"Improving Productivity Through Innovation"

Essential Skills

At OptiHR we donʼt believe in a “one size fits all” approach. Our training programs and workshops are fully customised to meet the needs of our clients. Your businessʼ vision, mission, values and culture are all written into the programs and workshops to ensure that you reap maximum benefit.
 
We all know that classroom training can be boring and ineffective. Thatʼs why we have developed a practical hands-on approach, ensuring that new knowledge and skills are transferred and applied in the workplace. As part of our training, each delegate will identify a process or action for improvement, a method of measurement and a action plan for implementation. This approach ensures immediate results for you as a business. All improvements are quantified and measured in a monetary value, encouraging a process of continuous improvement with a core focus on bottom line financial results. 


With OptiHR's essential skills you can excel as a leader. Public speaking, delegating, motivating, and team building are all much easier if you have good essential skills. Knowing how to get along with people and displaying a positive attitude are crucial for success. The problem is, the importance of these essential skills is often undervalued, and there is far less training provided for them than hard skills. For some reason, organisations seem to expect people know how to behave on the job. They tend to assume that everyone knows and understands the importance of being on time, taking initiative, and producing high quality work. Assuming that such skills are universal leads to much frustration. That's why it's so important to focus as much on essential skills training and development as you do on traditional hard skills.
