BigLeap as an organisation that loves and cares for the young people of this country feels it is part of our probity rather than mere responsibility to nurture them in the areas where they stumble on their way to building a career and thereby making this great nation more and more productive in the coming years.
BigLeap, since its very inception in 2000 has been driving out one single notion; addressing just one yet highly significant issue that our country has been facing and continues to face – apathetic employability index! The number of engineers emerging each year and the number that ends up as engineers are alarmingly disproportionate. Statistics say that India churns out almost about 6 lakhs engineers every year. But the number that goes on to become a part of any engineering workforce anywhere across this nation is perniciously low. So what is this problem all about? Where are its roots? If it is not the dearth of talented individuals and definitely not the inadequacy of the numbers turning up, then what is it? Is there any wrong in the attitude of young people? Some say that youngsters these days look up to engineering as an option to financially secure their lives and not a bit for promoting engineering standards and to advance technologies or view engineering quite opposite to the way we deem them to!
So, who can fix this issue? What shall be done to solve it? From whichever angle you look at it, the root-cause of this problem lies within the academia itself, where an engineering-aspirant is turned an engineer. When the academia fails to drive its candidates through an industry-oriented channel, it reflects on the outcome in terms of ‘prospective engineers’ being churned out. Academia should strive to induce in its candidates the much needed soft skills only which would make them work-ready. Learning the knowhow of Work culture, which in many ways is same as ‘Job-Readiness’ has to be made a part of the academics and taught from the days as early as at least the third semester of their normative engineering course which would ultimately make them more appealing to a potential employer. Otherwise, he/she is bound to feel well off the beets to adapt to a new culture and environment and fails to express his/her feelings or technically speaking, market themselves to an employer.
This is where BigLeap lends a helping hand to the institutions and students at the same time. From the same old-fashioned rote-learning to a more industry-specific logical way of learning – the transformation that will make the industry-demands and campus-outputs irrevocably linked with each other and only which could help improve the employability index!
BigLeap will remain the purveyor of Employability and wishes to establish our role as the catalyst in conducing positive change in the world around us through spot-on intervention and delivering of high-quality industry-specific training programs which harness the latent skills and raw talents of our youth and thereby increasing the productivity of this great nation in the field of engineering.
Be a facilitator in skill development and campus to corporate connect programs that would one day help us to proud ourselves on looking back at our efforts in transforming maximum youth in the state into employability, thus supporting the nation in yielding what would turn out to be its biggest and most valuable asset.
To build an ecosystem wherein the channels for a job-aspirant to train his powers in order to land a job of his liking, for an employer to fetch a talented and skilled employee suiting its job-role and for academia to promote engineering as a tool to technologically advance this nation find convergence.
