Soft skills

LinkedIn also ranked “soft” skills – the interpersonal qualities employers want most in their staff. The list looked very similar to the 2019 rankings, with creativity holding onto the top spot.

LinkedIn said this emphasized the “importance of how we respond to and interact with colleagues.”
