2021 Extra Soft Skills Needed In The Event Industry: The Consequences Of The Pandemic

The pandemic caused by Covid-19 profoundly transformed the event industry. Meeting planners and event professionals are called to face this change with new professional skills, and even with their soft skills.

Next to new job roles that complete the consistent digital transformation in event planning for the next coming years, event staff’s skills will indeed make a difference for organisers in need of controlling a new kind of scenery.

 


Rox Event Staff is the only event staffing agency in the UK that helps you take the headache out of staffing and event marketing in one place.

 All our Event Staff took the mass gathering course by WHO, which is now mandatory for them to work with us.

The strategic development of expertise

The development of new careers and knowledge concerns all the world of work. Based on Cegos Observatory Barometer 2020, 90% of HR and 80% of employees believe that new competence is becoming even more strategic to face the digital transformation.

Besides, 43% of HR believes that developing soft skills, following changes imposed by Covid-19 in the employment world, is now urgent to strengthen, against 34% of other European countries.

Amongst the main consequences of the pandemic and its digital transformation, there are three changes more evident than others that may last up to 5 years:

1) New professions (54%)

2) Creation of new employment (43%)

3) Followed by scaling (28%)

 

Future proficiency

Let’s keep looking at Cegos data. Human resources point soft skills as the most critical area (43%) based on the research. The essential knowledge to train from now on is:

1) Ability to adapt (52%)

2) Digital communication (46%)

3) and Remote Management (45%)

Based on another research, made for Almed by 2B research & Analysis on Generation Z and the world of work, there are competence and attention to the human aspect among most wanted managers’ skills, even before lockdown.

Post-pandemic Event Staff’s soft skills

If the pandemic changed both our present professional and personal life and influences the future, we can affirm that everything we learned in the past won’t go to waste.

And this seems even more real for event professionals’ needed soft skills. Side skills like team-working, flexibility and problem solving, to mention a few, will keep being necessary skills to work in the event industry.

And there is more. Those who work in events post-pandemic will surely need to demonstrate a high level of:

  1. Adaptability
  2. Stress management
  3. Problem-solving
  4. Empathy
  5. Creativity
  6. Communication

Positive Resilience

During a pandemic you may lose some battles, however, the objective is to win the war. Your mission should always be to go through challenges adapting and assisting your clients with ad hoc prices and promotions. Another important virtue is courage: creating new ideas during uncertain times to change the way things have always been. Communicate, listen, plan, adapt, work on your strengths. Now more than ever we need to look beyond.
