IITTI now part of United Nations


Dec 20, 2019

IITTI is happy to announce that IITTI World Civility Index is now a part of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

One of United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, specifically Goal #8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, is to find meaningful, long-term employment for young people around the world. This is especially pressing in the age of artificial intelligence, block chain and computer automation where companies are needing less and less workers while employees retained are expected to have higher and higher soft skills such as business etiquette, empathy, and intercultural awareness. While at the same time, many young people are found to have lower soft skills over the last decade, mainly due to "screen time" in front of a computer or cellphone.

IITTI has proposed that through its 'World Civility Index', a universal soft skills measurement system can be adopted so that trainers, job-seekers as well as human resource managers can be all "on the same page". Without such a standard, there is no measurement. Without measurement, job-seekers won't know what to be trained. Without training, there is no improvement.

IITTI will be working with all partners towards this goal for the many years to come. Join us in this movement!
