Why are soft skills so important?

According to a recent article in The Economic Times, out of three lakh MBA graduates every year, only 10 percent are employable.

A recent report by Business World estimates the number of students graduating each year to be around 50 lakh of which only 25 percent of which are deemed to be employable.

This means that despite having job opportunities, there are several graduates who aren't fit to be hired in the companies.

An obvious question here is -- Why aren't these graduates employable?

  • Do they not have the required technical or domain knowledge?
  • In fact, in a survey conducted by Global Management Consultancy, Hay Group, in India, 74 percent (of the surveyed group of business leaders and HR professionals) said that they have hired graduates who lack the necessary people skills due to a lack of choice.

Which brings us to the crux of the matter -- What are soft skills?

  • Soft skills refer to the cluster of personal traits or qualities such as communication, personal habits, empathy, and presentation skills etc., which define how we interact with others.
  • Often, these qualities are intangible and are acquired through years of concentrated effort.
  • In a typical corporate example, while technical skills are required to receive an interview call, soft skills help convert the call into a job offer and also for further career growth.
  • Technical skills are job specific where as soft skills are applicable across roles, domains and careers.
  • To be precise, soft skills can also be called 'people skills' -- the personal attributes that enhance an individual's interaction, job performance and career prospects.

 

Some examples for the same could be:

  • Communication skills
    • Anger management
    • Team skills
    • E-mail etiquette
    • Negotiation skills
    • Behavioral traits such as time management, stress management etc.

Why exactly are these skills required?

  • In the Knowledge Economy of today, most of the people have almost the same knowledge base.
  • What differentiates one person from another is how well they can effectively utilize their skill and knowledge.
  • These skills improve interaction with bosses, colleagues and clients and influence how others perceive us.
  • In social networking, the oriented world of today, it is important that one is amenable to others; else, people tend to avoid you.
  • The success depends on the efforts you put in the practice, how often you practice them, and how you incorporate the feedback on your skills.
