A year of Soft Skills Training with iHASCO

A year of Soft Skills Training with iHASCO

iHASCO has come a long way since 2008, when we offered just five Health & Safety Training courses. Since then, our library has grown so much... We now offer over 150 video-based eLearning courses! 

One of the ways we have been able to grow our course library has been through branching out into Soft Skills Training, which started just over a year ago. We have released a number of highly-popular courses, including:

Overall, we have delivered roughly a quarter of a million sessions from our Soft Skill Training courses alone!

What are soft skills and why is it important we develop them?

Soft skills can be defined as the skills we use to communicate, build relationships, approach work, manage time, and so much more. These skills play a crucial part in an employer's decision to keep, hire or promote an employee. They also make it easier for people to build relationships and trust and lead teams. They are essential for workplace growth and success.

Ultimately, the benefits of training and developing employees’ soft skills depend on what skill you are training them in. But generally speaking, developing these skills can help you build and enhance your career path, win business, and build long-lasting relationships.

How can you develop an employees’ soft skills?

Every employee will possess certain soft skills, whether they realise it or not. But it is important to understand that soft skills can be developed.

It can also be useful for employees to recognise their soft skill strengths and weaknesses to give them a better understanding of what areas need the most practice. One effective way of helping staff to identify areas for improvement is by asking your employees to carry out a review of their soft skills.

With that said, we've put together a free-to-download checklist to help individuals assess whether they are strong in a specific soft skill or would like to develop it further. The checklist comes as part of our Soft Skills White Paper and can be downloaded for free here.

Once you have identified the weaker areas that need the most improvement, you need to find the right training…

Here at iHASCO, we offer over 20 Soft Skill Training courses, covering some of the most desirable skills in the modern workplace.

Each course can be completed in roughly 30 minutes, and users are able to come back to their training to revisit information that will help them continually improve their soft skills.
