HCL offers soft skills training programme
HCL Technologies has initiated a programme called GoPRO, meaning go professional, to train students and working professionals in non-technical and soft skills. Ravi Shankar, Global Head, Talent Management Group, HCL, feels that the Indian education system is still in the manufacturing era which is far behind the service era and senses a need for upgradation. This training programme concentrates mainly on engineering colleges, for they are lacking the required aspects. The programme’s second level of interest is in women’s colleges.
