At Equifax you’ll be given opportunities to learn, develop, and grow your career in a number of ways.

Learning at Equifax

Like in most organisations, much of what helps us develop our skills, capabilities and behaviours, is learnt ‘on the job’. This approach to development is commonly known as the 70/20/10 principle. In real terms, this means you gain 70 percent of your learning and knowledge from job-related experiences, 20 percent from interactions with others, and 10 percent from formal learning events. 
  • Exposure to projects, new types of work or clients, collaborating, problem solving, self-directed learning or even on projects, can all provide valuable opportunities to learn, stretch and challenge yourself. This contributes to the 70%. 
  • Learning from colleagues, managers, role models, mentors or coaches makes up the 20%. 
  • The last 10% is acquired through the traditional and formal structured learning that you may find in workshops, virtual sessions or formal coaching and mentoring programs. 

Once you’ve completed your induction, you will have access to a range of learning opportunities including our learning portal which contains videos, courses and reading for you to undertake as and when you need, as well as formal workshops and virtual sessions scheduled throughout the year.

Your Induction Learning

As part of your onboarding with Equifax you will be asked to complete several mandatory learning modules. These modules are important to your role as an employee at Equifax. It’s really important that you complete all this learning as soon as possible after joining us. This helps us to stay compliant and ensures our customers get the very best from us and that we do the right thing.

The first set of mandatory learnings comes from our Workday system and you will receive emails with links to complete these 5 courses that cover a range of compliance and regulatory topics such as security awareness, and privacy and insider trading. Please note that these modules must be completed within your first 14 days.


If you are a line manager you will also receive links to some additional learning so that you understand your responsibilities as a manager in our business with regards to health and safety, discrimination and harassment and bullying. 

We understand that there is a lot to learn in your weeks in any new role or business, and it would be very helpful for us if you completed this learning as soon as you possibly can. That way you make space to start your role in a meaningful way and contribute in a way which adds value for your team and for Equifax.
