Why Hays Learning? Skills development is essential for career success 

Hays Learning offers free online courses that focus on critical skills development areas including soft skills, technical skills, and digital skills.  
Soft skills are made up of personal attributes, behaviours and traits that are paramount to getting along and working successfully with others. They are universally required for every job in every industry and include skills relating to communication, teamwork, problem solving, adaptability, critical thinking and time management, among others. With our free online training, you can develop your soft skills then apply them effectively in any workplace environment.  

With your soft skills foundation in place, it’s now time to enhance your hard or technical skills. Technical skills are abilities needed to perform job-specific tasks and will vary depending on your industry and role. Technical skills include specific capabilities and knowledge of concepts and processes required to complete your job responsibilities. Like soft skills, hard skills development can be achieved through learning and improved through practice.  

The tectonic shift in the workplace caused by continuous and rapid technological change has seen employers place a greater emphasis on digital skills. Constant upskilling is required to ensure the competent use of digital devices, platforms, and applications relevant to your job and industry. 

To equip yourself for long-term career success, you need to focus your learning and development on all three of these skills areas. Our free online classes will allow you to acquire and improve all these skills so that you always enjoy a competitive advantage.
