Description

There are nearly 1.5 billion people in India and over thirty percent of them are well educated and can speak fluent English. This means the world relies on them since Indians provide an educated workforce for today’s competitive and technology-driven workplace. As such, Indian men and women are seen in professional and middle management ranks in various industries across the globe. This study focused on the technical, human and conceptual skills of a selected number of respondents from India to see if gender differences can be a factor. The results of 200 respondents show that these men and women have significantly different skills. Women have an extremely high score on the technical and human skills and men have a high score on the conceptual skills. Implications for researchers, managers, and human resource professionals are presented.
