Everyday Employment Services, will show that soft skills are a key gap in the employment readiness of many clients − a limitation that is often invisible to clients and staff. Using independent research, as well as data from 12 years of implementing the Employment Readiness Scale™, this interactive session will explore ways of achieving efficiencies in service provision by giving clients both what they’re looking for and what they need for work life success by incorporating the strengthening of soft skills into career exploration, skills training and/or job search interventions.
