About Conover Company, A Division of Oakwood Solutions

For over 100 years research has shown that only 15% of worker success is determined by what they know (hard skills) while 85% of success is determined by how effectively they deal with others (soft skills). Our workplace readiness and emotional intelligence soft skills programs have addressed this critical skill gap for over almost four decades.

Most organizations are frustrated that they even need to deal with the soft skills gap at all. To ease your pain, our cost-effective, cloud-based, anytime/anywhere/any device system makes it easy for anyone to be assessed, trained and credentialed in these mission-critical skills.

CONOVER IS SOFT SKILLS. For over 40 years we have been developing evidence-based assessment and skill intervention systems for soft skills and emotional intelligence, including:
