Business Glossary provided by
Hard skills refer to measurable and teachable abilities specific to certain jobs or tasks, acquired through formal education, training, or certification. They can be objectively tested and assessed, such as computer literacy, foreign language proficiency, or operation of specific machinery. These skills are crucial for job performance and are often the basis for hiring decisions. Employers value them because they are related to specific job functions and are relatively easy to quantify.
