With skills needed to succeed changing rapidly, 62 per cent Indian professionals feel daunted by the rapid pace in the requirement of expertise, according to a survey by professional networking platform LinkedIn.

In India, the top three skills that are witnessing a rise are rob%otic process automation, compliance and continuous integration, said the “Future of Skills 2019” report released on Thursday.


Demand for talent with rising skills is three times more than the rest of the talent base, the research showed.

While 82 per cent Indian professionals feel that the skills needed to succeed are changing rapidly, 45 per cent Indian employees left organisations because of lack of learning and development opportunities, the survey found.

“Certain skills are becoming less in-demand as different skills are needed to succeed, therefore upskilling talent is key for organisations to meet their business goals,” said Ruchee Anand, Head of Talent Solutions – India at LinkedIn.

As traditional industries go through digital transformation, tech skills dominate the list of rising skills, but non-tech skills such as social media marketing, compliance, and human-centred design also stand out.

The study is based on survey of over 4,000 employees and 844 learning and development professionals across Australia, India, Japan, and Singapore.

The LinkedIn survey also stated that 61 per cent of Indian professionals believe that soft skills are needed for career progression.

To determine the top rising skills, LinkedIn analysed skills data listed by members on its platform in the last five years and identified those skills that have experienced exponential growth. (IANS)

7th of December 1949, the Armed Force Flag Day

Since the 7th of December 1949, the Armed Forces Flag Day has been observed in India, annually. This one day is dedicated towards collection of funds from the citizens of India for the welfare of the ‘Indian Armed Forces personnel’. It has become a tradition to pay respect to the people who have served in the army, Navy and Airforce, on this day.

“The idea behind observing a Flag Day was to distribute small flags to the general population and in return collect donations.” The color-scheme of the flag is very similar to the ones used by fellow Commonwealth members like Cyprus, Kenya and Nigeria. The Flag Day signifies that it is the responsibility of the citizens of India to take care of the families and dependents of the armed forces personnel who fight for the country.
