Importance of Communication Skills in Todays World !
We are living in the globalised economy and are an interdependent society. In this scenario, interpersonal and communication skills are no more option but MANDATORY. This is global phenomenon. The overhelming majority gave a weightage to 80 : 20 in favor of Soft skills over Hard skills. One more reason why this is happening in india is technical excellance is no more a GLORY. We have 30 lakhs of graduates coming out every year and out of that around 6 lakhs are engineers or technical persons. Expecting the other 50% as Graduates tthere is no dearth for technical talent. One more factor is that education system is not current with the industry practice and anyway the organisation has to train fresh graduates in organisation specific technical skills.So the new mantra made HR professionals is ' Hire for ATTITUDE, Train for knowledge and SKILLS' . So the hbehavior skills or attitude are the yardstick for selection after ensuring the fact that basic technical skills are in place.
