Move the Needle

Our soft skills programs help HBCUs make a positive impact in the following areas:


More parents and students are seeking institutions that offer stackable credentials such as soft skills certifications. The addition of a branded, online soft skills platform will aid in boosting student recruitment.


Soft skills training is essential to retaining employees. For some employees, professional development is more valuable than a raise in pay. The more your team learns, the more effective they become. This increases employee loyalty, morale and productivity.


Each time your students, faculty and or staff members earn their first soft skills certification, Simply Success donates access to its soft skills training programs to someone less fortunate. Single mothers, at risk teens, disabled veterans and others can have your HBCU to thank for their empowerment and professional development. Simply Success is the only company that offers a one to one match with soft skills training.


By keeping employees longer, making them more effective and by leveraging the Simply Success platform as a recruiting tool, your HBCU can achieve more revenues. The soft skills message also resonates with donors as they can all agree with its benefits.
