TRUST THE NUMBERS
More than a century ago, in a study made by Harvard, Stanford & Carnegie Foundation, 94,5% of the 7000 surveyed engineers valued soft skills over technical skills.*
In today’s world, your ability to learn, unlearn, relearn, adapt and grow is not only valued but quintessential for your professional survival…
In 2013, Project Oxygen, Google’s analysis of its internal management uncovered that soft skills, not STEM skills, stood behind success. And the Aristotle Project, showed that the most successful, innovative and productive teams featured social values, not just hard skills.**
In a 2017 survey by IET UK, 71% of surveyed employers reported issues with candidates having academic knowledge but lacking workplace skills.***
In India, 65% of mid-size companies privilege a soft-skill training over a technical training for their new employees.****
Both the academic and the professional worlds are stressing on the importance of nurturing skills beyond knowledge.
Isn’t time we revisited our educational journey to develop those much needed aptitudes to remain relevant in a world that is constantly changing?
WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
Life and career skills are at least as important as hard skills.
That’s why PERSED invests in the skills that remain untaught and that can boost personal, academic and professional growth.
This includes but is not limited to: self-knowledge, goal setting, productivity, communication & public speaking, time management, decision making, etc.
