Hays launches free online training to help businesses in Hong Kong SAR thrive from home

Hays, the leading recruiting expert, has launched a free online training portal designed to help employers and teams in Hong Kong SAR grow the skills they need to function effectively and thrive in the face of the current working environment.

Available to businesses of all sizes, Hays Thrive offers three course areas covering remote working, wellbeing and health and safety. The remote working courses are designed to help improve worker efficiency, assist with planning their working days and help them excel when working with a remote team.  

The courses are designed to be completed as part of a busy schedule, with an in-built learning management system that can help employers assign training, track team completions and create personalised training programmes.

Jack Leung, Regional Director of Hays Hong Kong SAR, commented: “As Hong Kong takes cautious steps to get back to work, social distancing is becoming a new reality that will impact the world of work for the foreseeable future. As businesses continue adapting to unprecedented change, including working remotely and managing remote teams, ensuring employees are supported with skills and training to navigate these changes is crucial to how quickly normal operations can resume. By offering online training courses for free, we hope to help businesses empower their workers with the knowledge and skills needed to master these new ways of working.”
