Skill workshop

Patna, Dec. 5: British Lingua held a workshop on soft skills for better job opportunities today at Vidyapati Bhavan.

Speaking on the occasion, British Lingua managing director Birbal Jha enlightened the participants on how to develop soft skills needed for employment in the corporate world.

More than 100 participants, mostly students, attended the workshop. Jha said: “What is needed for employment in the corporate sectors is 20 per cent hard skills and 80 per cent soft skills.”

Developing communication skills, body language, mannerism and working style comes under the purview of soft skills, said Jha.

Application of hard skills or knowledge is soft skills, he added.

“Despite a number of vacancies in various posts in the corporate world, companies are often reluctant to hire persons who do not possess soft skills,” said Jha.

“The growth and development of an organisation often depends on the soft skills of its employees,” he added.

Jha also said: “India is good at imbibing its professionals with hard skills and a strong knowledge base but not with soft skills.”

Soft skills also help a person in his day-to-day encounters, said Jha.
