November 12, 2020 – Hicham El Amrani, a jet-setting global management trainer and coach, announced today the launch of the world’s first online course platform dedicated to soft skills training – 21stcenturyjobskills.com. The platform’s primary mission is to help busy professionals and those entering the job market survive and thrive in the rapidly transforming 21st century workplace by learning critical soft skills. Each course is designed to be completed in less than 90 minutes.
Over the last few years, businesses, educational establishments, and global organizations have been increasingly highlighting the soft skills gap in the current job market. Likewise, the World Economic Forum launched its Global Talent Trends Report earlier this year, which showed that HR professionals have identified the demand for soft skills as the most important trend globally.
Skills such as creativity, emotional intelligence, and collaboration are all fundamentally impossible to automate, which means developing these skills will set you apart and make you more valuable to organizations, now and in the future. “This is important to keep top of mind for anyone seeking new job opportunities, or working towards climbing higher up in the ranks of their existing employment,” commented Hicham El Amrani.
Furthermore, the 21stcenturyjobskills.com platform offers a solution to modern business needs by providing easily accessible online courses on emotional intelligence, communication, leadership, problem-solving and agile thinking, decision-making, and creativity, amongst others.
Hicham El Amrani commented, “The COVID 19 pandemic amplified the importance of soft skills such as resilience and grit, collaboration, communication, and emotional intelligence. People need these skills to competently adapt to a changing world that is dominated by a virtual workplace. To that end, many businesses are now incorporating soft skills assessments into their hiring process, and selecting personnel based on the strength of their soft skills rather than being exclusively focused on technical skills,” he added.
The platform is designed for busy professionals, and businesses that would like to invest in onsite training courses to enhance their employee’s soft skills. Under a licensing agreement, some companies are already offering 21St Century Job Skills courses to their employees, while others are re-branding the courses to use them as an extension to their existing training.
“I am so thrilled to see that more people are recognizing the significance of soft skills and are now investing time and money to develop them. In my own career, I have worked closely with many brilliant and successful people. One of the secrets they shared with me about their success is the continuous development of their soft skills,” concluded Hicham El Amrani.
