    Thinking Soft Skills for Workforce. Think Critical Core Skills.

    By Corrine Peng and Hannah Lennon
    Recorded on September 24, 2020

    The adoption of technology, automation and digitalization over the years have led to the transformation at work and in living. The current COVID-19 crisis has accelerated these changes, impacting the lives of billions around the world. In the past, individuals and employers have assigned lower priority to soft skills while emphasizing technical skills acquisition for employment and careers. The crisis provides a timely reminder on the importance of building soft skills that would allow individuals to stay resilient, agile and connected in the increasingly digitalized world.  What can our career practitioners do to change the mindset of individuals related to soft skills, to encourage them to develop these skills and apply them to serve their lifelong career-learning development? A set of 16 Critical Core Skills for the Singapore workforce identified in consultation with industries will be introduced.

    Corrine Peng, a Jobs-Skills Analyst at SkillsFuture Singapore, collaborates with internal and external stakeholders to develop and derive jobs-skills insights and skills trends relating to evolving sector landscape and end users’ needs.
