Life – Skills
Acquiring ‘Hard-skills’ for securing employment has been the operative paradigm thus far. The entire eco – system comprising students, parents, schools, educational institutions, employers and Government agencies has been finely honed toward the acquisition of ‘Hard – skills’ with the underlying assumption that this automatically guarantees Employment.
‘Soft-skills’ that we prefer to term ‘Life-skills’, were termed ‘desirable’ and certainly not ‘essential’ for servicing the work-force. Consequently, ‘Hard-skills’ have been the main-stay of recruitment, retention and engagement processes of employers.
This paradigm is set to be flipped on its head with the gradual creep of Artificial Intelligence and robotics powered automation that is estimated to render about 20% of the work-force redundant by 2030. As a consequence, ‘Soft-skills’ will be an essential requirement for 63% of jobs by 2030 as traditional ‘Hard-skill’ anchored jobs will either vanish or morph into variants powered by ‘Soft-skills’ that digital technologies cannot yet fathom. ‘Soft-skills’, that should now be termed ‘Life-skills’, given their centrality in the personal & professional life of the future work-force are taking centre-stage.
