Prof Iqbal said that solving a skill gap is like solving a puzzle, not only you have to make the pieces fit, you have to ensure that you have all the necessary pieces from the get-go. “That includes the required skills and competencies for each job role, assessment of what you have versus what you need, identification of best practices, necessary training, and measurement of results,” he said.
He said that In addition to boosting employee engagement, such workshops can enhance workplace competence, camaraderie, and sensitivity. “Employees will learn both the hard skills and soft skills necessary for a smooth-running workplace,” he added.
The workshop was conducted by Prof S J Arif from Department of Electronics AMU. He encouraged all the participants and highlighted the great potential among the technical team of BGSBU.
