Business Readiness Certificates

Business leaders, including hiring managers, across several industries report that a “skills gap” exists between the attributes they look for in prospective new hires and staff seeking promotions and the attributes they want to see in these same individuals. The gap isn’t in the technical skills needed. It is in the individual’s interpersonal communication skills, project management skills, ability to work in a team environment, and other “soft skills”. In addition, they report that the individual really set up for success is the person with business acumen.
